Report 6 !!!

Hi there!
I begin as usual by my weather points: bad weather It was raining until 10 AM, then, play could take place until 3PM. After that, no more practices, so that's why i left more early today.
I watched Daniela Hantuchova and Jenny practicing on the Suzanne Lenglen, they were ending a set. (I believe Jenny won) Jenny is the girl who impressed me the most. Daniela is still a little bit struggling to find her game, but it sounds better than when i saw on matches that i watched recently. Jenny is playing really well, powerful strokes. Lindsay Davenport practiced with Ai, and did a lots of volley, agressive. Ai seems well too, but the power's difference is visible ( well, i forgot Ai has beaten Lindsay on hard in Scottsdale). Unfortunately, i didn't have time enough to see Justine or Amelie's practice as it was on the same time than Monica. But i saw them, took pics with hers . All i can say is that they're really relaxed, especially Justine who was laughing a lot with her coach. About Monica, i've some good news. She's feeling better than yesterday. I didn't talk too much to her (didn't want to embarrasme). Just said "hi" and she answered me "Hey, good to see you ". Always a strange feeling to hear that from Monica Seles. Well, she practiced from 1.30PM to 3PM. Played a set's practice with her sparring partner, moved better than yesterday Her serve wasn't so good, a little bit struggled again with it. She asked a few times her Sparring partner what did he think about it. Backhand was good, forehand wasn't totally on the right timing at the beginning, but it was much better at the end. I noticed she's trying to don't have too much long rallies, trying to go to the net and finish the point as early as possible. But she has to be careful, because today, she maybe had too much precipation. But she often had the capacity to finish the points with 2 or 3 shots. The real good point is her return of serve: really well, good timing on it. That's what i can say after her practice.
Williams are in here, but cancelled their practice due to rain, and were supposed to play tonight, but it is still raining in Paris. So left before to see them.
Then apart that, i saw Magdalena (his fan must be happy to know it ) and she seems ok. Nothing special. Saw too on player's lounge Lena Bovina (seems cool), Gagliardi, Babsi, Vivi, Pistolesi, Kuznetsova, Molik, Serna and some more that i didn't see before that day. I talked with Petra today, thanked her about Rita's picture . She's really nice. BTW, took pics with Paola Suarez and Myskina, and they're both really kind, Paola just has this litle voice which is so cute . Nastya is great too, but is still hesitating with her English.
I wanted to see Jelena Dokic, but was scheduled to play during a time in which it was raining. So i'll see later for reports about her.
About men's corner, Juan Carlos is in here Was happy to talk a few mn with him and Antonio (coach). Practiced on Suzanne at 10.30AM. Thanks to Juri ( ), i met Srichaphan's family and they're really nice Philippoussis and and Hewitt practiced together today on Central. Didn't watch a lots about it. Gambill practiced this morning too ( interviewed him ealier on the morning, is not really full of confidence, and said that his main goal was Wimbledon.) Corretja and Costa practiced between us, as Carlos (Moya) and Felix Mantilla did it. BTW, funny scene with Carlos: saw Srichaphan's family who was taken pictures with him near of the players' restaurant Didn't have time to talk a lots with him today, just asked ourselves how we were. Agassi cancelled his practice's session. He's supposed to play on the second match on Central during Benny Berthet's day tomorrow with Sargis Sargsian. Guga played with Coria. Tipsarevic lost unfortunately, what a pity . I'm giving "the hello" to Katya and Vera to help them to overwhelm their disappointment ( ).
OK, here was the essential of my day. Tomorrow, no reports as it is my "day off". Very tired, and it is planned to be raining a lots tomorrow. Moreover, a lots of circulation's difficulties. A lots of trains or even metro will be cancelled. But I'm going back in the stadium on Monday.
Stay tuned
