I asked a friend of mine who is serena's bodyguard for about a few years if they already arrived and he replied they have arrived this noon. then he told me they'll be training at about 5 on some secret tennis courts. Later I went there with a friend and was talking with rena's bodyguard a few. A few mins later richard williams came off the trainings courts with an extreme short legging :lol:
and with him was a woman who I have never seen before, Sascha, serena's hitting partner left the courts as well and finally went to the hotel rooms with daddy richard and the woman.
before they left I asked sascha when serena's bday was, cuz I wasnt sure if it was today or yesterday and he answered with yesterday.
a few later both williams came out with the manager I think and some redhaired guy and I wished rena a belated birthday lmao. she was very nice, smiled and looked back to me and said some more, which i didnt really understand and I just said sth like yeah lol
while I was talking to rena venus came from behind and said hey and I was like heey lol
I then asked her for a pic and got it.
we continued our walk and with like 3 dogs. :lol: venus had problems to make her dog listen xD but later finally got him into her bag lol
when our ways were divided we said good bye and they left to their hotel.

I was really surprised how cool both williams are and big thanks to sascha and rena's bodyguard. :)

I just met Venus again. like one hour ago. she was kinda sad though :(
I went out of the arena with a friend to chilax a bit lol then I saw venus who walked with her dog behind the arena. she was alone and walked to some windows from the arena and looked at the center court from outside. looked kinda sad somehow :sad: few mins later she walked back quite fast as she saw a man going straight to her. I saw walking towards me to her hotel room and when she was in front of me I was like hey venus, she said hey and i took another pic with her :p I also asked her if she will come back here next year and she said she hopes. after we took the pic I didnt want to talk longer with her cuz I felt she was still kinda sad, so I said bye and cu or sth lol..she wished me a good night and went to the hotel with her dog :)

Serena and Venus Williams are in Town

Stuttgart. Two of the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix’s superstars are in town. Serena and Venus Williams landed at Stuttgart airport on Saturday and have checked into the Hotel Hilton Garden Inn Stuttgart NeckarPark. Whilst Serena, the world No. 1, her hitting partner Sascha Bajin and a friend arrived in Stuttgart on schedule from Miami via Düsseldorf, her sister, who was booked on another flight, had a trip with difficulties. Her flight from Miami to Frankfurt was cancelled as the aeroplane had a technical fault. She was forced to rebook and was eventually able to fly to Stuttgart via Zürich along with her father Richard, hitting partner David Witt and a friend – but only after a seven hour delay.

The sisters therefore arrived totally unplanned at Stuttgart Airport only five minutes apart from one another. Much to the delight of Tournament Director Markus Günthardt, who only had to make one “welcome to Stuttgart” journey. “I would have been very happy to have driven to the airport twice,” he said, “but Serena and Venus are both here. That’s the main thing.”

I saw you sitting in VIP friday and saturday. I also saw you talking to Rennae after her matches. What were you talking about? And did you talk to Kveta, too?
I met Rennae 5mins after her semifinal win, running through the parkhouse, alone. I don't know why she was hurrying up but as soon as I recognized her, I said "GL tomorrow!" She was friendly and smiled and said "Hey! Thank you:) "

I congratulated her and asked her when she will be training tomorrow.
she also asked me if a friend of mine needs a ticket for the finals today and even gave him a badge that he could sit in her box again and support her ;)

Wow Russianboy you are very lucky indeed. I met the sisters, their parents and isha at wimbledon this year. And they are all very patient and kind to all their fans. I think their true fans reward them with their loyalty for their patients and kindness to their fans. I'm glad Vee took her time with you as you seem worth it. But I hope that this has turned you into a Veefan if you weren't already!
