Scott Dunlop: San Diego Bound!

I have just booked tickets to San Diego and will be in the County area Wednesday  through Friday next week (Nov 18-20). I will be visiting courts, talking with tennis leaders and organizers and anyone else who would like to meet to talk tennis!

Would appreciate any referrals and any thoughts on restaurants and social activities to enjoy while in this great area. I am sure I will have trouble leaving the cold wet Vancouver November but I will do my best to suck it up and get through my visit…Contact me here or at sdunlop@juump.com.

I am very impressed by how the strict protocol has been handled and how everyone is invested in making this event a success, but The Open is a completely different scale of details.
