Thanks for this QPF.
I think if you would have gone up to her or called out her name she would have ignored you.
I mentioned in my report about Eastbourne/Wimbledon that she looked rather fed up there and was not very approachable. I was very, very lucky to get a photo of her just as she came out of the players lounge and into the open air (I knew she was there so I was waiting by the door
), but previous to that I saw her walking along the premises and I went over to her and said "Hi Petra, I'm a big fan, can I have a photo and autograph please" and she just carried on walking as if she didn't hear me, which shocked me a bit to tell you the truth
She was by herself and wasn't going to practice, she was just going to the changing room. Anyway, she didn't ignore me the 2nd time - I think she just wanted to get rid of me
So it might have been best if you left her alone. Like you said, I think she's getting fed up of being recognised or she's just exhausted
. She's really not used to this - it's really only been what, 2 years that she's been in the limelight and it did come quite quickly didn't it?
BTW: Who's that hunk in the photo touching the Wimby Trophy?
