I went years ago and saw all the players up close. I mean I was literally tossing balls to Andy Murray and Brad Gilbert. I want to recreate the trip with my father but I'm not sure when to go? 3rd, 4th, 5th, or 6th? It would be great to see some good matches but the main thing is seeing as many of the top pros as possible practicing. Last we went 2 or 3 days early and I know I saw Fed, Nadal, Murray, Sharapova, Bahgdatis, Haas, Safin, and others. I heard if you go on the third and fourth there is no fee, but it doesn't look like any of the big players would be playings since they are qualifier rounds. Would the top pros be practicing these days? I"m thinking the 5th and the 6th would be the best days to go. Any advice is appreciated. BTW- the biggest observations from being up close on the practice courts: 1. I had never seen anybody move forward on the tennis court as fast, smooth, and effortlessly and Andy Murray. 2. I have never seen the ball bounce straight up on a fh like when Nadal was practicing. Seemed to defy physics. 3. Federer is a breed apart. He walks and moves different than any other player, like a panther.
