Cool SUNDAY Report

I went to US OPEN today to see players practice. Got there pretty late, after most of the rain. Here is what I saw:

Mary practicing with a male partner and her brother coaching - Mary was great with the fans and signed autographs, posed for pics w/ everybody

Jie Zheng practicing w/ Shenay Perry ... the rains came and they had to call off the practice. I talked to Jie though and got my pic w/ her. She told me she was excited to be scheduled 1st on Monday so she knows what time her match is. She then later practiced with Zi Yan

Justine practicing on a bigger court w/ Carlos and a male partner. She looked OK. Not spectacular

Anna C practicing w Iveta

Sesil practicing w/ an African American player I could not identify

Li Na practicing w/ Janet Lee. Li Na's coach told me that she has recovered from her injury but her serves were and doubles specialist Janet was hitting some unreturnables

Maggie practicing w/ Kveta

Gisela practicing with Masha K

Conchita playing w/ someone I could not identify. When a male player who had the practice court next came on the court early, Conchita tried to drill him w/ a forehand

Sun Tian Tian practicing with 3 players I did not recognize

She looked pretty good but since this was one of the practice courts surrounded by bushes I did not have a very good view

Nope but a friend of mine said Roger was practicing somewhere and drew a big crowd

Male players I saw

Ivo Karlovic (he is TALL - seemed like twice as tall as me)
Leander Paes (with a huge Indian crowd)
Paradorn (court next to Mary)

Conchita would. She needs to stop the diva act.

Memo to Conchita:

No-one likes you, you aren't that good anymore, that male player would kick your ass in a match, you're ugly as hell, and you'll be out first round come Tuesday!!

(awaiting the bad reps......)

If she would've ever done that to me, I wouldn't have had any of it!! All of Flushing Meadows would've heard what I had to say to her!!!

Conchita, you are my hero. K-Dog, you and Conchita are both bitches, thus you would make a great doubles partnership.
