Have you ever embarrassed yourself in front of a player?

I just saw this on MTF, the guy in the opening post said he stole it from here (sometime in 2004)... I can't find the thread to bump so here's a new one.

So, have you?

Women's tennis sucks.

Re: Have you ever embarrassed yourself in front of a player?

Yes
Vivi Pascual was practicing in something that resembled a bra, so I took a picture of it because I found it rather funny. But as I was snapping the picture, she looked right at me and looked so bizarre I was really embarassed.
I remember back in 2005 Mike Bryan (or Bob, I don't know) looked at me weird; mostly because I was looking at him weird, because I was too shy to go up to him and ask him for an autograph (I'd been watching them practice)
Mikhail Youzhny also looked at me weird because I'd watched him practice for an hour and some minutes (so hot ) but I was the only one there the entire time. I didn't have the guts to go up to him and ask for an autograph either, I'd probably have melted on the spot
I loooked at Jelena Jankovic a really long time when she was on a cart after her match. She had such a good-looking face - smooth, almost like a porcelain doll - that I had to look. She must've found me bizarre >_>
When I was watching Ai play Svetlana, and she had two set points - I yelled out "Come on, Ai, you've got another chance!" after she missed the first one. She didn't react, but her camp did I was the only one in her favor!

That's basically it

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.

Re: Have you ever embarrassed yourself in front of a player?

The first time I saw Lindsay Davenport in person was when she was walking to a practice court at Wimbledon's Aorangi park... she walked right passed me with a pen and auto book in my hand! I tried to say something to get her attention but nothing came out of my mouth. My body just froze on the spot until security guards pushed me out of the way I had a mini-seizure or something.

In Eastbourne we were walking around the seafront around 10pm and we saw Tammy T walking from her hotel - I got a bit excited and shouted out really loudly "IT'S TAMMY TANASUGARN!!!!" She blushed and looked really uncomfortable . Then when we were walking back she was walking into her hotel too , when she saw me she quickly looked away and sped up into the reception whispering to her coach.

We were following Kim Clijsters from Aorangi park to the millennium building this year (@ Wimbledon again). I had my camera out all ready and since it was quiet I shouted on/asked Kim if she would SMILE... so she like turned around for half a second, smiled and was like "Erm, who the fuck are you leave me alone ". It was embarrassing, I don't even like her! Thanks, Kim.

hahahhaha. So Kim isn't the angel everyone thinks she is.

I haven't met any players, but I can imagine I'd be a bumbling idiot. I'm like that around normal people anyway.

Re: Have you ever embarrassed yourself in front of a player?

At Eastbourne I was watching Jamea Jackson practice when this fat yah woman walked passed me and shouted out loud in front of everyone to her husband - "LOOK! IT'S A WILLIAMS SISTER!" . Her husband said something in her ear that was probably along the lines of: "no it's not you dumb bitch, it's Jamea Jackson"... her face was PRICELESS.

Unfortunately, Kim really is that nice. I think I caught her at a bad time that day - she was being all lovey-dovey with hubby. She let me keep a practice ball she hit out of court at Eastbourne.

That's not very nice!

I don't ask for autographs, I just take pics (I don't ask to take them either )

Oh, wait. Kim didn't actually say that. Her expression was more than enough for me to get the message.

Re: Have you ever embarrassed yourself in front of a player?

My friend and I were at the Australian Open, and he told me that her and I were "too tall for women". Who should walk by then but Lindsay herself. She heard it all.
