Last nite i ended up going to the players party they have each year in Melbourne on Flinders avenue int his little bar thingo. En route to the 'bar thingo' i went passed the Hyatt Hotel which is right near where the party was held , and i saw Razzano , Iva , Danilidou ,Clement , and Safin in the lobby and dining.

The party started at 9pm and the only player i recgnised was Joannette Kruger. She wore this great outfit and looked dazzling , MUCH BETTER than on court! i spoke to her very briefly and took a pic with her..she didnt seem to friendly..

next up i saw Annabel Ellwood and i went up to her and again spoke briefly , took a pic and wished her luck in the doubles event. Anabel looked great and definately knows how to dress , but it wasnt as good as Kruger's outfit IMO...AUSBOY also spoke to her and for quite a while ,she seemed easy going.

Other players i spoke to and had my pic taken with were Kveta Hrdlickova(this girl went off on the podium and is a real party animal) , Schwartz(suprisied i recognised her) and more...

i went up to a Panova look alike but it definately wasnt her...and Andrea Glass denied my claim it was her ;)...

all in all it was a fun nite , a chance to see the players off court and partying and having some fun...definately something id like to do again sometime. :D
