Re: Your first live match...

My first live matches were the semifinals and the final in Sofia, one month ago. It was incredible, better than I expected. I think you know what was the main reason for this. Her name starts with S

Sofia 2012 RR: Zheng vs Petrova

It was amazing feeling, you see all these on TV and then they appear 3D in front of you.
You can follow every emotion, every single move by both players. There's nothing like it.

Gosh, I sound like Mike81.

Re: Your first live match...

I think US Open 2010. Only been to two tournaments US Open and New Haven, but I would love to go to some more in the future.

Watching tennis live I really appreciate how good the players really are, even some of the scrubs.

Re: Your first live match...

It was an exho between Julia Görges and Kerber

Yes, it did live to the expectations since I desperately wanted to see a live match after watching on TV for years.

Re: Your first live match...

The first match I saw live was Cincinnati in 2005. It was Patty Schnyder vs. Caroline Wozniacki. It was also Woz's first pro match of her career.

The worst seats are on the side. You can see only part of the play. You look at one half completely missing the other, then you have to switch to the other side missing the previous one. You have a tunnel view of the match never seeing everything at once.
The seats completely behind are much better as you see the entire game at once, but it doesn't give you the same personal connection with the player.
So for me the best seats are corner seats. And as close to the court as possible.
