Davenport Practicing

As a note, after about 5 PM, the only women's match I saw was Sharapova. Once I arrived to them to wait for Sharapova, I stayed at the Armstrong and Grandstand courts and did not leave them after 5 PM. So I missed all the outside court action in the latter part of the day. It was worth it though - I saw Tursanov beat Kuerten. Tursanov is amazing.

Anyway, after walking through the grounds at around 10:30 AM, I made it to the back at the practice courts and Davenport was practicing. Zvonareva was practicing on the court next to hers. Actually, at the time, Vera was just running around the court. After her practice, I ran to the exit to see if Davenport would come sign autographs. After enough people screamed for her, she came over and signed a bunch of autographs.

After watching Davenport, I decided to go through the courts once before heading to the main courts for the Henin match and the Dokic match. By the way, I was with a friend of mine and he was very good about joining me in running all over the place.

Players were walking to courts at this time and you can see this as a few of the players walked by me. Yulia Beygelzimer and Maria Sanchez Lorenzo as well as Mary Pierce. You can see Gehrlein in the back of the picture with Pierce.

I think Yulia was very excited to have qualified and gave me a wonderful smile when I took the picture.

Through the grounds

I continued moving along. As you can see, there were a lot of people watching the Pierce match.

Some more players. I also added a Zvonareva pic. I watched her practice through the fence. Left this out earlier.

These were the last of the women I saw playing before I headed over to watch Henin and Dokic play.

Dokic

I didn't bother taking pictures of the Henin match since I was so high up in the stadium. I did, however, take pictures of the Dokic match. There is a great overhang in the Grandstand Court which essentially allows you to take overhead pictures of matches. You can see this view in two of the Dokic pictures. Dokic played decently. She doesn't seem to be in the same class as the top 10 players though.

Safina Practicing

After watching Henin and Dokic, I made my way back to the outside courts to watch Myskina. On the way, I caught Safina practicing. This was only a few hours before she would play.
