Anita's Report of Melbourne Park's preparation for the AO

I was at M&OP this morning to pick up my accreditation pass so I could have access to the venues and stuff since Im working there next week. Anyway while I was walking around with these 2 irish(?) [might've been dutch lol, i couldnt really distinguish their accents] and I saw Bernard Tomic! I almost asked him where we were meant to go to collect our passes, haha. I stared at him strangely coz i thought he looked familar but wasnt 100% sure, he didnt have his tennis gear with him, just walking across the bridge from Rod Laver and he looked back at me weirdly. I would've asked for an autograph and pic too, but the whole 'cant go up to high-profile ppl and ask for a pic and autograph while ur getting paid and working and wearing our uniform...blah blah blah' rule.

Anyway I saw a few more players too. I thought I saw JJ practicing when I was walking across the bridge, but I wasnt sure coz it were covered. But had second thoughts that it wasnt her since the woman that i saw was wearing a white sports bra/crop top and turquoise (short?) shorts, she was strectching/bending forward so I couldnt see her face properly.

Its in complete lockdown, security is thorough, i got warned/scowled at for being in some places i wasnt allowed. the ONLY reason that happened is coz there was someone else face on my pass. apparently tennis australia had mucked up

Everything seems to be going nicely, i thought i saw the spiegeltent but i wasnt sure. I might go to the qualies on thursday and saturday. oh i also have a slight chance of working at the AO players party. not sure yet, but fingers crossed

HANTUCHOVA // IVANOVIC // DELLACQUA // KIRILENKO // SAFINA // AZARENKA // ZVONAREVA
and more!

Re: Anita's Report of Melbourne Park's preparation for the AO

I cant delve into where and when the location of the players party is as its soo close to it. BUT my chances of working there are about 50/50 now!
