Emm....I can't remember them all.

I watched Andy playing doubles once. Smile Thats when I met him and got his autograph. Very Happy

I've been to the US Open a few times...and Queens once. I've seen a good number but I'm like too lazy to really think. (or to spell some of the Russian names)

Haha yeah I am missing a lot of doubles where I didn't really look at who was playing.

My last Wimbledon was by far the best. We watched 3 matches from start to finish and stayed until 9.30pm. So much better going with mates than my Mum haha. She complains she is tired at about 4pm.

A lot of these I am cheating as I watched for about 5 minutes. Ie we looked for Karlovic, waited till he served an ace and left haha.

I also "cheat" a lot by watching some matches for 10/15 minutes at Wimbledon. Not too bothered about women but out of the top names - Serena Williams, Ivanovic, Kuznetsova, Hantuchova and Dementieva.

The boys - Roddick, Andy and Jamie Murray, Djokovic (training), Davydenko, Gonzalez wub, Monfils, Cilic, Simon, Berdych, Wawrinka, Hewitt, Ljubicic, Isneer, Andreev, Tipsarevic, Nalbandian, Baghdatis, Safin, Korolev, Tursunov, Agassi and guys like Ram but I couldn't list them all.... bit of a tennis junkie Whistle 

The one that pains me the most is I've never got the chance to see Rafa live... one day Frown

Wimbledon rules!! I went this year for the first time and was totally amazing, had seats for court 2 and didn't know who would be playing, turned out to be my two favourite women, Dinara Safina and Jelena Jankovic!! Then when JJ was finished we went and watched Jamie Murray and Liezel Huber in the most amazing match... I just came away astounded at how amazing it was, my mum was lost and asking me directions and I was still blabbing on bout the doubles Very Happy
Also I pretended I was ill to get out of school, but I got sunburnt! And we had pe the next day....

It's really hard Mark, he's always on Centre court and there's such a small chance of getting resold tickets for him, I've tried. Dying to go to a tournament in Europe, maybe then. pray
