I went to Montreal with my family for vacation and to watch some tennis. My oldest who is 12 came 2 of the 4 days I went to the tennis and the rest was sightseeing and just enjoying the food. I also met up with a friend that I had met in Miami at the Nasdaq 2005. It was the first tennis tournies in a very long time
I had started to follow the Israeli duo about April last year. I just started enjoying watching doubles more than singles. I like the pace and the volleying. And in Montreal I had watched Okun's qualies and then first round. Liked watching him but I saw loads of tennis in Montreal.
Cinci was from Sat to Wed and I had plans to go alone and just have a nice vacation away from the stresses of work and life in general. But it ended up being an unusual vacation to say the least. I had been following some other singles players but was turned off by antics. Enough said. Anyway I don't really care about autographs but my oldest and I had watched the Israeli duo's first round match and he liked them so asked me to get their autograph if I could. To be honest although I don't have any trouble talking to people/players when the time seems right, I am too old to ask for autographs. But as noted above I had the opportunity and I think my joking with Yoni helped. And what a mother will do for her children
