My first full live match was Cornet vs Petkovic at Australian Open 2009 on Court 3. It was full of people but it was rather considering Petkovic got thrashed.
It wasn't until the match after (4 setter(?) between Baghdatis/Soderling) did the whole crowd erupt
Q. Have you thought about your next round opponent?
JJ: Who am I playing? I don't even know who yet. Q. Thai girl.
JJ: Tiger? Q. Tanasugarn.
My first ever day at a tournament was Wimbledon 2012, the first Tuesday. I think the first match I saw was Tomic vs Goffin on Court 2. It was followed by SERENA vs Zahlavova-Strycova. Then I left to wander around the grounds and watched bits and pieces of other matches. Since then I've been hooked. I use all my holiday entitlement to travel for tennis and I LOVE it. There is no time better spent than this.
