I've met:

Serena Williams<br />Meghann Shaughnessy<br />Daja Bedanova<br />Sandrine Testud<br />Kim Clijsters<br />Ai Sugiyama

I didn't get to talk to any of them for a long period of time. Just got their autographs. I think I talked with Kim and Daja the longest. I was able to get a photo of me and Serena together, so that was one of the greatest moments of my life <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0"> . Kim is a really nice person. She even volunteered to take a photo with me, but I didn't have anyone to take my photo <img src="frown.gif" border="0"> Everyone else was very nice as well. I talked with Sandrine in French a little. Told her good luck, and I think she's a great player. Same with Meghann and Daja...though this was before Daja made her brake through at the U.S. Open. It was a few weeks earlier at the Acura Classic.

I have talked to a few, but the funniest one was with Vivi Ruano, it was at Roland Garros 2000, she had just seem me at the Madrid Open the week before where she made the SF after an awful season and I had congratulated her then, so she sees me at RG and comes to me, I am like "hi" and she says "hi" and starts talking and talking about her ranking and her projects, she was chatting to me for hours!!! LOL! she must have been desperated to chat with someone, everybody around me just assumed we were best of friends or something! LOL!

Oh yeah, I remember another funny one <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0"> - with Lisa Raymond also at the Madrid Open, I wanted Lisa and Rennae to give me their autographs so that I could send them to Sub (another poster here), so I printed out a picture of them hugging after winning the AO. So I go to Lisa Raymond with two of them (one for myself and one for Sub), and ask her for her autograph, she looks at the pic and says "it's a great picture" and I am like "yep", so she looks at me and says again "it's a really nice picture", and I am just nodding and pass her the other one so that she can sign it, so she goes on for a third time "it's a really great picture" I guess it hit me then that it was not that she thought I was stupid and couldn't understand what she was saying but rather that she wanted the pic!!! LOL! so I told her she could keep it if she wanted! lol - and she did <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0"> so I didn't get an autograph for myself cuz she kept the pic!!! <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

That sounds like Lisa!!

And have you any idea where Lisa and Rennae visit to see themselves in photos Bea?!

Tennis without Rennae would be like a broken pencil................ completely pointless
