Back from Madrid

Posted Nov 13th, 2006 at 05:00 PM by skiingblueangel8
Well I'm back home now from Madrid. Had a really good time. Really enjoyed the tennis and taking photos there. Gives me more determination to become a sports photographer

Was really nice to meet some ppl off the Amelie Mauresmo message board. Spotted wolfcub (prowler) as she was wearing her Fila gear and Head rucksack (in support of Sveta).

My favourite match was that I saw live was Sveta against Dementieva. Mainly cos I got too see my fave. Loved svetas "football" skills. She was doing a serve and volley at one point and the serve was called as a let but the ball was coming back to her fast so she kicked it. It was lucky the net was at the end of the court or else somebody wud have been hit. I think she got a warning for it.
She kicked the ball a few other times in the match as well. Really loved watching her though and took over 150 pics of her alone

Another match that I enjoyed (which suprised me!! ) was Dementieva and Sharapova. I liked the fact that elena got 2 aces in the match
At one point Maria broke Elena and shouted "come on". In Maria's next service game Maria double faulted on the 1st point and a woman behind me shouted "come on" sarcastically. It really made me smile
She then went on to lose that service game. But won the match in the end

Would have really loved to meet Sveta but it wasn't to be this time
I'm sure I will go to other tournaments as I've got a taste for it now. So maybe next time.

So thats it for my news for now, apart from tomorrow is my 1st day at work
Just have to wait and see how it goes. Updates probably tomorrow.
