I have, I have <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0"> . Last year an exhibition match in Hong Kong won by Monica against Serena, tiebreaker 7:6 in the third set. Monica is really a sweet girl, many asked for her autographs and she signed them all, I climbled down the fences and asked her to sign on my book, she did but unluckiliy I forgot to bring her flowers or souvenirs <img src="frown.gif" border="0">

Hi fellow Selestials...

Just stopped by to get a quick Monica fix and saw this thread.

I'm one of the fortunate ones - I know Monica and (incredibly) she knows me as well. I've talked to her after many matches... L.A., Oklahoma, Kansas City (Team tennis) & N.Y. (her last Chase) since 1997. I'm very lucky, as I've even spoken to her alone a couple of times, and hand delivered messages from the other board to her.

The last time was in L.A. after that amazing win over Serena - All those match points! The organizers were rushing her off the court, but she stopped long enough for a quick congratulatory hug. (A friend sitting on the other side of the court snapped a pic of this--if I ever learn how to post it, I will)

For those that haven't met her yet, know that you've picked a wonderful person as your fave. She's everything you think she is and more. She is a very genuine person that truly values her fans. When you do meet her, don't be star struck, talk to her. Tell her that you admire her, or always cheer for her, or whatever you feel. She will answer with a "thank you" and a smile that will stay with you forever.

Take care all,<br />~ec

(Special "hi" to Miranda. You should not regret that you didn't bring her anything when you met her. Just being there supporting her was great! Remember the smile!)

I MET MONICA!<br />OMG!

Let me tell ya:

It was at Brasil Open, in Bahia, Brazil.

First of all, I tried to catch her on the practice courts, I watched her 1-hour practice all the time and when she was taking a rest I talked to Monica's mum:<br />"Hi, I'm a Monica fan would you mind to ask Monica to take a photo with me after the practice?"<br />She answered:"I'm afraid not because she is tired but maybe after match."

I still insisted, when I approached her (she was with two security guards), she said: Sorry, after match please and gave me a BIG smile <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

Ok then. I watched all her match against Tatiana Panova. She won very easy. After she won, when she was leaving the court, I was with my jumbo ball and I shouted: MONICA I LOVE YOU!!! She signed it and said: Thank you, thank you. When she was leaving the court I still shouted: YAAAAAAAY! She looked back again and smiled.

Well, it wasn't such a meeting, but next year when I attend the tournament again, I will definitely give her some flowers and (like selesfan1) I will give her a cutie keychain.

In the final, I did a big sign for Jelena Dokic (JELENA I LOVE YOU). I like both players, but I decided to do a sign just for Jelena, cause Monica had already much supporters. Jelena didn't give a damn about me, not even smiled, the tournament organizor pointed to me during the trophy presentation and she still didn't give a damn. After that, I realized I should have been 100% Monica on that tournament and next year I will support her so very much that she won't forget that young brazilian fan <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

GO MONICA!!!
