    Anyone going? It's in my backyard so I hope to make the semis and finals. Smyczek and Sock met in the finals last year. I hope they both return.

    It's in your backyard? That's awesome! Unfortunately, I can't because of scheduling conflicts. I hope I can catch the tournament on a live stream. :)

    Pretty much. It's in C-U, and I'm in B-N. You and Clarky should clear your schedules for next year, and we'll have a meet-up!

    Given that it is October, does it usually get cold in Illinois? Also, Clarky doesn't care about American tennis. We discussed it many times, and it is dismissed because it is 'unimportant' and a 'waste of time'.

    Personally, I find it intriguing to see the young players duke it out! :)

    It's an indoor tournament at the University of Illinois.

    I think my boy is playing, but I can't make the trip.
