Talking I saw Kristie Boogert yesterday!

Hi everyone!

Yesterday I attended an opening at the Atlantic Hotel, The Hague (Kijkduin), The Netherlands. That's at the coast of the Netherlands, and every year there is a project with large balls being put in between the dunes, which at night give (coloured) light. This year, a group of sportsmen & -women painted a group of balls, among which one of them was Kristie Boogert! Her painted ball was one of the nicest! During the opening she gave a speech and told, unfortunately she had to quit her tennis career 3 years ago due to the same injury as Van Basten, but in her elbow. She was the only sports person there (all the others had to train), and I was the only tennis fan there! (since I didn't get much of a response when I told I was a huge tennis fan ) I was excited and got a warm feeling, seeing & being so close to a real pro tennis player (during off season and while missing tennis), which came as a total surprise!
You can go watch the ball Kristie Boogert painted at the boulevard.

I remember Boogert giving JHH such a tough match on court 2 at Wimby 01.

Loved watching Kristie play on grass. She looked incredibly natural on that surface. Too bad she wasn't a bigger star before she retired.

If you knew how to pronounce her name correctly, you wouldn't be making that joke.

It's like "Boh-gert", not Boo-gert, making it boogers...
