Talking my wimby experience....2004 from post # 186

ok u have to bare with me! i just had the best day of my life!!!!! so much happened i dont know where to start!!! but imma try to keep it as little as possible

Jenn-Jenn

ok after getting up so early to travel to SW19, i was a lil impatient to get into the grounds. of course, we had to wait for years. about 2 hrs into my waiting, guess who should walk past me but Ms Capriati herself!!!! shes sooooooooo pretty!!!!! even more so in real life than on tv i said "Jen can i have a picture?" and she said "im really sorry but ive gotta be somewhere"....it was so cool tho cos she looked me straight in the eye and said it so nice and with such a real smile i think i love her even more now Go Jennifer and win tomorrow

hitting the practice courts

nothing REAL interesting here, saw Paradorn practicing with Rainer, saw Mario Ancic (hes so cute) couldnt really get round to see anybody else

Dementieva...
i love Alyona so much! and i couldnt believe it when i saw her coming towards me. shes much prettier in real life too! (not sure if thats possible) i asked her for her autograph and she gave it to me but didnt give anybody else one!! tehehehehe that was too cool. then in quick succession i got Rainer's and Mikhail's a/gs too! i was on a high....

first match....
court two of course! Paradorn vs Hrbaty....great match. Paradorn is so cute!!! im in love. everyone was cheering for him, which was great. and the acknowledgement at the end was classy but i was talking to people around me, and they had actually travelled from all around to see the same person that day i did......

Wimbledon loves Venus loves Wimbledon loves Venus....

yes they were here for the Queen in the standing area! but not before the craziest thing happened!!!! i met her dadddy! i was on court 2 and i saw him walking below...i grabbed some stuff and sprinted past ppl to him. Richard is sooooo nice!!!! i went up to him and asked him to sign my "Venus/Serena book". he shook my hand dammit!!! and i was talking to him for like 5 minutes! he gave me a hug and i had my pic taken with him he also said "you really went all out on this" in re. to my book, and offered to give me a film of shots he was taking of Venus if i go back tomorrow! im there! and hes not the idiot people think he is...this American lady was bringing up the Henin issue again, and he just ignored her. i dont think he wanted to talk about it. which is cool....totally

but back to Venus. OMG she has so much support in London and if anybody heard the yells of crap such as "GO VENUS!" "YEA BABY!" "WORK IT VENUS!!" "BACK TO THE TOP VENUS!" yea i was partly responsible the standing area of court two was cracking up at me and my friend. tried to get her auto on the way out, but girlfriend walks fast plus, she had loadsa security guards around her cos they think her and Serena are being stalked (no, not by me)

Hew do they think they are?

from court 2 i could hear centre, and i must say im rather disguisted how they treated the defending champ (thought they had more class than the French/Belgian crowd)...poor bloke feel really sorry for him. the roar when he lost was heartbreaking.....and my heart goes out to him.

Jan-Mike Fan-mill

OMG hes so much hotter in person! i got to like 6 ft away from him! hes so fit. watched that match for a while then i left cos i wanted to see another fave of mine....my friend stayed and got his auto. the silly bitch said "OMG ur so much nicer than Andy Roddick!" (who had refused our requests ...for autos that is) and he burst out laughing

My favourite Pet

yes Nadya was the person i left the match for! small court, really intimate, and i was yelling "GO NADIA!" throughout! i suck. she musta thought "stfu!". Garbin is the funniest fucker! she was throwing fits on court and everything! really temperamental....really funny. Nadya hits her shots better in person (of course) and is really quite stunning. i walked round to the player's exit a few games before the end of the match, and who should i see watching her compatriot, but Nastya Myskina i walked over to her (she was just in the middle of ppl going un-noticed, i dont believe nobody knows her ) and said "Anastasia u are one of my favourite players," (we all have to lie sometimes) "please can i have ur auto?". she looked at me, smiled, and then gave it to me. she has braces???? . shes actually really pretty, and a lot shorter than i first thought....

back to Nadya....she won (of course ) and she gave me her auto *dead* imma keep this forever. i was jumping around all excited while half of the other ppl didnt even know which country she came from she ROCKS

Dani Hantoooooookova....

yes she is as skinny in real life watched the match vs Bartoli and she played really well but this jackass next to me was proclaiming to his friend how great she was, so i got fed up and started cheering for Bartoli real loud and obvious. hehehe he got stressed! i heard "fuck off" under his breath a few times i love riling ppl up when they get on my nerves....

Dani has a certain elegance about her though...ppl say she struts, but i think she carries herself real well.....

thats the end of my account tho i took pictures of like all the players saw loads of them on court Dominikovic is another one who made me laugh with her temper! Vera thrashed that ass

hope u enjoyed it! i sure did

OMG i was saying to my friend i hope she says something about the crowd in her interview....and she did!!

Q. How would you characterize your reception today by the fans? Was it any different from other years you've played here?

VENUS WILLIAMS: It was real nice. They were very nice. I noticed, at least in the first game, they clapped on my nice shots and they clapped on her nice shots. That's always nice. Really classy crowd today.


its cos we love u so much baby

ps Venus' dress....well no one would shutup about it

Sounds like you had a great day but Karlovic had just caused possibly the biggest ever Wimbledon upset so I think the crowd's reaction was understandable. They had witnessed a bit of history and a great performance.

Great report! Sound like you had fun. Richard is really friendly at the US Open he always walks around and is willing to pose with anyone.

Also I agree with you SJW about Venus's fans in London, thats why I thought it was wrong for people to complain about her being on Court 2, because she probably got a better reception from the crowd out there after she won than she would on Centre. The crowds on 2,3 etc. are so appreciative of seeing the big names on the courts they can afford, they show their appreciation more and louder

Q. Security is a bit higher this year than it has been in the past. Do you have any particular concerns, stalkers, any other issues?

VENUS WILLIAMS: No. She said I don't have to answer that.

MODERATOR: Tennis questions.


So there really is a stalker.


Thanks for the report.
