Through the brother-in-law of my sister-in-law we got 2 free tickets to the final of the Rogers Cup tennis tournament. I had been a few years ago when a Dutch guy was in final but things have changed. The 'new' stadium is very nice and this year the ladies were playing. No Dutchie in the final (or even in the tournament for that matter) but to compensate that, there we 2 Belgians in the final (2 halves makes 1 :)

In the end Kim Clijsters beat Justine Henin-Hardenne but it didn't really matter too much to us. It was fun also because we saw Martina Navratilova play in the doubles finals (although it would have been nicer if we had realized earlier that she was playing...) Great seats, nice weather and an entertaining game. It's kinda sad that tennis is not as popular as in Europe though. I mean, the game was halfway when finally everybody had arrived. It looked more than a sponsor event. But on the positive side: if it would be popular, we wouldn't probably have gotten the tickets. Thanks again for the tickets, Gary.
