Last year when Amanda and Anna played in Stellenbosch I met a woman, Jill, there. When I stood outside Court 2 after Seles' first round game (beat Bes 6-0 6-0) (wanted Seles to sign my flag, which she did) I saw Jill again!! It was wonderful. Any way, she was telling me that she had seen Amanda twice earlier, and although Lori McNeil (Amanda's coach) was handing out autographs, Amanda wasn't signing any. So after Amanda's match (her match started about the time Seles finished) I approached Amanda for an autograph (rather cautiously) and I was pleasantly surprised that she actually agreed to sign my SA flag. So yea, it does happen that players are so focused on a match coming up, that they just do not want to be interrupted. The same happened with Mary Pierce... I was shouting and yelling my heart out for her to come and sign my flag.... she ignored me flat. Later I found out she lost her singles match, having led a set and a break. A couple of days I overheard someone saying how friendly Mary had been... there were a lot of people who wanted to have her autographed... and she gave it to all of them.
