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.
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...
