Voila! My reports start.

Hi guys! I`m afraid I won`t be able to write detailed reports, at least not every day. The computers in the press-centre are alwais occupied, so I have to use cybercafes. But anyway I hope to describe what I`ve seen.

This is the 1st day. May I say it was fantastic? I think I may cause it absolutely was. I arrived 1 hour before the matches really started to get a pass and to have a look around before I am too busy. And to dine of course.

Anyway, after that I watched a bit Likhovtzeva - Loit match. I wasn`t impressed with Alyona`s play at all to be frankly. So I left after the 1st set. And immediately I met Nastya in the main street of the Stadium. We just said "hi", I wished her good-luck against Dinara. Next stop - Safina - Myskina match. I watched it from beginning till the end. Dinara started very aggresively, and Nastya was seemingly surprised by it. She actually lost her serve in the 1st game, but already in the 2nd Nastya came back to her senses. May I say she knows how to master powerful players and Dinara is not experienced enough to manage her power. I was sitting next to Nastya`s boy-friend. At first he was trying to encourage her - Davay Nastya etc, but already in the end of the 1st set he was silent and quite confident of Nastya. One row from was sitting Andrey Chesnokov and his son (or nephew?). The boy was so cute . He was speaking of how he got an autograph from Andre Agassi, and what a pity that Pete Sampras was not here.

Next step I took an interview with Nastya. Well, there were not any astonishing eye-openers. We just talked about what she likes in Paris and in Moscow, what was her boy-friends name (the answer is Jens ) an things like that.

Ok, after that I had to choose what match to watch next - Kafelnikov`s or Lina`s. I had no doubts. I like Lina, but Zhenya is high class. So I went to Suzann Lenglen court and watched two first sets. I must say that Zhenya was completely in control of the game from the very beginning. He felt so confident, that I hope he can join the title hunt.

I left Suzann Lenglen just in time to see the 2nd set of Lina`s match vs. Craybas. Our little Russian girl just eliminated that poor Americain. Only in the middle of the 2nd set she became too relaxed and allowed Craybas to level the score. She was very good, but actually I don`t think she stands a chance vs. Amelie right now. But I hope she will rise to the top level soon. Elena Bovina was watching that much (that for the information of miss Leena ).

And the last but not least - I had an interview with Lina, and OMG what an interview was - very sincere to say the least. We talked tete-a-tete about 20 minutes - about her friends and her false friends, about Larisa Neiland, about other girls, about her bad time during the injury. I never thought a player would ever say things like that. In the end we talked about fans and internet, and she told that she visits her unoffficial site (well, that was not surprise ), she was impressed with a poem one guy wrote on this site and she even printed it and store it. And she said she recieve our letter long ago and several times she was here at the RR .

So that`s it. Tomorrow I expect the great day as well. Lena and Vera start their run.

I completely missed Masha, but that was impossible to follow all the matches. But that`s not her last tournament.

Oh wow! Glad you had fun!!

Its great hearing reports from those who are there, kinda helps you soak in the atmosphere!

Could you please suggest to Elena (if you get to tak to her) that she should try phsyiotherapy and exercises to strengthen her shoulder, similar to what Clijsters did.

Thanks!

Hi Fresh,

I didn't see you next to Nastya's boyfriend at her match... whereas I was talking to Chesnokov and his son !
I was wearing a wimbledon cap, maybe you saw me... I hope we could meet here. you can easily recognize me since i will be the only one to wear such a cap

Enjoy Paris !

Thanks for the update on Ms. Bovina.

I'd rather see her practicing instead of watching matches, and talking to everyone... but that's Lena.

If Lina has visited the board... why doesn't she say something?

Enjoy the matches of the Russian tennis players while you can, Fresh. Because this French Open is most likely going to be a Russian blood bath! I think there is a distinct possibility that no Russian tennis player will make the second week. But I hope I'm wrong.
