Anyone Else Going to Indian Wells?

I just booked my flight, and I'm loving the entry list for both men and women- will be there for the finals weekend, and I'm so psyched for this!

There is nothing more beautiful than Evonne Goolagong in full flight moving across a tennis court.

I'll be happy if I just get to watch her practice again. The practice court just down to the left of the gift shop has a great viewing fence that's elevated above the court, so you can really study the tennis from this angle perfectly (that is, if you can get a place to stand). I've also never seen Roger Federer practice, and hope to see that. He was there a couple of years ago, and all I got to see was a doubles match he was playing on an outside court with Max Mirnyi (followed by a Tim Henman disassembly of Marat Safin), so to see Fedex and Hingis in the same stretch of days would be incredible.

It's a longshot that I will go, I just want to go so badly. Maybe I'll take a bus?

My (retired) tennis bud organizes these trips every year and got a seniors' rate at a small, clean motel in Palm Springs. I'll only be there from Wed-Sun on finals weekend. Get on hotwire.com if you're looking for a deal.
