    I mainly want to see Agassi in singles and McEnroe in doubles, so what do you think the best day to go would be, Friday, Saturday, or Sunday? They haven't released the draw and it might be too late to get tickets once they do, so I can only guess. Will Agassi be seeded #3 with Roddick and Hewitt there, or is Hewitt going to be knocked back because he's #11 now?

    Agassi is scheduled to play Monday night, and McEnroe is scheduled to play Wednesday night, as of this time. If you go after those nights, you're taking the risk that they won't lose their first round matches. BTW, Hewitt also plays Wed. night.

    I'll assume he at least gets to the quarters. Friday is quarters and Saturday is semis, but do you think he would be afternoon or evening? I would just get the ticket to the final, but if he's seeded #3 he'd play Roddick in the semis and I wouldn't want to miss that. Problem is I'm going with people so I can't just buy tickets for all of these dates and spend hundreds of dollars.

    If Agassi played Roddick in the semis, that will DEFINITELY be the night match on Saturday night. Believe me.

    If Andre is the number 3 seed, he will be randomly drawn for the top or bottom half of the draw. There is no way to know if he would play Hewitt or Roddick until the draw is made.

    In the past few years, Andre has always played the night matches.

    I wish Tommy Haas was playing again this year. Just love his OHBH. I wonder why he's not?

    Because its the week after Davis Cup and last September he said he would never play the week after DC again (he had played 3 tough matches against South Africa and arrived at his next tournament completely exhausted). I'm very bummed that he won't be there.

    Oh, as for getting tickets, I have always gotten crazy deals from Craigslist. Just wait until 24 hours before the match you want to go to , and I guarentee some desperate seller will lower the price..

    I saw the Agassi-Melzer, Roddick-Enqvist match last year for 20 bucks, 10 feet behind the baseline!
