One of the highlights of me visiting US Open this year was observing one of Nastya's fans over there.
That was a Russian guy with Russian flag, who was shouting things in Russian all the time. When she would miss he would shout:"Ничего, всё нормально" ( It's nothing, everything is OK ), if she would make a shot, he would shout :"Красавица!" ( "You are a beauty" ). The best one came when Nastya reached a breakpoint against MASL, when he shouted : "Давай, души её" ( "Com'n, strangle her" ). At the end he asked someone around to take a pic of him and Nastya, refusing to concede that Nastya would not go all the way to opposite side of the court just to see him. But when he realised , that Nastya would only sign autographs on player's side, without any hesitation he jumped on court ( it was on Grandstand ) and ran to Nastya, posed next to her, and the pics were taken. Of course, the next very second he was taken by security and we wouldn't see him again.
