Usually my family goes to the US Open, but I think this year were going for a little changeup and head to New Haven. Is anyone going, and does hanybody who has gone in the past have any suggestions.

Just what its like, I've never gone to a smaller tournament before, and if you have any suggestions as to what to do.

well this is the only tournament i've ever attended, so i can't really share any information in comparison to the open. it's pretty intimate at new haven, though.

i go to new haven every year so hopefully, ill be able to make it up this year. i go to the us open as well and i can say that in terms of intimacy and getting to see/talk to players one on one, new haven is great. whereas big players are usually swarmed at the us open, i found myself having little chats with players after their practice sessions etc. its also nice to go out into downtown new haven during hte tournament as you see lots of players out. just last year, i was at this really discreet cafe i enjoy on a small sidestreet, and francesca schiavone walked in and i wished her luck.

i might be going, depends on what my schedule is like next week, but i went last year for the first time and loved it.
completely different atmosphere than the open, better in a lot of ways.
i wont be able to go to the open so i kind of want to try to make it up there for at least one day, preferably to see daniela, lindsay, and serena.
