Notes from Indian Wells (pics too) - complete

I'm at Indian Wells.... there is an Internet Cafe here... I'll write a few notes during my days here at the tournament.

Monday
Big Day of qualies - 5matches each on 5 courts. And a lot of players (men and women) practicing. So there is a lot of activity. Men's qualies don't start til tomorrow.

So far I saw practicing: Mauresmo, Sharapova with Kirilinko, Brenda (!!), Li Na with Zheng Jie, Keothavong. Plenty of others I don't recognize.

I got to say hi and good luck to Akgul (!!!) and Elena V.

Only matches I've seen part of is Castano vs. Brodsky. Brodsky is a local player. Last I checked, it was 1 set each, with Castano up a break in the third.

Very hot here, but desert hot, not like hot in Ohio.

I saw the draw ceremony....

The entire area here is really beautiful, but also really developed. Hoping to skip tennis one or two days and get out to see the country around here.

All for now...

Re: Notes from Indian Wells

I really wish I was there in the desert watching the tennis. It's cold and rainy here.

Thanks for sharing your experiences so far though. Hope you get to meet Lindsay some time.

Re: Notes from Indian Wells

Are you going to watch other matches?

If yes please make a short report about Sesil's match if you have the intention to follow it live.

Re: Notes from Indian Wells

Thanks drake,

I really wish I was there too. This is my first year not going, since I relocated to the east cost. I always felt IW was the best tournament for fans, you can get so up close and personal with the players. I hope you brought a jacket cuz the night sessions can get down right cold and windy.

Be sure to keep us posted and up to date with all the latest happs...
