View Full Version : US OPEN "Sightings"

Sep 1st, 2002, 05:21 AM
I'm working at the Open so I get to see alot of players and get lots of gossip.

Here is a list of people that I have seen and heard this week:

Tatiana Golovin...checking in and confirming that Brad Gilbert is now coaching her. She is very cute.

Monica ... sees her daily as she practices right in front of our office. She looks very fit. She is still heavy in the middle, but everyone has a fat pocket, so whatever!! She keeps to herself. She is either with Mike in the lounge or hanging out by herself.

Anna...she came in the other to get one of her friends a pass. She is much thinner than she looks on TV, if you can believe that. She has bad skin.

Venus...sitting in the lounge have a snack with Mashona before her match with Alicia.

Serena...surrounded by USTA security, armed officers and undercover cops, prior to the arrest of her stalker.

Richard coming in everyday to say HI...he is the sweetest old man...he has everyone laughing their asses off.

Cory Ann...she is much prettier in person. Actually, she is GORGEOUS, TV does not do her justice. Had a long conversatioin with her...very sweet girl

Jen...giving us dirty looks in the players box tonight. :)

Myskina...diggin in her teeth after she had just ate...DISGUSTING...she was doing it right in my face.

Dementieva...slew of boys lined up at the fence watching Elena practice. Its the first time I had ever seen her in anything tight.

Anna...practicing late last night...which resulted in security being called in to monitor the swelling crowds.

Sampras...taking 15 mins today to sign autographs

Jaden Gil...in our office today with his grandma...he is soooo adorable.

I cant think of anyone else right now, but if anyone has questions, dont hesitate to ask. I have been roaming the players lounge and the locker room all week.

Any news on Jelena?

Sep 1st, 2002, 05:26 AM
I saw Jelena crying in the hallway after her loss and I havent seen her since. Eleni said she withdrew and left.

Sep 1st, 2002, 05:31 AM
Howabout Martina Hingis?? Who does she hang out with?

Sep 1st, 2002, 05:34 AM
I've only seen her with Garcia and Anna...

I see her mom and mario all the time. her mom just sits around and stares at people.

Sep 1st, 2002, 05:48 AM
Hey BK,
Right on the money about Richard and Cory Ann. Cory Ann really is gorgeous and very friendly and Richard is an absolute scream. Have you gotten to see Flavio Saretta or Marat Safin rolling around (and if you saw Marat, were you able to recover);)

Sep 1st, 2002, 06:49 AM
Poor Jelena :(

Sep 1st, 2002, 09:21 AM

Poor Jelena :sad:

Did you see Kim or Lleyton ???

Sep 1st, 2002, 01:50 PM
I was just about to ask that Lleyki :p

Sep 1st, 2002, 03:19 PM
Any Henrieta Nagyova news?

Sep 1st, 2002, 04:03 PM
Thanks for the report. I'm so envious of anyone who gets to see a Slam. Let the board know if anything interesting happens.

Sep 2nd, 2002, 03:31 AM
I'm just gonna answer questions in no particular order...

Saw Davey, she is really thin...most of the girls are much thinner than they look on TV. She is always with her coach and she doesnt hang out at the Center... Alot of players come early brfore their matches and hang out in the lounge.

Ansley is a hang out girl, her and her crew are always around.

Havent seen Smash at all...not even practicing

Henrieta is a stick but she has a great personality. Her coach was really pissed at her after the Vera beat down.

Saw Kremers coach carrying her bag after her loss? Are they going out?

Saw lleyton laying on a couch in the players lounge.

Jaden is a star...he is cute as hell...he got the best of both parents :)

Sep 2nd, 2002, 03:58 AM
megan...u can be a stick and still be fit...Daja is the same way. Both are very very thin, but have great muscle tone.

Sep 2nd, 2002, 03:59 AM

Sep 2nd, 2002, 04:15 AM
Anne K. may have her coach 'trained' for her losses.;) Wish I knew if they were dating.

Poor Henrieta :sad:

Have you seen Babsi Schett, Daniela Hantuchova, or Marissa Irvin? :D

Sep 2nd, 2002, 04:18 AM
I saw Yoon-Jeong and Janet Lee practicing on Thursday. I felt bad for Yoon-Jeong because it seems like she does not speak/understand a word of English. People were asking for her autograph and she seemed so lost. I asked for her autograph and she bowed and said "Hai." I sheepishly asked her for a pic and she did the same thing. When I told her good luck against Monica, she seemed really confused and then just bowed and said "Hai." I'm sure I could have said "I want to take you back to my place and impregnate you" and would have gotten the same response. I would be itching to go back to Korea once I lost if I were in her position. It can't be fun at all!

Sep 2nd, 2002, 04:18 AM
i saw tanasugarn she lost some weight,she was about to go to the computer room when I saw her.
I saw widjaja eating after she lost in the second round,she wasnt too happy.
I saw prakusya too,she was walking around.
those are the players I'm familiar with.

Sep 2nd, 2002, 04:24 AM
yeah Marisa irvin is always in her playing clothes (she is always ready) i saw her like billion times she eats jogurt every time i see her,her mom is always with her,her mom has Huge Huge boobs,they are implants and she did have some work on her done,but she is older and she really looks awesome,nothing better than older lady taking care of herself:D
hantchuva is really really skinny,I dont know where the energy to play.

ohh i think thats all!!!!!

Sep 2nd, 2002, 04:34 AM
Yoon-Jeong said, "Hai"? :confused:
I know she can speak Japanese, but I didn't think she'd use it in America! :eek:

Sep 2nd, 2002, 04:38 AM
Anything on Zvonareva? :)

King Aaron
Sep 2nd, 2002, 09:38 AM
Thanks for the info on Ansley. Hope you see her more and wish her good luck in her doubles match for me!!

Sep 2nd, 2002, 11:04 AM
