Okay im not gonna report on matches coz most other people ave done that. Just weird/funny things that happened.
OMG Tennis attracts some major. There was this one guy in particular who was freekin scary, the kind of guy who if you saw him coming down the road youd cross to the other side. I would describe him, but he might be one of you lot
Anyway I was sitting next to Sonya Jeysaleen and this guy who I dont thin is her coach, but travles with the Americans and everyone seems to know him. We kinda got chatting a bit and I was juts asking her why she wasnt playing singles, and then I pretended not to know she'd been injured as she liked talking about it. I tyalked about ehr doubles qualifying macth, she smacked dhenin in teh back with a ball by mistake, it as so funny. So we laughed about that. She asked me where I was from as I didnt sound like everyone else here so I said Edinburgh and she said "cool". She's been there a couple of times and loves it. I said Im going to uni in September and can't wait to get away. So I explained why I was here, she's heard about gbtennisgirls but hasnt been to the site, but she thinks its a great idea.
So anyway, this freak i was talking about is hovering about and Sonya goes "why does this sport attract so many freaks? I mean c'mon, he's just creeping everyone out" I said I'd never really noticed it before, mainly coz the other events im involved with are challengers which no1 goes to watch (she found that funny). So this guy had come on his own bt was just randomnly talking to people, but they didnt want to talk to him. THey just wanted to watch the tennis and he'd be saying all these facts about this play, there scores and stuff, and Sonya said the funniest thing, she went "Christ! I dont even know who I beat last week, let alone the scores, and this guy knows every result in history. Thats just wrong, man." So we were just chatting about stuff, and she was being all technical as to why Lindsay-Lee was getting beat, and i just nodded and went "oh right" coz i dont understand technical shit.
So anyway the guy, who asks for an autograph and says soemthing to the player, and Sonya mimicks him - it was hilarious. Then that player came oevr and looked at Sonya and me and we just laughed. Me like Sonya.
Keith Woolridge was running around like a headless chicken coz of bally and Anne's injuries.
Chatted to Marlene Weingartner in an internet cafe, she insitgated the conversation coz I was pretty much the only person cheering her on against Janet Lee.
Spotted Sequera and Snyder going in MacDonalds. I was behind them in teh queue and all i can say is what PIES!! God knows how Milagros is that tiny if she was gonna eat all that she ordered.
Chatted a bit to Lucie, she's feeling good. She said that no matter what she will win a match at Wimbledon this year, seh doesnt care who she plays, on what court and if she is 60 50 40-0 up, or 60 50 40-0 down she wont loose. She's added a ton of power since i last saw her, her serve is now a weapon, not a liability.
First couple of days were amusing as it was obvious who cant play on grass to save her life.
Vento looks like a mouse, but she's nice though.
Widjaja is a BIG girl.
Linday-Lee Waters remined me of Linzi Reilly, only infinately better.
Maria is hubba-hubba, I even got a smile
Maybe she liked red-haeded scots.
Dozens of policeman arrived 'on duty' whenever Anna went to practise before she pulled out. I saw her crying in clubhouse, not nice. I never liked her but i felt so sorry for her, I smiled and she smiled back, but she looked like she wanted to go jump off a bridge.
EGGY WOT DO YOU LOOK LIKE?! Can't believe i was there all week and never met the meistro himself. Were lots of people I thought were you, but then i figured, no it cant be you, he has an Australian accent. Or no that can't be you, that's a woman.
