Nice to see an other Luxembourgish member in this forum!!! :wavey: :wavey:

Unfortunately I have exams and can't go to the Seat Open!!! :mad: :fiery:

But I will follow the matches of Anne, Claudine and Mandy on the internet if I am at home at the respective hours! I hope that they schedule the matches of the Luxembourgish girls in the evening, so that I can follow them live. :D

PS: Are there other Luxembourgish fans in this forum? Please answer!!!

She told me she will be playing in Luxembourg a few weeks ago (in Hasselt)

What is the tournament like? Is there a really warm and friendly atmosphere? Not too massive? And can you easily approach the players and can you access the practice courts? What was so good about it?

:) I am really curious :)

Ok yep the tournament is really small, it is held in one sports hall with two courts inside, I found the staff really friendly and helpful we stayed there the whole week and after the 1st day all the staff knew us already (maybe because we were the only english) The best thing to do to access players is to get there early because they will be praticing on the showcourts before play starts, and the doors are normally open, we did this everyday and it was just us and the players :lol:. The actual practice courts you cannot get to or really see to well, so i recommend getting there before play starts :) Another area where you get to meet and see the players is the upstairs bar/resturant, it joins onto the players lounge. The thing i liked about the tournament is that everyone was so helpful and friendly, for instance they had a stall with pictures taken from previous tournaments, i asked if i could but one and the lady told me to just take as many as i wanted for free. They are very kind and relaxed.

Hope you have a good time :D

I forgot to add take a warm coat, it is freezing in there :lol:

I have a lot to do too, that's the main reason I hesitate. I want so much to see Maggie live before she retires and after CooCooCachoo (thanks for that) said she'll be here, I'll do my best.

Well, I am not exactly Luxembourgish (even though I live in the Grand-Duche) but after the representatives of my home-country I support mainly the Luxembourgers. :wavey:

Wow! That sounds really nice :) I should definitely go as much as I can then :D Where did you stay?

Two courts inside.. And the practising.. That sounds like Hasselt, but I am sure it will be better than that (Hasselt was so cold, when it comes to the atmosphere).

The picture thing rocks :lol: I hope they do that again :D

Yes.

The 200 should get you there. Although the 5 is probably better.

Well, when you went to Niagara Falls from Montreal and back in two days (together 16 hours of car-driving) you feel this is very short actually. :lol:

I hope I will get off the bus at the right station. :p

So I take the 200 until which station? And it goes from Luxemburg to Kockelscheuer directly yes?
