Finally!! The Nastya Sunday US Open Practice Report

just came back from the grounds (and after 3 days of running around the grounds my gas tank is at empty) and yes i did attend the nastya practice this afternoon..keep in mind i did not bring a camera and did not take notes so this is all from memory

Nastya practiced with daniela hantuchova (daniela looks ready for the us open) this afternoon....no air cast. she just had an ankle brace, and didnt seem to look at the ankle at all during practice so it looks like she will be able to play on it...her movement was good, baseline to baseline, did not notice any problems, her strokes were solid...only 2 times did she abuse the raquet by semi slamming it to the ground after a few serves were netted, and jens had to calm her down once after she started muttering under her breath, he smiled after nastya almost lost it on another occassion...all in all a pretty routine practice, nastya was smiling a lot on the changeovers, and in another funny moment jens was talking to her in her chair and nastya just reached out and used jens shirt sleeve as a towel to wipe her hands

jens also said hi to me during a changeover, and at the end of the practice pointed to nastya and asked me if i got my autograph, and i told him i did (i got it before practice started cause i wasn't talking my chances with the rain cutting practice short, but id didnt rain, only afew drops toward the end)

didn't get to talk to her because of the nature of the court but i did thank jens for helping me out with the practice times so i was able to sleep late and not get to the grounds until half hour before practice...he shook my hand and that was that, then i roamed the grounds and caught henin's practice (hers was cut 20 minutes short by rain) and later on saw vaidisova, and dulko hiting with kirilenko

in other words if you can get to the grounds the week before the open you should...its a great experience!!!!

two asperin and some sleep for me now

so glad you finally got to see her. and apparently ur great friends with jens now.
myskina and hantuchova practicing together sounds like heaven. next time you need to take a camera so we can all be even more jealous of your experience. hope you get to see her matches later this week. it's good that she's not ranked so high now because they'll put her on smaller courts and you'll get to be closer.

You're nearly a member of her family now

Seriously,you're so lucky to be able to speak so easily. If it was me, I would have been petrified in front of Jens and Nastya and the only words I could pronounce would be "abababa..."

I gotta add my few words here if the talk is about Cutie J.
Seems many people had a 'moments' with him, he's really nice for sure. I saw him two times last year, and he remembered me and was saying 'hi' every time I saw him. But unfortunately this year didn't saw Nastya on any tourney that's a shame
Anyways from what I saw many coaches are nice to people, one coach of famous ATp player, I won't say who asked my friend to dance. They generally are friendly.
Well waiting for more reports about Jens

Work hard, be yourself and have fun. - M.K.

I hope so. I desperately need a "holiday" as the tourney will be right after I will have delivered my Bachelor´s thesis and right before I´ll start with the masters studies. Besides, four friends of mine moved there to study, so...it´s a good chance. By now I have friends in every german city which features a ATP/WTA-tourney
