Fans Meet Mary
I strongly feel and believe that this thread & site gathers one of the most dedicated and loyal fans of Mary Pierce. Personally, Mary is my favorite and I have really been devastated by the lack of coverage she has received ever since slipping down in the rankings. There is very little and weak communication with Mary and her fans. I wonder, then, can everyone share their experiences meeting Mary and what you suggest we do about this? I know Mary is an avid user of email and internet. I do not know her email or personal mailing address of course but I am sure we contact the WTA Tour or something of the sort and try polishing a letter and invite her to use some sort of venue to update us monthly on her progress. It will take some time but I am sure we have great people to go on and do this.
I want to ask, who has met Mary and how? I did, in the 2000 US Open when I was 17 years old. I was in New York, and made her sign 8 different things. I am quite sure I freaked her out given that I am a male and was QUITE EXCITED to meet her. But, for me, it was an special moment in life. One that I remember fondly.
I am a fan of Venus Williams as well. And well, Venus sends us a recurring newsletter every month. It is a brief email outlining her interests, etc. Other players (Clijsters in particular) update their status on their website. Mary does not even have one. I feel like I do not know Mary and I think that would be a fantastic turn to her career now: to have an outlet for her fans. Mark, can perhaps post these newsletters in his website, who knows?
If you are interested, let's keep posting, start emailing journalists and others who can help us get in touch with Mary. Let's be hopeful!
