there is really nothing to miss

last month, i was almost sulking over the fact that the men's singles would start to kick off on the 22nd of February and i've got no tickets for the Dubai Tennis Championships.

ticket sales started on January 11. and too excited as i was, i started calling out my friends who are federer or rafa fanatics. we were planning to buy the tickets within the week. then just when ronna was about to reserve our slots, the shocking disappointment came. tickets were sold out as of January 13! just two days after it announced the sale!

i thought to myself that i've lost the chance of watching and meeting(duh!) federer LIVE!

the weeks dragged and i was still depressed. then just last week, i've read from Gulfnews that federer has pulled out from the dubai championships and also from the davis cup in US. he's got a back injury from last year that he wasn't able to recover to. i hope he comes back to center court soon.

and rafa skipped dubai, too!

this was not exactly a good news right? but knowing that it could have been a waste if i was able to grab the tickets and federer was a no-show, there is no more reason for me now to sulk.

remember this scene from the australian open 2009? i still feel like crying for roger federer. i just love this man!

you're right there...

i'm really hoping that next year he could play here in dubai. and i'll book my tickets first thing as soon as the sale of tickets is announced.

my officemate watched last night and andy murray is the crowd favorite daw. *duh!*

i would love to watch other grand slams pero super expensive!

You and KG are very much alike. I wonder who Federer will choose from you two?! :)
