Kids always are asking for my autograph at RG. I have the build for tennis and damn, i sure dress nice, so no strange wonder. I said hi to jankko one time and he thought i was a player. So yeah, it happens to me sometimes. How about you?

Never but I'm sure that if I brought a tennis raquet to USO I would be asked for a number of autographs. I love little kids who run after the players asking "are you famous"?

Yeah, it's like that. I have an autograph book of photos, pretty original. So the kids see me and believe i am a player or something. They'd ask just about anyone. I have been mistaken for a French actor though.

No, no-one's ever mistaken me for someone famous, but I do often have random strangers coming up to me and saying hello and telling they recognise me from other tournaments, or the tournament the year before, or whatever.

Camille Pin though I was her Boyfriend (who is Arnaud Clément) - I mean in my dreams. :lol:

If you are over 30 and male and you say hello to a player or her father or something and are dressed sharply, they usually think you (in this case I) are associated with the wta or are a photographer or something of that nature. :lol:
