My Indian Wells Experience! (Vid of Bartoli & Novotna Coaching)

Not gonna go into too much detail since I'm sunburnt and by head is throbbing right now...
So I went with a group from school, but I ditched them since all they wanted to see was ATP matches...and so I was alone the whole time (and I didn't mind one bit, I actually preferred it).

Just gotta say, everyone was skinnier, taller, and prettier in person...

Here are just a few pictures (not special), in the order I saw them:

Zvonareva:


Kuzzy practicing with Morita:




First actual womens match of the day,
Soler Espinosa:


Roberta Vinci, her slice back hand is so much more orgasmic in real life.


Caught a little Schiavone:


Sania practicing A LOT of serves... A LOT of Indian fans watching on the side, some of which are really annoying.


Klara jumproping behind me, lol


Casey practiced with Klepac mostly focusing on net approaches and transition game:


Jay-Z probably THE HARDEST worker out there today. About 200 balls: practiced taking high bounces extremely early and creating short angles.


Julia and Lisicki, hit the fuck out of the ball...but you guys already know that.


Petra, kinda boring. All I gotta say is she is her legs are super skinny in real life.


Oh hai Vania and ALG: worked on doubles returns and reacting to lobs over your partner.






Beth, half-assed doubles match so I left...

Re: My Indian Wells Experience!

Na, kind of the same practice as Jie... I left but my friends told me later that she started crying, possibly about hurting her wrist. Don't know how accurate that is though..


Aravane. Came to the court to see her and her coach/hitting partner arguing about something in French. Her body language for the 3 minutes I stayed was really depressing, she did not want to be out there, especially with that guy. Wasn't hitting too well either, and was winded after every rally.


Domi practicing with Brianti (who looks even more like Justine in real life ) nothing significant..




Kiri, last match for me basically




Begu did good and hung in there well..


I have a few videos which I will probably never upload because I don't feel like it...

Re: My Indian Wells Experience!

Anything particularly interesting about Petra's boringness?

Re: My Indian Wells Experience!

Random stuff:
Was watching Kiri and turned around Galina freakin startled me because she was so in-my-face. Watched a while longer, turn to my right, "WTF Paola Suarez!!!!111" accompanied by her man...

A lot of perverts in the Kiri match, it was kinda embarrassing actually.

Don't recall ever watching a Rogowska match, but saw her practice today: ground strokes suck.

Akgul practicing with Iroda Tulyaganova- guessing she is a coach now?

Aranxta Parra-Santonja is surprisingly really hot.

Pironkova was hitting really well.

Madison Keys hitting with Jamie Hampton. Jamie has a lot of potential- her strokes are just They had a really long practice session.

Caro match was boring as shit, so I left 4 points in...

It was night, and I randomly see Su-Wei standing alone in the middle of the grass field with headphones in.

Pennetta does so many running exercises.

Saw more nothing worth mentioning.

As weird as this may sound, she doesn't look as tacky in real life.
