    And what was the result?

    For me: 2007 Rogers Cup Final; Djokovic defeats Federer in 3 sets - 7-6 2-6 7-6.

    I was supposed to go to a 2008 US Open event, but I had work :(

    Ginepri def. Blake 6-2, 6-2 @ the 2008 SAP Open

    i remember expecting a fantastic match from blake, only to get a boring, error-filled bore-a-thon.

    You can do it easily at imageshack.us

    Upload it there from your computer (you can even resize it if it's too big), copy the URL they give you and paste it into the image insert form, which is available on the toolbar above the reply box on this forum.

    On topic:

    I've never been to a pro match. :oops:

    Nadal def Agassi 6–3, 4–6, 6–2 at the 2005 Rogers cup final in Montreal.

    One of the best memories i have, it was Agassi's last time in Montreal. I'll be going back at the Rogers Cup this Wednesday, i hope i can catch a good match.

    The match I remember best is Federer/Ferreira v. Safin/Kafelnikov 7 years ago in Toronto. Terrible tennis, but the guys on the court werer having a great time & it was in a very tiny court, no one knew Federer, and there were only half a dozen girls around Safin. And Kafelnikov was just his stoic self. Tennis histories have been written between then and now.

    Andres Gomez vs. Vitas Gerulitis (RIP). Back in 1987 or something during an exo on the beautiful island of Curacao. Andres Gomez went on to win the tournament. The tournament was called Malboro Invitational. I was a ballboy at the tournament. Our reward: a free Pepsi. It was an honour.

    I have never been to a pro tennis match. I think I would like to go see the US Open or Wimbledon one day. I don't think I could stand the heat of the Australian Open or the French.

    Last match I went to was Venus Williams vs Elena Dementieva and Venus/Serena vs Bethanie Mattek/Nadia Petrova at Stanford 2 weeks ago. Ended too quickly the, the Williams dominating.
