Shanghai Rolex Masters

I went to see the Shanghai Rolex Masters at QiZhong tennis stadium in the Minhang district of Shanghai, takes around 1.5 h to get there. I actually went there for two days, its great value for money, for 160 rmb/day up until Thursday you can watch really really good tennis everyday and its not hard to get a ticket at all (and the ticket can be even cheaper if you buy a ticket from the scalpers outside the stadium). The QiZhong tennis stadium is really beautiful, great stadium for tennis, although quite a bit of hassle to get there from central Shanghai. During Wednesday i got to see Berdych, Djokovic, Tsonga, Murray (practice) and Federer play! Only too bad Nadal is still injured, it would have been great to watch him play too.
Djokovic eventually won the tournament, after saving 5 matchpoints against Andy Murray in the final!
