What would you say if you met your favourite player?

I met Serena once, and all I could say was "good luck, I know you'll do great" then hit myself on the head after she left
I've met Nadal a few times, but the first time he couldn't really speak English.
Richard Williams is the easiest person ever to hold a conversation with. So he's my favourite.

Re: What would you say if you met your favourite player?

When I saw Ai, the most I was able to mutter was good luck today and she said thank you in her cute voice
But I think I got my message across when I got her to sign the montage I made that had "Simply Amazing" written at the bottom!

Hantuchova/Sugiyama def. (1) Black/Huber 6-7(0) 6-3 7-6(10) saving SEVEN match points, down 2-5 in the third, and down 2-6 in the third set tiebreak in three hours

Ai Sugiyama. Jie Zheng. Zi Yan. Tamira Paszek.
Yaroslava Shvedova. Nuria&MariaJose. Yung-Jan Chan. Elena Vesnina. Flavia Pennetta.

If I met Lindsay Davenport I would tell her how much I've admired her career and that I've modelled my own groundstrokes on hers.

Re: What would you say if you met your favourite player?

I usually don't know what to say. Good Luck always comes out but it's the last thing I was thinking of saying.

When Martina won the Adidas International 2002 all I remember screaming was "Martina Hingis AO Champion" "Kick Ass In Melb Martina"

I probably wouldn't have the nerve to splutter that out. I would probably be like and then good luck.

LOL! That would be my reaction.
And then I'd kick myself for not saying anything.

Re: What would you say if you met your favourite player?

I'd probably plan something out ahead of time, forget all of it the moment I meet her, and then say something incoherent like "Oh my God, Hs. Mingis, it's so nice to eat you. I admire you so much lot. Can I have your autograph? I mean, uh, good luck. I hope you match your win today."


And if I met Rafa, I'd probably just try to make out with him.

Bitttchhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh You Better Pay It Honey! The Devil Is A Liar!!!!! Bitches Get Interviews And Shit? Where They Do That At Honey? Girls Are Late Honey!!!! The Queen Needs To Get Into It Honey Cause The Girls Is Late Out Here! Yes Honey Im Throwing Epic Shade!

Management!

Re: What would you say if you met your favourite player?

@ you guys.

I met Daniela in Miami in 2005, and all I said was, "Good luck."

Daniela kind of ignores her fans when she's walking sometimes.

This year in St. Louis at a WTT match my mom and I talked to Caroline Wozniacki and her father. It was awesome.

My mom did most of the talking as I was too nervous.

In 2005 in Miami I saw Nicole sitting under a palm tree. I went up to her and asked if she could sign my program and she said, "Sure." Then I said, "Thanks," and she said, "You're welcome."

See, Nicole is not mean.

Sometimes? I guess it's hard to see fans when your nose is so far up in the air

Hey now.

She does spend a lot of time with her fans signing autographs.

She's just moody sometimes.
