OK. so firstly, my pics aren't that great cause my camera didn't zoom that much
but anyway, I'd like to share my story. I would talk about the matches, and who played like what and so forth, but anyone can get that sort of information anywhere else.
Firstly, it was KID's day... so pretending to be 16 and under, we went into the fan-fest dome and got to play mini-tennis with KIM CLIJSTERS. I was playing on her side of the court but... oh well, same thing. She said Hi and stuff and was really friendly, answering questions and things like that. That's me on the left...
So I'll write about all the "good" players I met. And i'll start with the people who rejected us...
Nicole Vaidisova and her dad weren't doing much on the side of the court. So me and my friends decided to ask for one. And the reply from her dad/coach(?) was... nothing. I think she was about to taHe just gave us this massive greasy, and so we got the picture. When she started practice, She looked pretty good, but she kept flicking her hair in that barbie kind of way
Patty Schnyder and Lisa Raymond started walking down the path, then she saw us and walked back and took a detour...
I don't blame them
Its Robredo, but this is the only photo with Daniela in it
like 100 metres away.
Daniela was practicing on the furthest court with Maria Kirilenko. I forgot to take pictures. She was walking down the pathway after practice and this girl in front of us got an autograph from her. So i asked for an autograph and she looked at us briefly and just kept walking muttering something under her breath... it was weird. It was kinda rude but i guess she had to be somewhere. Although...
Sam Stosur had a match 2 or so hours away, and she stopped to give us all autographs and take a photo with us. She was definitely the friendliest.
Anastasia Myskina... at first she told every "no photos" while she was practising, so we left, but when we came back we saw her off the court crying, and her coach (? not jens, some chubby old guy) was giving her a pep talk. It was so sad, she was wiping the tears off her face. Anyway, we decided not to bother her cause she was lookin so sad, but this girl in front decided to ask her for an autograph which Anastasia obliged to... So we asked for one and said thanks wen she signed and she smiled back weakly, with her face and eyes still red from crying...
Paola Suarez and Virginia were standing together (so cute), but I only asked Paola for one, and I think Virginia was a bit annoyed coz she walked away.. .I was planning to ask both of them to sign, but just happened to ask Paola first.
BTW James Blake and Gasquet are HOT.
And Gisela was looking really nice (and was also very friendly and nice) in jeans and casual clothes for some reason... I heard she was going out with Tommy Robredo... Anyway, Here's a pic of them. They were really touchy feely, Gisela was watching him play on the grass or something
- gisela and her bro apparently
I didn't see GRoenefeld and Safina play, but i could definitely hear them coz they were grunting freakin' loud!
Oh and we saw this random guy... we thought he was Feliciano Lopez... but when he got closer to us, we realized he wasn't... anyone know who this is?
Other phtos (they aren't too good): Anna Chak
Justine n Hingis practising together
Franny and another girl maybe vera D
