Yeah ive met all my faves!

Monica - Adidas. Just asked for her autograph, thanked her and she said 'your welcome'. I was frozen in awe of thos lady to say anything else.

Jelena - she signed my autograph after her loss to ASV at Adidas 2000. She was nice and signed more than ASV did i think esp. seeing she was playing in her local tourney.

Myskina - chatted with her at Olympics after she won her first round over Danilidou. I didnt think much of Eleni at that time, but Nastya was a star in the making. I told her i was 'amazed' at her backhand. She seemed really shy, but we still talked for a while and i took a pic with her. A few days later she called Elena.D over and introduced her to me. sweet

Evie - i said 'better luck next time' to her at the end of the fed cup in the 'gong'. I didnt say much else cos i had been watching the tennis with her sister Daniella a fair bit and was told Evie was upset...shows how much she cared andim sure it affected her results this season. However its GREAT that Evie is playing very well again in the ITF events in Aus !!!!!!!!! go evie

Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!

Well anabel I not only had dinner with mine but took her home too.

In all seriousness I have spoken to loads of players but mainly just 'well played' bad luck' etc....but Ive only ever chatted to a select few and the one that stands out happens to be one of my two biggest faves, Eleni Daniilidou. A gracious, humble person with a killer smile.
