Re: The SS Dementieva, New Horizons

You're going to Osprey...

If you can, take pictures of no. 15, Valeria Savinykh, for me.....

You have an old list, BZS isn't playing.
Besides Val, I'd watch Minella, Rus, Rodionova and Tsurenko.

Re: The SS Dementieva, New Horizons

I actually called today to see when Mandy Minella was playing. Believe me I know who she is. Mandy has a bye today and she plays tommorow.
I don't have a digital camera so I'll have to describe what I saw in each one.
Why don't you fly here? We have the top rated beach in the U.S.(Siesta beach).
Lots of spring breakers here too.

Re: The SS Dementieva, New Horizons

No, maybe in a couple of years when I'm retired. I've got a feeling I'll better fit in by then...

Re: The SS Dementieva, New Horizons

Anyway, enjoy the tournamnet tomorrow!
It's a very nice players list, I've been to WTA tournaments with a lesser draw.

Not everyone down here is retired. We do have a few live ones around here.
BTW is the Captain still alive?

Re: The SS Dementieva, New Horizons

The 30-something crowd is doing okay in Miami this year,but I reckon that our somewhat-younger BGO is still at peace with her decision

Congrats on Number Three, Kim! We need more of you in this world

Re: The SS Dementieva, New Horizons

Just got gack from my first tournament and it felt like I was in the land of the giants.
Many of these girls are quite tall and big(I'm 6 feet tall).
Many Minella posed for me after her pre match hit plus I got several other pictures of her, then she goes out and loses her match in two long sets.
She was by far the prettiest girl there, tall, slim and a real looker.
Also watched Alize Cornet whip Oudin who looks like she is on steroids.
The hardest hitter by far was CoCo Vanderweghe. She kinda resembles a NFL football player. I wish Mathilde Johansson had beed there. It was quite hot so I got to appreciate the kind of shape these girls are in.
This tournament is being held at a very exclusive country club here in Sarasota county.

Sorry I don't have a digital camera. I have a camera that takes film, the kind you read about in your history books.

Well,thanks,I guess,but that's almost a backhanded compliment....I don't think that Elena would be too flattered if I told her that she was prettier than SK
