Nope, I no longer live in Syracuse and I'm presently in LA for a short work. I am driving back home to Texas next week and I decided to drop by at scottsdale to watch tennis. Can you help me get tickets?

Really, I'm in Plano now which is outside of Dallas.
I don't know if I can help you get tickets, since I won't be there when you will...If you want to order then online try ticketmaster

Isn't this the tournament with a rather bizarre policy on cameras?

I remember someone complaining last year about a ban on all cameras with interchangeable lenses, i.e. quality photo gear, as well as vidcams, apparently for security reasons after September 11. Bag checking took too long with this kind of equipment. And there was also an issue of protecting commercial use of imagery. I don't know if accredited photographers had complained about amateurs getting in on their turf. Or maybe it is a marketing thing, on part of the players. Never attended the tournament, so I have no idea.

Oh, just checked their web page:

Video cameras and photographic equipment with interchangeable flashes and/or lenses will not be allowed on to the site. Flash photography is strictly prohibited.

Please be aware that all bags and persons are subject to search and we thank you in advance for your cooperation. Only small purses and items for personal health and childcare that do not exceed 8 x 11 x 11 will be allowed on to the site. We will ask you to return the following items to your car: backpacks, briefcases, camera cases, gym bags, coolers of any size, umbrellas, and strollers. You will also be asked to discard all food and drink at the event entrance unless it is for medical reasons.

No backpacks and umbrellas! And you can't even bring a sandwich, or a drink to the ground. Ridiculous.

I'm so stoked. I'll be in the same area as last year...really looking forward to seeing you.

The field isn't as good this year so depending on draw I may only do semi's and final...which you will be working because you are the best ball person...no doubt!

OMG!!!! I'm actualy living right now in Dallas right at corners of 75 and 635. I bet we are playing at times in the same courts in Plano. See you there when I get there after Scottsdale.

Is it cheaper to buy online tickets? or just at the gate when I get there? Anyone?

Feb 23rd, 2003, 03:01 PM
You shouldn't have any problem buying tickets at the box office located just outside the tournament site ;)

Feb 23rd, 2003, 05:52 PM
No video cameras! No food and drink! They sound like a right bunch of fascists.

Feb 23rd, 2003, 05:54 PM
I am bringing a power bar in my pocket today, ha, they cannot catch me.

Feb 25th, 2003, 02:54 AM
