Hey, If this is in the wrong thread, my bad. I didn't see anywhere else to put this.

So my goal is to travel to 3 grandslams (for one week each only) per year. For those who have traveled to grandslams, is this possible? How much does it cost for an all-inclusive deal (round trip, hotel) approximately for each grandslam?

Extra-Info: I live in Ontario :)

Thanks!

I think it might be possible. Good luck with it.

Australia will be out of the question. It's too far away. Get some cheap tickets to Paris(Toronto-Paris flights can be very cheap if you buy at the right time, try Air Transat) Fly to Paris and get a very cheap hotel in a suburb and take public transport to Roland Garros. Don't buy anything and get grounds passes. Then find a family you can stay with for a week until the French Open is over. Take the train to London (get the cheapest tickets) and get a cheap hotel near SW19. Camp out for day tickets, don't buy any food. Fly straight back at the end of the week. Then take a bus to NY in August. The ride will be 8 hours but it can be bought very cheaply. Find a cheap hotel or motel in Queens. Watch the US Open and come straight back by bus. This should all be possible for a budget of around $2500.

:lol:

I meant next year, 2012. I'm super excited! Does anyone have any tips who've been to the Australian Open before? I don't know whether to go in the first week and catch glimpes of as many players as I can, or in the second week where, by theory, the best matches should happen. I'm going with my family, so that leads to me to choose the second week because they'll probably only know the players that make the second week. I'm just so so SO EXCITED! I want to dress up too, any ideas?

This is a cool idea. If it could seriously be under $3,000, I should do it.

That's also somehting that I'd love to do but like many said it must be very expensive.

In 2009 I went to RG, Wimbledon and the USO.

It was easy for me because I live in London and Paris isn't that far, Wimbledon is only a few miles away from me and my brother lives not that far from Flushing Meadows so it was all good. :) Money wise I was cheap and slept in my car at RG and well at the USO I stayed at my brother's place so for me it wasn't really that much :lol:

Thanks for the advice. For Paris, I wouldn't be so screwed because I have family that live there. I can drive to new york from toronto so yea. Only WIMB I guess I would be spending the big money since I have no family there and I can't drive there. It seems the most money-sense travel would be RG-WIM-USO. Maybe aus once in a long while.
