Did you talk to any of the players? I'm always too chicken.
Only a little bit--Michaella, Vera, Sam (who didn't seem herself--she usually likes to chat and joke), Nathalie (she's always so easy to talk to), Anabel. My husband chatted with Katarina, who is a favorite of his. I didn't even get to say but a word or two to Patty, and she kind of knows us now. I did talk a bit more with JJ, though. We sat right behind her during an early practice, and she was very friendly, then I talked a bit with her again when she had an autograph session and I went to photograph her.
My most intense encounter was with Julia Vakulenko. She had no support but me at one of her matches, and she started looking at me before she served. When she made an error, she would roll her eyes at me. When she hit a winner, she'd look at me and smile a bit. After the match, though, she was so upset, she barely said a word to me.
And I did have a nice chat with Juliana Fedak. We like Fedak's personality and we like to watch her play. I had a beautiful photo of her I wanted her to sign, and she was so pleased with it, she asked me to wait while she showed it to her coach.
