I was due to see Maria live in Wimbledon this year as my friend bought us tickets to Wimbledon Day One on Centre this year. Unfortunately due to the fact that the tickets had been purchased off his Mum's credit card and she wasn't there in person we were denied entrance to Wimbledon. I was soooo devastated, thought I'd missed my chance to see her :'(
However 2 days later after queueing from like 6 in the morning we got into Wimbledon and got tickets for Court 2. Spotted Hoggy while walking around the grounds and stalked his ass to the media centre before he got away hoping we'd see Maria haha. Managed to get return tickets to see Maria-Pironkova for £10 from her being 4-1 down in the first to the end of the day when the match was suspended. So amazing seeing (and hearing) her live, especially since our seats were the first row behind the baseline so we had an amazing view. Filled my phone with pictures and videos (although she's always looking down toward the court!)
It was such an amazing exhilarating experience, almost lost my voice completely in such a tense match. Any one got any other interesting experiences to share?
Aww. That was nice
Happy for you! hopefully I'd finally get a chance to watch her play live as well prolly sometime next year.

Added that one to my bucket list
