Practice pics would turn out much nicer so fingers crossed

Unfortunately the tournament is unwilling to release the practice schedule so it's a matter of being there at the right time. For some reason Sharapova's always there when I check...I think that's faith mocking me...

Anyways, I have two little Caro-related anecdotes to share: I had the chance to go backstage at the tournament today (not going to elaborate on how that happened ) and as I was standing around, Caro and the golfer walked in (he IS tiny ). I didn't have the courage to get the camera out though as I didn't want to be that creepy there were lots of securities around and they probably would have kicked my ass

Ran into her on site another time as well, she's always friendly with everyone, not too many people are bugging her (you should see the frenzy that breaks loose when Sharapova turns's insane, old geezers behave like teenagers...).

Also, yesterday I was eavesdropping on a conversation between two Adidas suits (they sounded like higher ups from the tennis department.) It was interesting, they were talking about the Stella collection and the Adidas players etc.. Caro was mentioned too and damn, these guys are not happy with where she's heading. "Catastrophic" was one of the words used... apparently Adidas pretty much expects her to make the YEC this year...

Anyways, that's it from me, hopefully I'll have pics soon...I haven't forgotten about you guys
Darn the luck. I am the forums go-to creepy guy but here I am thousands of miles away!

I can completely understand the use of the word "catastrophic." Their expectations were probably unrealistic but surely they didn't think that she would fall as far as she did so quickly. At the start of 2012 she was number one. By the middle of the year she was pretty much a non-contender, at least at the "big" events.

Here's a tip. If you want to upstage the old geezer/teenager crowd try throwing your underpants at Maria.
