Who's going where?

I've got five days in Miami again in '10, as well as a box seat for the week at Ponte Vedra. Also considering a couple of days in NY for the Open. Who else has plans to attend tournaments in person?

Cincinnati for sure.

I used to travel to others (Charleston x2, Indian Wells, Amelia Island) in years past, but I kinda doubt it this coming year due to my work situation (or should I say, lack-of-work situation :p ).

If things go really well for me work-wise in 2010, maybe Bali?!?! I can dream, :p .

How was that? I'm considering going next year since the tickets are quite cheap.

well my partner enjoyed it and he's not even a tennis fan so i guess that's a good sign!

it seems like a well organized event: you can watch the players practice, easily get autographs....i attended quarter-finals day on centre court, there weren't many empty seats left, really good atmosphere with a mixed aged group. there was a nice restaurant overlooking one of the courts which offered a good selection of food where you can eat and watch a match at the same time! ;) and there's also a crepe stall selling yummy pancakes, we even got a free one! plus the usual promotional stalls/shops etc

my only problem was that the centre court grass set off my hayfever big time, but the st.john's ambulance crew were very helpful and the site doctor gave me anti-histamines which sorted me right out in time for the sharapova match!

Probably the French Open once again.

Maybe Luxembourg, never was there but I'm living at only 93 km.

And Metz but that's ATP.

I always go to the US Open, usually 3 sessions or so.
I went to the Pilot Pen this year (and saw Nando and Caro win!) but I don't know if I'm going to go again, it depends if there are players I like there.
Once I am older (I can't even drive...) I will definitely go all over the US for tournaments and perhaps to other Grand Slams.

If things go my way I might attend either Sydney or AO, combined with a job stay in Melbourne.

The thing that would worry me is that I'm allergic to strong light (direct sunrays), especially when I haven't got a base tan.
Flying in from Europe in January could simply burn off my skin if I don't take any precautions, not only arms and legs but also my face.
There is some medicine that helps (oldschool anti malaria, for some reason), but you don't want to take a lot of that.

Perhaps also some days at RG or Eastbourne, depending on my work (I work part time in the UK).

French Open again!!

I'm surprised more people from the forum don't come to Miami. The weather's perfect, it's got a ton of attractions outside of the tennis, is very cosmopolitan and the various nationalities really go all out in supporting "their" players. I remember the Serbs stomping their feet on the bleachers for JJ a couple years ago, and the Slovaks went crazy for "Domi!" And of course the Williamses have a huge fan base there. And the Latin players have huge followings there.

Seriously, if you've ever considered going, it's a blast.

Rogers Cup, crossing my fingers that Dokic will be playing! Will be my first time seeing her live.:hearts:

Would love to travel and visit other tournaments, especially the US Open but don't have the money being a full time student/part-time worker so ..... :shrug::(
