Re: Main Draw

It's my personal perogative to leave 'famous' people alone. Last year in scottsdale before Andy and Jan-Mike's QF match, Andy was warming up on the court and there was almost no one in the stadium. It was like, my mom and me, and this other guy. This guy asks to borrow a pen from my mom so she gives him one, then as Andy finishes his warmup (we're talking like 30 minutes before the match began, at the most) this guy butts into Andy's conversation with Brad and asks him to sign the back of his ticket. Andy was cool about it, but you could see it really annoyed him b/c he was trying to focus and here was this guy hounding him for an autograph. That really bothered me.

I think there's a time and place for it. Like Fee did transportation in San Jose, obviously she was gonna talk to the players lol. But for ME personally, I'm just gonna leave the poor guys alone - they have enough other people nagging at them from all corners, so I'd just rather stand back and observe. I learn a lot about people that way, plus then I can just take pics and pics are my favorite way to remember stuff anyway. And it's just not my style to find out where players will be when and stalk it out and find them and go up to them, I'm just not comfortable with it.

When I'm their lawyer, maybe that'll be different.
