Report 2

Hi there! Ok, first i've to say it has been not especially a "good day".
It has been raining all day and players could not practice in RG but somewhere else on indoor. So most of them were a little bit bored, and killed the time by going to the Player's desk or to the restaurant. So nothing special, but happy to have my pass.
But i can tell you who i saw today, about those i remember and that i recognized: Jenny Hopkins (nice girl ), Mirjana Lucic , Gala Leon Garcia, Tatiana Pereybyinis, Mashona Washington, Elena Baltacha, like yesterday Daja, Jana Kandarr (absolutely gorgeous ), and more surprising, Sugiyama's coach, but not her. I've planned to interview Mirjana tomorrow, i hope she'll have time enough . Maybe Gala.
About the mens corner, i interviewed Richie Gasquet, who is as usual very kind, talked a little with Jules Boutter, and saw again Paradorn with father Chenachai, Prinosil, Volandri, and some others.

Tomorrow, i'll have more interestings things to tell ya as the qualies are supposed to begin tomorrow (male)... if it's not raining in Paris

Regarding Sugiyama's coach, do you mean her mother?

No, it wasn't. That' the man who is travelling with her, unfortunately don't remember his name. He's Sugiyama's coach, because Ai's mother don't travel through the year.

She seemed to be fit enough, but not the best as she could be i think. I'll see it during practices.

I wonder if it's the same guy whom Ai was with in a photo taken at Berlin?

I think his name is Masahide Sakamoto.

I think that man is not her coach, but her hitting partner from her tennis academy in Japan? I remember the commentators saying that in her match with Kim at Scottsdale....but maybe I'm thinking of someone else...

Good to hear the players were nice. If you see Aniko tell her the guy who gave her the elephant says hi.
