Yes, it is. Thank you.

Meanwhile, back on topic.....my first live match was the 1984 Virginia Slims of California final, played at the Oakland Coliseum Arena. Martina Navratilova was on a 44-match winning streak, which was broken by Hana Mandlikova 7-6(8), 3-6, 6-4.

Re: Your first live match...

My first live tournament was actually an ATP event in Adelaide the match was Lleyton Hewitt vs Tommy Haas in 2001 (Haas won with the hilare scoreline 64 06 61)

I have been to the Australian Open in 2003 and every year since 2007 so I have seen plenty of live matches

My very first live women's was Mary Pierce vs. Patricia Wartusch, in 2003 I think

I have never been to a WTA event

My preference is to be directly behind the players and I always get stadium ticket directly behind the players, I can't stand sitting at side of the court turning your heading all day long!

Yeah, it can get very monotonous, especially the closer you sit toward the net, too, when you have to turn your head all day. As was mentioned earlier, a corner seat isn't a bad alternative, but I still like the baseline view because there's no mistaking line calls that way, and you get an unobstructed view of the action.

On a smaller stadium or outside court, typically, you won't have that option, but at least you can be close to the court and the players, which makes for great photos and videos.

Rosmalen 2004, I think it was Schnyder - Medina. Anabel won easily which was a big surprise to me back then.
