Question question

Sawubona

Have any of you seen amanda play live? I have once. It would be more if the wta gave south africa a tourney. I watched her play in the exhibition against anna k. She won , finally after losing to anna twice.

I have seen Amanda many times at the Oz Open...it is great for me because we are on summer holidays and Amanda always plays very well at Melbourne Park so she usually gets through a few rounds. Seeing her is really great...because she is even more beautiful (although smaller ) in person, and her muscles are all the more defined in real life (she's in great shape ) I got her autograph at the Oz Open this year just before her match with Rosanna De Los Rios in the second round . She really takes the time to make eye contact with all her fans and she makes you feel really welcome (unlike some players who are really abrupt and act as even signing autographs is just something they have to do. She really is a great person!!

Here are all the Amanda matches I have attended since I first became a tennis fan in 1997 :

1998 Australian Open 3rd Round def Ellwood
1998 Australian Open 4th Rounds lost to Huber
1999 Australian Open Second Round def J. H Decugis
1999 Australian Open 3rd round def Lee
1999 Australian Open 4th Round lost Hingis
2000 Australian Open 1st round def Panova
2001 Australian Open 2nd Round def Talaja
2001 Australian Open 3rd Round def Weingartner
2001 Australian Open 4th Round def Suarez
2002 Australian Open 1st Round def Oremans
2002 Australian Open 2nd Round def R Delos Rios
2002 Australian Open 3rd Round def Schett

So I have seen many of Amanda's matches...maybe I'll describe some later ... Linda I feel sorry for you that you have not been able to see her , I am hoping that she will play Rosmalen this year so you can finally see her ...it really is great.

I've seen her twice:

1. Fed Cup: SA vs Aus - westridge stadium (1997 {i think})
2. vs Anna K : Exhibition Game 1 - westridge (2001)

She is so quiet on court, u can easily forget she's there.

she is an
