Have been to Midland 100k in MI the past two years and that's amazing as well. In some ways, better than pro events. You can get so close to the players, talk to them, ask for pictures, etc. The guests are allowed in the "lounge" area where the players are hanging out and using the computers so it's nice to see how they act in that time as well. Seeing Jamie Hampton on FB
An ITF 100K is a pro event.

2012 Heineken Open FQR: Adrian Mannarino VS Artem Sitak (local player)

Yet to watch live WTA . Must try to get to the 2015 Auckland WTA I think.

Re: Your first live match...

Paris Indoors in 2009 - Jankovic vs. Cornet. I was there from the QF onwards and I was treated to a real feast and with hindight, I feel very privileged to have been in the stands for Mauresmo's last tour title.

There weren't a lot of people, and the atmosphere was pretty lackluster, but I learned after years of practice that the fun matches were on the outer courts.

In the big stadiums, I prefer sitting behind the baseline, because it gives you a "TV view" like you are accustomed to, but everybody has their own preferences. When you go to a bigger tourney, and can go earlier in the event, when more matches are going on, you learn that you'll usually have more fun, and get closer to the action, and the players, on the outer courts. I much prefer the sightlines and experience of watching matches on the secondary courts.
Behind the baseline is my preference too. I went to one day of the 2012 Auckland Men's on a side-view all day - never again . Seeing live players was still cool, but definitely side-view is not my ideal.
