Hi everyone!

Has anyone who has attended a tournament happened to notice a trend in how long before a scheduled match a player practices? I'm sure it's not exactly the same every time...but is there an average? It would be nice to know if I should check the practice courts like 2 hours or 3 hours before a scheduled match.....heck, maybe it's only 1 hour before.....but I bet there is a certain amount of time before a match that a player would ideally like to practice...if anyone has ever paid attention this please let me know! Thank you very much!

i've been to the sydney tourney and there is no real trend as ive noticed. once, a player (cant remember who) was scheduled to play and he was practising right before the match! i was really surprised but i guess they were really desperate for practice.
i usually turn up at around 1 or 1.5 hrs before play starts in the tourney because thats when all the players like to practise.
