We got VIP tickets and our parking space was a short distance to the tennis arena.

Hoa was called to work at the last minutes so I asked Loan to come with me.


Here we are walking to the tennis court.

Posters of former champions lined the walk way to the Tennis court.

We came a bit early so we could not get in the tennis court until 7:00PM

We got really good tickets... there are only 3 rows of seats in front of us and the tennis court is so close to our seats.
