Who's going to visit me at the Davis Cup?
 
As I (and the rest of my office) frantically work to prepare Boise for Davis Cup in April, I got to wondering if any of my fellow TalkTennis members were going to make the trip to Idaho for the match. Boise has a great tennis atmosphere and we are pumped to have the teams coming to town. Hope to see some of you here!

What are the dates?
I may swing by to cheer for Serbia...

Dates are April 5-7.

http://www.daviscupboise.com/

Tickets will go on sale Feb. 25 (USTA members) and Feb. 27 (general public). Tickets will be sold in three-day packages only, starting at around $100 and going as high as $400 to $500 for VIP access. Approximately 30 to 40 percent of attendees will come from out-of-state, Ryan said. He said previous Davis Cup stops in Austin, Texas, Birmingham, Ala., and Winston-Salem, N.C. sold out within hours.

I reserved a room this morning within walking distance of the arena, just in case I want to go. This is my best shot to watch Davis Cup.

My husband and I attended the Davis Cup Final when it was in Portland back in 2007, I think. We tried to get tickets online but they sold out within minutes. Luckily a friend in NYC is friends with PMacs wife and she was able to finagle us some tickets through that connection. They were great seats --- actually in the players box/area so we sat next to Andy Roddick's father and in front of the J-Block. The fans there were rather interesting. Not what I thought were the typical tennis fans. We also sat by some people with a cowbell who had driven from Las Vegas to Portland in their RVs. They did not play tennis at all. Never did figure out why they were tennis fans and there.

We will be in Sun Valley from 3/24 thru 4/3 to squeeze out one more week of skiing then will be in Boise from the Thur in the a.m. and at DC all weekend........only day to play would be maybe the Thursday afternoon?

I attended the Austin DC a few years ago, tickets popped up fairly regularly on Craigslist after the first day. I'd love to go to Boise, I bet Greg Patton is going nuts out there.

I'm n Oregon and because of that have never been able to see a pro match (apparently the ATP doesn't have interest in having a tournament in the entire western US outside of southern CA) so I will try to get tickets and make the drive. Hopefully it works out his is very exciting.

marosmith 02-26-2013 06:33 PM

Me and father in law got tickets. We will be there!!

What is there to do in Boise outside of the tennis?

r2473 04-05-2013 06:35 PM

Since its 1-1 after day one, I bought a ticket for Sunday. I figure Bryan Bros. will win doubles, Djokovic will win his singles match, which should make the Isner / Troicki match a fun atmosphere and worth my 5 hour drive from Salt Lake (and I'll get to watch Djokovic too, which is nice).

I figure its a once in a lifetime opportunity for me to see Davis Cup as I'm probably not going to go too far out of my way for it.

Awesome fishing and outdoors - drive up to Sun Valley for one of the worlds greatest ski resorts!!!!! 2.5 to 3 hr drive max.

Also with the university the you have plenty of cheap eats and cool places to eat and hang near campus.
