Re: Serena books her Turkish Airline flight to Istanbul YEC
I missed all the drama and excitement here on the forum when it lasted, but I just wanted to say: What a fantastic end of the season it was for us Serena fans. It really feels great to be a fan.
I am so happy that I decided to go to Istanbul and watch Serena live, it was great. The organization of the tournament may have been bad, and I mean really bad, with people taking whatever seats they wanted, talking loudly and walking around during matches and no one saying anything to them, etc. I myself, was sitting on the stairs during the final as I had a ticket in the very top box and my fear of heights kicked in big time, lol. The complimentary program / daily magazines were available in a white tent outside the arena with no information whatsoever that it's even there and on top of that it was closed on the day of the final (at least when I arrived in the middle of Doubles final match), so I have no final magazine.
Still, I had a great time at the matches and witnessing Serena win the tournament was an icing on the cake. Definitely going next year. Will try to post some pictures as soon as I can.
