View Full Version : day 5 :)

Apr 30th, 2003, 07:53 PM

well, what a hot day today - and very sad one for polish tennis :sad: i am sure marta would have won the match yesterday, but today she didn't really find in to it :( and during the press conference she was right, that she beat herself.

bout the sako match i really cannot say anything cause i went down to the vip tournament, where jill, maryia, caroline, katalina, vanessa took part. well and guess who won? maryia k. with don't ask me who, cause i really have no idea who the vips were...

ok, when i arrived in the morning, i went to the centre court and saw denisa practising. then went to court number one, where i had the possibility to watch venus practising with two guys this time. maybe only one cannot handle venus ;) well, one certainly cannot...

then i went down to the practise courts, cause i knew that at 11:30 amelie was supposed to arrive and daniela half an hour later. and guess what? they did, i talked to amelie in french :) and asked her for a pic :) after her practise she hit some balls with 8 years old girl.

then little bit later dani arrived, and started to warm up :) well, she is soooooooooooooooooo thin. after her warm up i asked her for a pic as well :)

also on practise court jelena, her hitting partner and bernoldi :) little bit later eleni joined jelena on the court and they practised together :)

then i saw rossana stretching with her husband, asked her if i could make a pic of both stretching and both agreed. cool pic :) then we talked for a while :) i aske dher if she could imagine to play sopot this year adn she said she would prefer the american hardcourt season, but she wouldn't say no at the moment. then i aske dher bout where is her daughter: "sleeping," she answered with a big smile. then she also told me that she remembers me from hamburg :) rossana asked me, weher i am exactly fro and where i do live in warsaw etc. then she went to practise with caroline. well later in the afternoon her daughter arrived, and i took 2 pics of her...

marta was also there and seemed to be relaxed, she nearlly "killed" me when she threw a ball to eleni who was warming up with a football together with her coach. well but then she laughed and said: i knew i cannot throw it and said sorry.

i am so sad bout her first round loss :sad:...

i was also wathcing the first set of the eleni/francesca vs. arancha/olga match. then went down to centre court where myriam's match was about to start. it was the best match of the tournament so far, too bad myriam lost :sad: it was so close...

after this match i wentto the practise courts,and found caroline in the reception, ,she is so funny. everybody laughed bout her and she also laughed bout herself, when she tried to call a trainer. took a pic with her :)

then i met, myriam and talked together with some other guys to her, and she asked me if i would come today to the player's party, but i said i really don't know, maybe. so she answered: well but i am sure we will meet tomorrow, if u won't come today to the party. well and she told me that she wouldn't saty long as well. well but i decided not to go, otherwise i wouldn't be her eright now writing this report ;) the party started at 20.oo at the 'boathouse" oh, and myriam will stay in warsaw till saturday morning btw :) that's really cool.

oh and today i had lunch not in the player's restaurant but with the ball-boys and girls and the reception people etc.

tomorroiw at 8:30 i will be going to practise on the practise courts and who knows? maybe i will get a chance to hit some balls with the players :)

well, maybe i forgot some things, it was such an exciting day and i have so many impressions...

ok, that's it for the moment. wish me good luck for tomorrow, i would love to be the hitting parter of someone, even for 1 minute ;) :hearts: :kiss: :bounce:

That's a great report, Martin. Thanks!
It looks like you are having a ball (pun intended :) ) at the tournament.

Thanks for your report Martin and the news of you meeting Amélie! :D Was it already arranged for Amélie to hit with the 8 yr old girl, or was she just watching Amélie practice at first?

I guess you're going to the tournament every day - hope you have a great week!

Thanks for the report. :)

The Myriam vs Jelena match, was it a high-quality match or was it errors from both players? Did Jelena struggle?
