I only got the email about this today! (And today is the day it's
happening! Damn it....)

It's a wine-tasting session with Conchita Martinez, in San Diego.

Re: << The Legend Señorita Conchita >>

There's no way, with Friday rush-hour traffic, that I could get from
Los Angeles down to San Diego in time for this.

...unless I take the moto. (But what a painful ride that would be!
Lane-splitting for hours...)

Re: << The Legend Señorita Conchita >>



Would have been great for you to meet her there Mary

Abt the pics during Anabel-Alicia match , I can only hope Conchi will fly to Paris to support the Spanish Armada and I can meet her there since I could not see her last time I went to RG

Re: << The Legend Señorita Conchita >>

Yeah, I can just imagine, walking into the wine shop in my armoured
leather jacket, and cortex armoured pants, all messy from the ride.
Probably not the best look for a wine-tasting party... (and wine-tasting
is probably not a good mix with motorcycle riding, anyway.)

Hopefully she'll attend the Acura Classic, or maybe I'll find enough time
to infiltrate the moto-riding community in San Diego and see her riding
sometime!

I hope you see her at RG!

Re: << The Legend Señorita Conchita >>

indeed Fran

you cant imagin how miserable I felt seeing her on the giant screen outside the Chatrier Court because I had no aaccess to this court - especially when I knew it was probably her last match at RG 1st round vs Henin - she played so well I really thought she would come back and steal the win out of Justione's hands and create a huge upset- too bad she could not win at the end (60 46 64 coming from 51 in the third)

Re: << The Legend Señorita Conchita >>

you did well - it sure was a great match - I wish i had it taped somewhere

I remmeber the very first game of the second set (won by Justine too) lasted AS LONG AS the whole first set - that 's when Justine realized it would definitely not be this easy against Conchi - and when I started to believe : she'll be back , even after this bagel

indeed great memories- would have been HUGE had she won but things are like they are ... and Henin finally won the whole tournament (vs Pierce she beat my two faves in 1st and last round )

My faves Conchita's matches:

d. Davenport in AO
d. Raymond/Fernandez partening with ASV in Fed Cup'98
was d. by Venus in YEC'99
d. Hingis in German Open'00
d. ASV in RG'00
was d. by Justine in Fed Cup'01
d. Schnyder in Charleston'04
was d. by Myskina in Indian Wells'04
d. Myskina in Doha'05
my 3 faves are :

d Navratilova F Wimbledon 94 - never saw her play that well - each time I watch this match I'm like woooaawww - she was the new Queen - too bad it did not last - because she had then the game to be the new number 1 ...

d Mc Neil 94 Wimbly 94 - I only saw the last games but it was emotionnal too and I loved Mc Neil too - too bad I never saw the whole match

d ASV FO 00 SF that feeling was SOOOOOOO good after such a demolition



I loved the Myskina one in Doha

never saw her beating Davenport at Ao would love to see this one

never saw the Hingis one in Berlin either

I liked seeing her beat Likhovtseva 97 in the third set at Ao 2000 (QF)
also beating SFE in Eastbourne 2004 SF- she had a great game for grass

and the beating of Pierce in RG99 where she drew her 2nd round - so far she had never lost before the 4th round of RG and had an awful draw with Pierce (Conchi was unseeded that year) - and she still won !


I have a few other matches taped , but most of the others are matches Conchi lost so I barely watch them again (vs Clijsters , Hingis , Pierce FO 2000 Seles Amelia Island 99 etc etc )


I'm still totally in love with Conchi's game and each match is a pleasure to watch

Re: << The Legend Señorita Conchita >>

the problem is my computer always "freezes" when I watch videos , my internet connexion stops

I'd rather have them on DVDs or even tapes

I'll take care of that some day

Re: << The Legend Señorita Conchita >>

I had no hope Conchi would ever come back

April 15/16 2006 marked the end of my career as a true , hardcore tennis fan

Re: << The Legend Señorita Conchita >>

Looks like Conchi will be playing in the Over 35's event at Wimbledon this year.
