Today I decided to go to the Courts where I was told(by Charlda) where the players would be practicing so I drove my bike down there as it`s not to far from where I`m staying. The tennis club is at the bottom of this huge hill and so as I`m riding my bike down I see a player in the parking lot doing her warm up excersises. As I get up to the club and ride by her I realise it is none other than Vera Zvonareva. I thought it was so cool the first player I see is Vera especially considering I picked her to win the Tournament like 2 months ago. Then I go into the club where I immediately see Marie-Eve Pelletier walk by and she kind of stares at me like who is he because she has so me so many times this year. There are two courts there for the players to practice and they are the 2 closet to the windows plus there is a balcony to watch. The first player I see on the courts in Sofia Arvidsson, she is practicing with Klepac ,and Sofia is playing incredible, hitting the ball so hard and clean. She could really be a threat again this year. She was killing Klepac. Klepac even had to laugh a few times. On the court beside them there was Jidkova playing with Erakovic. Jidkova didn`t look to impressive, Marina definately stronger. Then those 2 courts emptied and Marie-Eve went on with Alves and looked quite good. It was the first time I have seen Alves and she was pretty cool, tall skinny girl with a left handed game. Beside them was Vera and her hitting partner. Vera was hitting amazing. I stayed for a while and as I was leaving I saw Tetrault and Huet with their parents. Was a nice day down there!
The club is in Quebec City and yes I just walked right in. I almost didn`t recognise Vera when I drove by on the bike. It`s quite remarkable how different players look in person. Vera is very beautiful and very slender! She also wasn`t wearing a hat I wasn`t convinced until I saw her Under Armour clothing
Just went to the club again!! Guess who I saw! Maureen Drake!!! She was practicing with Gingras. Also I saw Foretz, Tetrault, and Shulaeva practicing together, while Craybas, Fichman, and Bachmann were waiting to practice. I also saw Castano was scheduled to practice later so she is there officially.
