buried thread has been unburied (much fun was had flicking through dis 1)

I've never actually been to the Open before (been playing tennis since I was 10 but have never really got into the professional tour) so I bought a ground pass for Wednesday, any tips/recommendations/insight into what calibre of matches I might see? Am I better hanging around the showcourts or Hisense?

I'm a pretty big Tennis fan and get a lot of enjoyment out of wandering around all the show courts and watching a variety of different matches. There's often some pretty good matches regardless of the ranking of players, I personally reckon it's a better dayout than sitting in the big courts and getting force-fed whatever they send out.

If you're more of a casual fan and just want to see some of the more popular players I'd reccomend just hanging around Hisense or the two biggest showcourts though.

Ground pass is the way to go. Float around the show courts and you'll see some seeded matches. Heaps to do as around the precinct with the Hieneken beer garden always a highlight.

BTs guide to the Australian Open

1. Buy ground pass

2. Go straight to Heineken Beer Garden early to avoid hour long lines

3. Stay there all day and enjoy the atmosphere and somechoice beverages. Tennis on the big screen plus decent live acts = better than the actual tennis

Avoid any matches where the fanatics are in attendance. Homicidal tendancies bubbling below the surface will be unearthed as those fuckwits proceed to ruin your afternoon.
