I won't be taking my laptop with me Falcon because I just want to completely enjoy Paris and RG again but I can definitely guarantee you a full report and some pictures again(hopefully a few of Rafa for sure :)  ) as soon as I get back  :) I don't quite follow the last part though Falcon?  :))

Hey that's alright...I'll wait for you as soon as you get back to me with some wonderful pics...ahh don't bother about the last part...just thought you might bump into justine too (RG, no?  :)) )  so you might snap a few pics of her too....have a fantastic time Chris...do you plan to be there for the finals as well?  That would be just the icing on the cake you know....
Just have a great time....hope you get to see some superb matches as well  :)  oh just saw the dates...may be you'll be there for the semis i guess.

and what about you BGT? When are you going there?

My thought was you might be on about Justine there Falcon, and how cool would that be to see her around the grounds, you never know she might do some commentary work so if I ever see her there I'll be sure to get a picture of her :) Thanks for the wishes, I'm sure I'll have a wonderful time at RG and in Paris, just like last year :) and hopefully some fantastic matches- quarter finals I'll be there for so very much looking forward to a few great days and then sharing my experiences and a few pics with you :)

Can't wait Babble  :)) you know how much I loved it last year. Same dates as last year for me, so I'll be seeing the 2 quarter final days, tickets in a nice spot on Chatrier one day and central spot on Lenglen Court the next day :) I'm staying almost the same area as last time, about 2 minutes walk from where I was last time around as I found it really central to everything and with a direct 5 minute metro to RG I really like that area of the city :)

Any hope of you getting to New York this summer?

Oh how I wish you came out last year.  :(  It would sure be fun to hangout at a Patty Schnyder or Francesca Schiavone match  :rofl_2:

I forgot, which rounds will you be at the Open?

That would have been absolutely superb last year at the Open and hanging out for a bit with you, maybe not quite at a Schnyder or Schiavone match  :rofl_2: but I'm sure we could have come to some sort of compromise  :))

I'm getting into New York on the first Tuesday of the Open and will be attending the Open itself for both the Day and Night sessions on the Friday and Saturday of the first week, so that will be Mens 2nd round Friday, 3rd round Saturday and Womens complete 3rd round :) A little of Tuesday, all of Wednesday and Thursday as well as some of Sunday will be spent around New York itself :)

Sounds like a great plan! I haven't counted it out. If I went, I would only be able to go for Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday. The odds are stacked against me right now, but I've not given up hope just yet!

Those days would be absolutely perfect then  :) Somehow or other try and take a long week and sort things out that way. After all the studying and work you deserve a few days in NY at the Open  :)) so definitely try to make it happen, that would be fantastic if you could  :)
