I only got to go on one day cos of exams...and it turned out to be the best day of the lot with a record breaking 17,000 person crowd!

The superdome defimnately should hold an annual event IMO...mid-year would be a good time as it can draw pretty big crowds...another wta event maybe there one day i hope <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> !

first things first...we arrived there LATE , even if it was only 15 minutes late ...and my mate was walking too slow , i was in the biggest hurry.....but we stil made time to buy some souveneirs en route to our seats...i love the shirt i bought <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> !

anyway , the stadium looked quite fancy compared to say the adidas 1 , and had carpet flooring , and an expensive looking architecture to it! my fave feature about the place definately is the fact there are big screens hanging above the court , which lets you see that winning shot TWICE <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> and commentate on it with friends..

the first match , i felt sorry for guga ,the brazilian fans however i did not.....those guys were a bit too loud and were cheering like mad on some of Yevgeny's doubles! eveyone looked at them as if to say "wtf"?... great match by Yevgeny , too bad he couldnt maintain that today <img src="frown.gif" border="0"> !

then on to my fave match EVER........goran goran goran , the cro fans were LOUD ,but also veyr fair imo.....very nice fans.....when he was down match points on one of them i said 'uste edna;(one more) <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> and he did serve an ace <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> ! too bad it was short lasted , and in the tie break he collapsed...a few rallies in set2 like the net exchange , gorans WILD forehand winner really stood out. kudos to goran on a good year!

annd the final match which i wasnt expecting cos some lady behind me said haas would be replacing an ailing rafter.....to my surprise and joy we were gonna get what the near capacity crowd paid for , an aussie slug fest...before the match started we all got up off our seats and sung the national anthem ,and it really set the mood for the match but at the same time increased the pressur eon lleyton.....great win!

i loved the tournament and as i said before hope they make some more(hopefully wta) in the future...my only complaint was the idiocy of some of the staff! there were NONE or RARELY any that ushered u in ...so i was waiting for the game to finish so i could go back to my seat along with another dozen people and one of the workers there came up to us and saidd" you better not plan on standing there at the end of the game".....i replied <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> "yeah , no worries , wed rather stand up and watch from here than go back and sit down"....pffffft <img src="redface.gif" border="0">

Most importantly ,even tho Lleyton isn't clearly my fave i think he deserves a heck of a lot of credit......as long as an Aussie finishes the year no.1 im happy! <img src="cool.gif" border="0">

I'm already dreaming of a Fed Cup final in Belgium...I think it can become as great as the Masters. We Belgians are crazy about tennis these days...
