The new tennis stadium is beautiful, but half empty, so we were able to meet a few of the players who were milling around. The match between Hurosova v. Grande was much more competitive than Sharapova vs. Srebotnick. Sharapova may weigh more than Dani H. but not much :p they are very similar in build and playing style. Maria S got a code violation warning for coaching, but instead of kicking up a fuss, she went right back playing. Her serve was up to 102 MPH sometimes, but she must have had at least 4 DFs

Met Maggie Maleeva, Virgirnia Ruano Pascaul, and Chanda Rubin who were all very cheerful and gracious. Saw Dokic who seemed to be in a good mood, but the people working there said, Sharapova was acting like a diva!!

Overall I was impressed!!

yes, you are right, this is an IMG tourney...maybe Maria is the their next big thing...she certainly has the talent to back up the hype...but's she's awfully thin...hope she doesn't catch whatever it is Dani H has :)

do you mean Angie Haynes? She plays tonight, but I did see her there with her family. Dad, Mom (?) and someone who could be her little sis...she seemed really happy, just a kid at a tennis match, someone had to tell me she had qualified for the tourney ;)
