Haha yep I am going with a mate next year. I need to look at hotels/trains there soon.

Ooh nice one! Are you going in the first week? Smile I think Andrew found an Ibis hotel near a train station which goes to RG and also has easy city access. Bring it onnnnnn!

I remember going to what I think was a Challenger tournament in the nineties when the likes of Andrew Castle were playing, but 2009 has been my first year of really being into tennis in a big way.  I was at the O2 for these matches...

Davydenko v Djokovic
Del Potro v Verdasco
Federer v Murray

I also spent at least an hour watching Rafa in the practise court.

I couldn't even start with this. I totally don't remember. 2 years at Aberdeen Cup, 4 or 5 Davis Cup ties, a trip to Washington, couple of days at Wimbledon, a trip to Montreal and a few days at the O2 this year means I pretty much can't remember everyone I saw. I did take pictures of the scoreboards in Montreal so I could list them if I went flicking through the photos. Don't watch much womens stuff. Big names I've seen on the mens side.

Nadal
Federer
Djokovic
Murray
Del Potro
Davydenko
Roddick
Robredo
Verdasco
Safin
Haas
Henman
Gonzalez
Ferrer
Ferrero
Rusedski
Ancic
Cilic
Bryans
Simon
Soderling
Monfils
Isner

That's the main guys. A couple are 5-10 mins, a couple I've seen a couple of times for full sets and matches.

Next objective is to catch a match between some of these top guys. Need to be later in the tournament obviously.
