Must be a bit quieter now. A game and 17-15 down...
Please, I will attend AE 2017, saturday - semis, first and probably last time in my life.
So I want to make most of it. Do you have any tips for me so I dont miss anything. Lets say, well you bring your something because you might bump to someone and he can then sign you stuff. Or take lots of money because shuttles are cheap there or rackets. Or if you go to this place at this time you might catch someone...
Stuff isn't cheap at the AE.
Thank you, tell me please someone, are players wandering arround outside courts, like on hallways, can I catch Lin Dan wandering there searching of bottle of coke, are training courts open to public so you can see from very near our heroes?
Nah, players don't really wander around outside. They stick to the back of the venue. Training courts aren't open to public.
And I guess, there is no way to catch them entering arena because there is some special parking space back so they dont go front doors, right?
You've got it
Aaah damnit ... ooh well... I guess just sit in my chair and enjoy.... O yeah, my seat is not behind players but little at the side. Block 5. Soo, should I bring some binoculars? Will I look stupid with those and is there any need to check second court?
You're never that far away. Last time I was there I spoke with some of the court officials, including some lady who invigilates the umpires. You can still meet some interesting people.
I saw many players in the streets and shops around the stadium over the four days I attended last year.
Of course, one does not want to bother every player you see. (Eg. Passing Nozomi Okuhara walkiing to the stadium for her final, deep in thought.)
But I was bold (rude) enough to ask a few other players for a couple photos with my boys. There is a fine line between being an adoring fan and being a bloody nuisance.
Just enjoy being among these athleticly amazing, but otherwise ordinary, young people.
Well you can catch players easily on monday, walking for their training session, and they use the normal entrance ) at least in 2014 it was like that.
You can catch them in the cafeteria sometimes) or at the stands.
this said - almost nothing of it is possible from friday and on - a lot of spectators at the last 3 days.
you will difinitely want to buy some shirts with AE graphics.
Will be at AE Friday till Sunday, as always Unfortunately the best Restaurant Tin Tin is closed - met a lot of players there (Tago, Korean Team etc.). Stuff is too expensive, spend it on beer in the local pubs
Everything in Birmingham (England?) is expensive. Tin Tin was closed last year also, will they ever un-close? Anyway restaurant Wagamama is nice.
I think it would be safe to ask them to take photos with you after the match, or even after team meeting after the session. Before that, it would be rude or you would be refused.

why there is no forum for Tournament 2017?
