ok so i get there and had never been there before so me and my sister are kind of just walking around and exploring. Its about 930 and matches didnt start until 10. There are tons of people looking through the breaks in the trees that are blocking the practice courts, but they are all men playing and to be honest i couldnt recognize most. Saw monflis, rochus, clement. Most i didnt know at this point. So we go to leave and my sister walks into someone and i here the lady in her accent go very sorry, and I knew right away my sister just walked into Justine Henin. I was in shock ive only been to the us open and never been this close to a pro player before. Im not an autograph kind of person so it didnt try for one just kind of stared at her lol.
Right away i noticed that in this area outside of the practice courts players were stretching and jogging all over the place. Mauresmo was two feet away from me. Srebotnik was there and sorry to her fans but she looks freakishly thin in person. I know im a daniela fan, but i think srebotnik looks scary skinny, maybe because shes so tall but i was like yikes! Srebtonik was practing intense for hours. I was shocked at how hard she working on the practice courts with a match later in the day. Zvonareva was there warming up and joking around with her coach/trainer. The chinese team was all there except for na li. I didnt see her all day, she was never practicing with them or around which i thought was weird because the rest were there all day long together. Zheng, Yan, Sun and someone else, but im not sure who it was. They really are cute in person!! Bartoli came out and was talking to Mauresmo but i felt like amelie wanted to continue getting ready for her practice session.
I saw Vania King with her parents i think. Is she adopted? Because they were not asain. And im pretty sure they were her parents. Likhotseva came out and started practicing with Zvonareva. Didnt watch them much but neither loooked happy or said much during it. Craybas came out and was practicing with some guy. She was shrieking really loud and you heard it for like the next hour, even on the court where I was watching anna c. Schiavone was there, and I was astonshied at how much of man she looks like in person. Scary kind of, sorry to her fans, I was literally shocked.
Kuznetsova was fooling around with one of the Pilot Pen officials, i love this girls personality, she just seems like a really cool person, especially in person. So now its like 10 so i decided to go and watch anna c vs. voskoboeva, but the start was delayed so we headed over to stadium to watch myskina/santangelo.....
