Its a small tournament. i think a train ticket will cost about 30 dollars and the entrance is only 15 bucks, so money is not that big an issue. other options are do nothing that weekend, hitch a ride to Holland, do nothing, or go to some other town nearby paris to change the air. :rolleyes:

here were last years draw:

Go to the tournament. Don't even think about doing something else!!!

That's what I would say. I try to go to every small tiny very tiny little tournament, but a 75K - oh my god. I would buy my tickets beforehand(nah...) and made it clear that my camera works by checking it every day 2 weeks beforehand.

:D

I'd go to Dinan, it's a big ITF so you will have the chance to see a bunch of players who will do some noise in future, plus you can always discover new faves, chat with players, etc, they're usually kind with fans out of all that WTA competition :)
Plus it's in Bretagne, a nice place I want to visit someday, so do it, take pics and send them to me :p

You should definitely go if you like the players who will be playing. And even if you dont, the matches will still be entertaining and u can see players u havent seen before and find some new faves. So go.

Mein deutsch war vohier ganz gut, aber habe ich keine chance deutsch zu sprechen so alles is forgessen, aber mit di richtige mädchen, wir können uns verstandlich machen.

So yes, think i will be going. Its close to Rennes. Kinda sucks to go solo though, "Sluggy" likes the humans... I'll see if there is youth hostel in Dinan, no point in splurging on this.

I'm surprised you have to pay...but I guess it is a $75k...I've only been to $10ks or $25ks - and they were free!; )

€5 is not exactly unaffordable. Its the hotel that will cost more. Any froggies going? It'd be more fun to watch the tennis and share a meal with a french person (with nice manners :lol: ) then to go it alone

More news: Found that Dinan is a beautiful Mideaval (spelling?) city with walls surrounding the cities, castles, etc. Should be pretty sublime, with restaurants and dancing girls (ok maybe there are not dancing girls...). There is even a youth hostel in Dinan - 15,30€ to become a hostel member and 11,50€ for the room for one night. 26,80 is not bad considering the admission is only 5 euros. how does that sound?

The train ticket is €74,60 roundtrip. So im in for about 110 euros not including food. What do you think?

Salut Sluggy !

Je compte égalemrnt m'y rendre pour qq jours... J'ai hésité tout comme toi étant donné le cout (eh oui je n'suis qu'un pauvre étudiant) mais la passion l'a emporté et j'achète mes billets de train demain. Enfin, j'y vais surtout pour voir un double exhibition le dimanche précédant le tournoi, avec one of my best : anne-gaelle sidot !! :hearts: :angel: (elle jouera avec Bahrami, forget et la tete de série numéro 1) bref, ça me dirait bien de partager ces moments uniques avec qqn car personne ne veut venir en bretagne avec moi pour l'instant ;)

J'te laisse mon mail/msn , c'est plus simple : plokiploploki@hotmail.com
