I reached Dubai today and went straight to the tournament and I'm told I can't attend any matches because the entire tournament is sold out. There were tv screens in the office which showed matches and 75% of the stadium was empty! Anyhow, I bought a ticket off this guy and got in and attended the matches, but why dont they have some policy where people who purchase tickets and then dont attend for a certain duration lose out to other people willing to take the ticket.

I have to go looking for spectators to buy tickets from tomorrow as well. :rolleyes:

Oh, did you ES viewers here me blow my horn during the Hingis and Momo matches today? :p

Yeah I know and I was so pissed off. All these idiots, who know shit about tennis,with tickets while I, with more tennis knowledge in my pubes, without one. The man I bought my ticket for today from was an Indian (I'm SO grateful to him for selling me his extra ticket). But yeah, I was pissed off and felt like ranting. I was looking for Lindsay so I could start bitching about Larry Scott to her. :p

TBE, I saw Likhovtseva/Zvonareva vs Rodionova/Vesnina warm-up. Tried to take pictures, but couldn't get a goood shot. Also saw Queen Masha, Nastya, Doushevina amongst the Russian queens.

Get me one as well, if you can, and blow your horn real loud when you do. I'll appreciate it.

How much will that cost?
I prefer to buy tickets for 30 Dirhams for all matches in the day... I attend all matches. Of course they can have packages :shrug:

Btw. I'm ticketless as well. I attended the first 3 days, and will attend 3 days in ATP, but that's it. :(

The box office said its sold out. :eek:

The ticket system is fucked up...it's good for people like me who want to attend every match, but when idiots like sania's fans buy all the tickets and then we have empty stadiums, thats really annoying.

Did you attend today? What were you wearing? I might have seen you. ;)

I was the Pakistani guy in the green shirt and jeans who was smoking downstairs and outside or in the stadium blowing the horn. :p I looked kind of lost and dejected. I was carrying a bag with me.

Why didn^t you check ticket availability before you went to the tournament?
I've been to lots of tournaments before and it's never happened (including Dubai in 2003).

Besides, there wasn't anyway to buy tickets online that I knew off, or I would have bought mine in advance.

It's raining in Dubai right now.

I wanted to tell her how it didn't make sense that there were no tickets while people stood outside dying to get in but couldn't and the girls inside were playing to an empty stadium. And generally, how Larry Scott is an idiot. I'm sure she would have agreed!
