SAP Open draw. It's actually a really fun draw with some interesting potential early round matches:
- First Round: Querrey California vs. Baggy; The Sockless Wonder vs. Lleyton; Special K vs. Gilles Muller
- Second Round: A-Rod vs. Ernie; Elf vs. Kei or Muller
- Third Round: Elf vs. Mardy or Lleyton
I'm going to try and actually attend the night sessions of the tournament. Unfortunately that means that in order to see Crazy Train I'm probably going to have to sit through an A-Rod or Blah match. That would be enough to keep me home, but I promised Gauloises that I'd try and get Elf into a body bag and ship him across the pond in time for Valentine's Day.
I am a woman of my word.
I hope they don't screw me and schedule him for the day session all week. If that's the case he better make it to the weekend so I can see him then. Here's hoping I can catch Sam/Baggy, Special K, A-Rod Ernie, and at least 2 sessions of Elf.
And avoid Blah, of course. I'm not going to drive an hour through traffic to take a nap.
