Cool Who's Goin' To USO 2006?

alright there was a thread in GM in which posters mentioned they were going to go to USO but we need an official thread here in the tournament thread

I will be going to the USO as with every year

Y'll will be reading my Report threads, including sightings of the players at the official player hotel in Manhattan (which just conviniently is on my way to work every morning)

I will be going for several days (probably during the first week) and hopefully not paying for it. I will be convincing the CTA (Chinese Tennis Association) to give me their grounds passes on days the Chinese girls play

I am thinking about going. How to convince CTA to get a ground passes ?
but i think accomodation will cost most of my money. NYC is so expensive

cool, knowing people in CTA Does they know fans don't like CTA's decisions on Peng Shuai at all ?
I am a Chinese but a student in a US school now. I maybe go to NYC at the labor day weekend.

I'll definitely try to go to qualifiers. It's the best sports deal in all of NYC.

It's all free. You just walk in and can go to any court you like. If a match is good, stick around. If boring, go to another one. And in addition to the matches, you'll see some of the main draw players practicing on adjacent courts.
