I went today to Crandon Park, I got there at 10 am. It was nice to see some male and female players. First, I saw Zvonareva (shook her hand :D) i told her i saw her on tv some days ago playing against Capriati, she said it was not a good match for her. She was hitting balls with Douchevina and Panova. Then I wnet to the other courts, and saw Emily Loit, hitting with her coach. Adrianna Serra Zannetti was hitting with an american girl (dont know her :o), and Elissa (hope it is ok, cause she told me how to pronounce it ok like ten times :o) and she told me that antonella wasnt going to play this tournament because she is sick. Then, I saw Dechy, Cohen Haloro and Foretz. They were hitting together. I was amazed how hard Cohen Haloro hits the ball. even harder than Dechy and Foretz. Then it rainded for 20 min and I got wet :o . Every player went to the locker room, and it took one hour to see them practicing again. After the courts got dry, I saw wonderful and cute Mariano Zabaleta, who has a sexy tattoo on his left shoulder ) :drool: he was looking for court G, but he couldnt find ti so i told him there were drey courts in the other side of the park. I took a picture with him. He was so nice :D :kiss:. Then, I saw, Razzano hitting with her coach. Dokic and Petrova were hiiting together. Took some pictures with her. I went ot center court, and i think it was Daniela Hantuchova who has hittig there with her coach. Also, i saw Pavel, i took a picture of him with his cute daugther :D. Iroda was running and runnig all over the park (warming up they call it :o) Krajicek (spell?) was there hittinh with his coach.

*cough* *cough* I went to one court, and saw two cute guys. Magnus Norman and Nicolas Kiefer with no t-shirt. and :drool: these men are so hot :o took some pictures of them. Magnus threw his racket a couple of times, I think the sun was taking effect on him ;). Also, I saw. Garbin talking to her coach. Dementieva and Krasnoroutskaya were hitting together (Lina has red hairnow :D and Elena was moaning so loud, :o. I took a picture of Gaston Gaudio :drool: :kiss: with his friends. Also, I saw Bedanova, Rita gRande, Schett hittig with another girl, Youhzny (spell?) and Hrvaty were hitting together (Michael's brother is so cute but was complinig aobut somethin in Russian, but i did not understand since i odnt know russian) . Then i saw, Zovanreva , Douchevina, hitting with two girls. Fabiola Zuluaga and Rossan Neffa de Los Rios were hititng together. I saw her daugther ansd she looks like Rossana. Her husband told me Rossan could get into the main draw , otherwise she will havr to play qualys. :D

Paradorn was there hitting with his coach. Talaja was there playing with another girl. Coria was there but did not see him practicing. Saw Emanuelle Gagliardi, oh this woman is so cute, her eyes are so beautiful :drool: :kiss:. There were more players that will play qualys but i dont know their names.

I have to say that everyone was nice with me, specially Mariano Zabaleta who is such a nice person.

Then I went to home cause it was 5 30 and it started rainig. My friend who is writer in Argentina could not see Safin (she loves him) :kiss:

kewl you got to see a few of the rising stars (zvonareva, douchevina, cohen aloro, razzano, petrova, lina k) on the womens tour and some big names (dokic, dementieva, schett).

Gowza
Mar 16th, 2003, 12:21 AM
Spicy Bullet, which vera are you talking about? vera Z or vera D. i'm guessing your talking about vera Z.

i hope the russians do well in this tournament especially vera D, lina K and petrova but i do want the others like kuznetsova, sharapova and safina to do well also.

good luck ladies

other names i want to do well in singles are golovin, cohen aloro, bartoli and avants.

yeah, I was so happy I saw them and they all are so nice, and beautiful.

They all look great, Panova has beutiful legs, Iroda got that wonderful smile, :D. Magnus Norman, well mmm he got all the package, so tall :o and with muscles here and there *cough* *cough* and Kiefer has this cute face, :D :drool:

:D :D

Gowza - Vera Z of course ;) But whoever Vera practices with automatically becomes my favorite, so.. Vera D too! ;) LOL!

Daniel - Do you remember what Vera Z was wearing? :o Thanks!

If Stephanie (and Virginie) are still coached by Bruno Dadillon... (I'd say he shouldn't quit his day job except that coaching IS his day job). My French friends, don't let your future (Tatiana) ever work with him. Re. Nathalie, the Placid Parisian (OK, she lives elsewhere sometimes, but the name relates to her approach to the game) is both a smart and a technically very sound player, but her arsenal isn't gonna blow the better players away.

Daniel, i saw vera at the oz open this year but i have forgotten what her serve was like and she was playig badly so she might not have been serving well or since then she could have improved her serve. i have heard people on this board saying she has a bad serve while others say that she is the only russian with a good serve. so i just wanted to ask you whether she does have a good serve or not.

Gowza

Her serve is ok, not with a lot of power like Douchevina but it is ok, most of the time it is deep. i think, overall she has talent, and I think it is good for her to be hitting with Panova and Douchevina. They seem to have a good time together.

:D :D :D

the russians really are starting to get great players. they have produced a great player for every age recently.

they have lina k at 18, zvonareva at 18, kuznetsova at 17, douchevina at 16, safina at 16, sharapova at 15. that is at least one player from age 15 to 18 and in 2 of the age groups they have 2 players. and all these girls have a huge amount of talent.

Does it cost the obligatory $5 to get on the grounds of Crandon on the weekend, or is it free? I havent been down to KB in a while, is there a garage over there?

Sounds like you had a good time :)

Daniel:

When you say "Elissa", were you referring to Alyssa Cohen? If it was a Russian player, I'm trying to figure out which one would be Alisa....

Paradorn was there hitting with his coach.

Paradorn's coach is his father (Mr. Chanachai Srichaphan). Are you sure he was hitting with his father ?

Any pics of Tammy and Paradorn if any.

Enjoyed reading your report. Looking forward for the next one.

Thank you.

Looking forward to your next report. Since you're already gone, I hope you saw Jelena and Ansley Cargill. Any news about them would be great. :)

I went to one court, and saw two cute guys. Magnus Norman and Nicolas Kiefer with no t-shirt.

Anyone who goes to Miami should know that they will see alot of male players shirtless. I can say from going down to the area most vacations that it is BRUTAL to play tennis in the heat. And, honestly, who likes to play tennis in a sweaty shirt? :confused:

TheBoiledEgg
Mar 16th, 2003, 05:34 PM
she might play doubles
i wish she came and played singles as well but she isn't :(

Hopefully Lina has more luck with her red hair 2nd time around :)

Cohen Aloro also surprised me in Scottsdale at how hard she hits the ball. She must be awefully inconsistent though because players like Bartoli gave her a good match.

Lucas yo estuve hoy y vi a Clarisa y a Paola!
Aunque Paola estuvo como 10 minutos en la cancha pero no entreno y Clarisa pareceia que no tenia un buen dia, espero que cuando este jugando en el torneo le vaya mejor.

Daniel sabes cuento cuesta el parking maņana y donde se puede estacionar???

Besos
