Well I don't really have anything juicy,
but I got photos and sigs of heaps of players, (just trying to name off the top of my head) inc Mauresmo, Blake, Baghdatis, Vaidisova, Hantuchova, Ivanovic, Groenefeld, Na Li, Peer, Schiavone, Berdych, Grosjean, Sugiyama, Bovina.

Things I want to mention:
Ana Ivanovic was such a sweetie :angel: she was very nice, and signed heaps of ppl and took the time to take a lot of photos with people.
Daniela was actually quite nice (in comparison to my last experience with her), although she seemed a little rushed
Mauresmo basically dropped everything for the fans which was sweet
Vaidisova tried to avoid us, but we went up to her anyway, and she was quite polite.
I was getting signed by Iroda Tulyaganova and someone who was getting signed aswell asked her who she was, and she said she was "Tulyaganova", and I said "Irina?" thinking that was her name, and she said "Yes, yes!" and was quite happy/excited that i had recognized her even though I had gotten her name wrong...
Ummm let's see... Groenefeld was practising with Elena Bovina
Ai Sugiyama's mother was wearing the same thing as Ai, except with long pants. They basically looked like twins it was funny.
Elisaveta Pironkova is a bit of a bitch (no offence), and wears g-strings to practice
Emma Laine was a bit rude
Hmmm so it wasn't really juicy, but it was fun for me to meet players I hadn't previously
All in all, it was a fun time :D

-edit-
Dexter, I do mean Elisaveta :p she is the little sister of Tsvetana, born in 1989. Anyways she was just acting like a real bitch :lol:

Bovina was playing quite well, but had her leg strapped up for some reason. It didn't seem to affect her though...

and... a close-up of Momo :lol: in all the pics she's pulling a face/squinting

Why is Tulyaganova in Sydney?

She's probably preparing for the AO. And because she wants to hit with some good players rather than the NR players currently in Melbourne, it'd be a better idea to stay here. Back in Toronto, Mirza and Chakvetadze were hitting even though they weren't in the draw.

Chak? Chak was actually supposed to play but withdrew, she was facing Nicole but it was Perry who played instead.
