Well .. my wife and I entered the lottery for Wimbledon tickets last november and won the right to purchase two tickets on court 1 for 51 each (almost $100 each) for tomorrow (28th June). Of course we bought them but they get more expensive every year. The tickets are in Row AA of the second section- but can never tell if that means the 1st or 27th row. I can't find a decent searting chart to tell me which.

anyway ....

You really never know who you are going to see play until the day before. We just got the draw and will see:

1 Ladies' Singles
Nadia Petrova (RUS)[8]
vs Maria Sharapova (RUS)[2] biggrin.gif

2 Ladies' Singles
Lindsay Davenport (USA)[1]
vs Svetlana Kuznetsova (RUS)[5]


just hope it doesn't rain.

Well...

row AA was the 27th row and not the first .. so a little far back and I will have to zoom/crop clean up the pictures before I post any decent ones.

Still a great day of tennis .. had 6 full hours of it before the rain came in. Both women's singles matches went to a tie breaker in the first set and then the favorites (Sharapova and Davenport) breaking serve and wining cleanly in the second set. We also saw some doubles and some junoirs tennis on the outside courts which are fun to just stroll around.

I looked in some of the shops for trading cards but did not see any - just posters and postcards and lots of other merchandise.

I know in other years I've been by the entrance to the press area and by the practice courts and a lot of the players are friendly and will sign autographs. But sometimes with the star of the moment things can get a little hectic.

but ... If you haven't been to a tennis tournament and there is one in a city near you .. I highly recommend going .. its a really nice day out - great crowds and exciting athletics.

-Jim

Isn't that how it always works? Surprises about your seat are not normally good ones. laugh.gif

Glad to hear that you had a great time though.

Maria - yes
Lindsey - NO

I'm jealous I love tennis but have never seen a professional match. I play all the time for fun and actually wish we talked about tennis more on these boards. The French Open was great, I wanted Federer to finally get over the hump and win it but Nadal is just so good on clay.
