Its the wake up time that ruins- too hard to stay up and watch, but you'll have had about 4-5 hours sleep already so you'll be ultra bleary and unsatisfied, and then after its time to live out the day, slugging the loong hours by until you can finally go home and sleep.

Back from the tennis :lol: I actually didn't think that Maria played INCREDIBLY BADLY in the first set, it just seemed like she hadn't woken up yet. :lol: Next two sets were so much better, but she should have served them out faster. :o :lol: I got a decent close picture since I managed to catch her as she was leaving her interview and about to get into her car. It's kind of hard getting her autograph tho, there's always a billion people around her. :lol: I'm gonna see her against Azarenka tomorrow; idk if she'll win because from previous experience, she doesn't play her best when she has to play the next day when she has a night match the day before and especially a 3 set one. :unsure: But hopefully she can do it. :p

Well technically I asked her to sign it for my niece, after she did... I started helping people out behind me with grabbing their stuff and putting it out there for her to sign(You only need 1 autograph) it sucks when you have "fans" around you talking about selling what she signed for them on ebay. Funny how her true fans start yelling out "don't sign for him, don't do it".lol ;)

I did it last year but with way less shifts and at night. I guess the body will take cold over heat any day. :o It was pretty brutal this year. The tournament didn't even give us free food or food discount, you know? Though I got to watch some amazing matches from the box.

Going to try to get a press pass next year. Most of my blogger friends here in LA have and I have a year to work on making doublebagel a little more presentable to the professionals. :lol:

Hi, I'm new to this forum and after just one week I've become an even bigger Masha fan. :) Normally I only saw her play the Grand Slams on TV, but thanks to this forum I discovered Internet live-streams. :worship: The time difference between Stanford and Belgium is pretty big, so i had to wake up at 5 AM yesterday and 4:30 AM today but it was totally worth it.
Maria's match against Dementieva wasn't the best ever, but it was a really intense one. I had the feeling both players could win it, luckily Maria finally did. In the semi's Maria played a lot better. The first set obviously wasn't great but i was not really worried because Radwanska didn't won that set, Maria lost it. She just made too much errors. I knew that once she left those errors behind she could win this match and so she did. :cheer: She played some really good tennis in the 2nd and 3th set.
Hopefully she can rest properly and play a good final. Azarenka played a singles and a doubles match yesterday so maybe that will compensate Maria's two consecutive 3 set matches in two nights a little bit. Anyway, I'm looking forward to it. The final will be played at 9 PM here in Belgium and will be broadcasted on TV so that's a good thing. Hopefully we see some great tennis and it would even be better if Maria can win her 23th carreer title.

Ugh that sucks about the people saying they're going to sell what the players signed. :( Idgi, an autograph is a great thing to have. :lol:

Has it ever happened to you that you go and get someone's autograph and then people go after you to get that person's autograph and then after they're done, they go "who's that?" :tape: :lol: I saw Mary Joe Fernandez and Mary Carillo stepping out and about to walk in so I stopped them for an autograph and then some people came after me and got their autographs too and then they said they didn't know who they were. :spit: And then I was in a line for Billie Jean King's autograph and this family asked me what I was in line for and I said BJK's autograph. Then their little girl was like "who?" :hysteric:

:lol: Yes, i've definitely zipped through places as a shorty. :p

Kolschrieber in Melbourne this year. I swear I was his one-woman promo brigade. The whole time he was practising I answered so many 'Whos that?' questions, and when he was signing everyone swarmed and then a couple of people asked me who it was. Both who got autographs and asked me who it was were from families too...

Back from the tennis :lol: I actually didn't think that Maria played INCREDIBLY BADLY in the first set, it just seemed like she hadn't woken up yet. :lol: Next two sets were so much better, but she should have served them out faster. :o :lol: I got a decent close picture since I managed to catch her as she was leaving her interview and about to get into her car. It's kind of hard getting her autograph tho, there's always a billion people around her. :lol: I'm gonna see her against Azarenka tomorrow; idk if she'll win because from previous experience, she doesn't play her best when she has to play the next day when she has a night match the day before and especially a 3 set one. :unsure: But hopefully she can do it. :p

:hearts: you got a pretty good match! at least masha played heaps better than yesterday :cheer:
and you got to hear her grunt at it's loudest :hearts:
have fun 2moro!!

Ohhh you lucky girl :hearts:

getting her autograph..yes you pretty much have to be inline waiting for it or crush anyone who gets in your way. ;) I have no shame in admitting I've powered my way over kids :tape:

It was well worth it :hearts:

that cracked me up :lol:
for masha, we should have no shame in doing these things :rolls:

Tbh I prefer Azarenka in the final allthough Maria has had some tough matches against her. Few weeks ago I was wondering how would Maria do vs Stosur and I didn't like that prospect. The schedulling favours Azarenka but she had a doubles match too, so it may be OK. I just hope Maria won't be tired in the final :sobbing:

I should be here for luck. I said when she was down 3-1 in the first set that she was out of gas, and things were likely to get worse. Later, when she lost a close game, I said it would take her 2 more games just to get straightened out. I, of so little faith.

One thing on my wish list for today---Maria did not catch many breaks on close calls---I wonder if there is any chance that some of those balls that landed one 32nd of an inch out, might accidently fall one 64th of an inch in, today.
