I saw the end of Vögele v Cavaday at Birmingham 2009
. Stefanie won 6-4 6-2 to reach her first WTA Tour quarter-final. I got some wonderful close-ups as she came off Court 1, and she was so sweet, too: she even said "thank you" as she passed me – apparently just because I stood aside to take my photos rather than block her path!
Stefanie was thus the second professional tennis-player ever to speak to me. Yaroslava Shvedova went on to win two Major Women's Doubles titles, so perhaps I shall bring good luck to Stefanie too...
