Hey folks,

I'll be at Eastbourne, Wimbledon, Carlsbad (Acura Classic) and
possibly Carson (JP Morgan Chase Open) over the next few months.

One thing I've done for other players is to collect messages from
their fans, and then deliver the messages to the player. Most players
seem very touched by this.

I talked to Meeek, and she thought it was a good idea, or at least
a good enough idea to float to all of you.

So: if you are interested in posting your messages, or sending
them to me or Meeek, if I have the good fortune to see Ms.
Safina, I will deliver them. If someone wants an anonymous way
to send messages to me, let me know and I'll figure something out.

If this sounds like a good idea, I'll then set up a deadline for
messages for Wimbledon.

Is it okay if my message is in Russian?

Yep, as long as my printer can handle it. (Which it should be able
to do.)

If you want it public, you can post here. You can
pm me or Meeek (though Meeek will probably then just
forward them to me, so...) Or pm me for an email address.

I leave for the UK on June 20th, so the deadline for the
messages for Wimby will be June 19th. When I've done
this before, I set a page limit (one page or fewer.) However,
people are usually too shy to write, or don't know what to say,
so if you have enough to fill a few pages, please feel free to do
so!

pienso que ella habla espanol, porque cuando ella era nina ella vivia en espana para practicar tenis en Valencia. Lo siento porque mi espanol no es bueno.

Here is mine:

Привет Динара!

Поздравляю Вас с вашим успехом в этом году и я желаю Вам больше успехов в будущем. Я изучаю Русский язык и литературу и я думаю, что вы очень хорошая теннисистка. Вы игралы удивительно на Кубоке Федерации в этом году и в прошлом году.
Я надаюсь, что вы будете продолжать в Канаде в будущем.
Удачи Вас в Уимблдоне!

Does anyone knows if she has a nick name, or how other people usually call her? I like "Dina" as a nick name.

Thanks folks! I've printed out all the messages, and will put them
in an envelope for Ms. Safina. Now I just need to make sure I
find her at Wimbledon. (Wish me luck! If I fail, I can give them to
her if she is at the Acura Classic, but I really hope I find her at
Wimbledon.)

I may have missed my best opportunity to give the message to Dinara
at Wimbledon. She gave an autograph session, and I missed it! (Ahhhhhh....)
Actually, I was there for the last 5 minutes, but the security guy wouldn't
let me into the queue (only a certain number of people got in, I think.)

I'll try again tomorrow, but if I can't find her, I will give them to her at the
Acura Classic (if all goes well and she stays healthy.) I was hoping to
see what the order of play is for Wednesday, but they've only got the
courts 1, 2 and centre listed so far. So if she plays tomorrow, there is
a chance I may be able to see her. (If not, that's the end for me, since
Wednesday is my last day at Wimbledon.)

Success! After Dinara's amazing match (oh, I yelled so much!), I was able
to give her the messages. It was an amazing way for my Wimbledon visit
to end. Ahhh....

Thank you all for posting the messages. I'm sure she was really
happy to get them.
