My Rogers Cup Experience UPDATED Day 1,2,3 (Pages 1 and 2)

Okay, so I went to the men's tournament last year, so I finally got to see the women this year. I was kinda afraid after seeing how the men played and then seeing the women. Well I was NOT disappointed. The women are great too! They are such clean ball strikers, can sustain long rallies with pace and are very athletic. They look so much more like athletes in person that on t.v. For example, agnieska radwanksa can actually hit the ball with pace and marion bartoli is soooo fit!! All the players were very nice too, I got 25+ autographs and severeal pictures of players/with me and players! I was really impressed with Vika and Caro. They are suchhh nice people and great players too! They hit the ball so cleanly and strike it hard too! At several points in their practises they were outrallying their male opponents I got a picture with both of them and their signatures. Also, something maybe not all of you know, the players are really friendly with eachother. They were hitting together, saying Hi to eachother and even joking with eachother. Few different notes:

Kuzzie is a freaking practise whore. Man she was for sure out there the longest, and hit with amelia twice, and carla.
Michelle larcher de brito played horrific, I only forced myself to watch about 2 games from her baddd stuff.
A really exciting match was sania mirza vs. pelletier! It was packed on the grandstand court. Surprisingly there were quite a few people rooting for sania, as was I. I yelled out "c'mon" whenever she won a point. That was an exciting and good quality match from what I saw, so only the third set.
I felt so bad for this girl named meng. Some might not know her but she lost to serena at the AO. She was on a practise court with 3 people watching, and those people asked her who she was I said out loud, I KNOW YOU! To hopefully maker her feel better. She also practised with her coach, who I'm sure is her mom. That was kinda sad also, because she could not hit a good ball at all All these other players have their fancy coaches and hitting partners, and she has her mom...but good for her She was hitting fairly well from what I saw.
Oh, I have a FUNNY STORY! Ok, so after practise, Alize Cornet, signed my book and took a picture with me. But there as this guy there alone who wanted his photo taken, so I said sure, no problem. I rushed to empty my hands and held down the button and looked up and saw Cornet laughing..So I'm like okayyy What is she laughing at? Then I looked back at the screen and realized I pressed the power button instead of the button to take the picture. Everyone started laughing and I was like "Oh sweet, that wasn't embarrassing..." But anyways I finally managed to operate a digital camera properly and took a pic for him.

I can't think of anything else for now, except for the fact that neither williams was there, and I WANT TO SEE THEM TOMORROW OR AT LEAST AT SOME POINT! Quali days are awesome to meet players! I will make more posts as I remember things and post some pictures I took.

Re: My Rogers Cup Experience

Good literature.
How am I to believe someone who insist that "Agnieszka Radwańska can actually hit the ball with pace".
You lost all credibility with this statement

Re: My Rogers Cup Experience

I agree. Women's tennis is dramatically different to what you expect when you watch it live. In fact the better matches I saw at the Australian Open this year were from the women's side, althought I didn't see Nadal v. Verdasco..that was insanely good.

Whilst its probaby silly to say, Agneiszka does hit the ball harder then you expect. Even though it isn't as hard as other girls, who just pound it...it still exceeds your expectations.

The TV does tennis no justice, being at a match live makes a world of difference.

Perhaps you can refrain from posting a sarcastic remark concerning my point of view. On T.V and from what other people said it made me think she barely hit the ball. She has nice clean strokes and hits with decent pace and accuracy.
