A family of four would like to go see the semifinals or finals of this (or any other premier tennis event.) Cost: One thousand Dollars OR MOREwith parking and a few refreshments if they want decent seats. WTF! Is it really necessary that the top players make more than $1.000.000 to win an event like this. And obviously the businessmen behind are making out like banshees. Reprehensible!
There is a Moet & Chandon lounge. We bought a champagne bottle and it was served with a plastic dropstop with the Moet & Chandon logo. I wanted to take one dropstop for my friend as she is passionate for this brand, but the administrator did not allow me to do it. This is a shame for Moet & Chandon. This plastic thing does not cost anything, but overall impression of the luxury brand was ruined by this behavior.
Nice court yard Big place many facilities. Good food
More close and personal with all of the players. Also, attracts a lot of the top ten players in the world. Very organized and fun place to watch great tennis and eat great food and drink. Seating area in shade, outside courts with jumbo screens are great
