Federer practicing with Allegro

Well, they were having a practice session (from 5 to 7 pm) today. I was about to leave after the Grosjean match, but then noticed all those ppl around the M3 court.
Federer was pretty relaxed and joking around with his girlfriend. Mirka, the ball girl, was moving around one of the chairs before sitting on it, and then moving it around again.

I didn't know that he talked to Allegro in french (thought up to now that it was swiss german).

Of course there were 2-3 security guys, and one of those picked up a ball. Federer asked him to give him the ball by first saying "thanks", then "danke", but the guy in black didn't get it right away. It was pretty funny. Good mood on and off the court.

At 5:45 it started to rain, but it was only light rain, so it didn't bother them that much.

I also saw Waske/Kohlmann and DC captain Kuehnen.

Some kid made noise and Waske turned around (everybody expecting an angry reaction), but then just said: "Yeah, right you are."

I'll post the photos tomorrow since I currently can't access the photos with my PC (missing the necessary cable), but I thought that maybe some ppl would be interested

Re: Federer practicing with Allegro

Yeah, looks like Roddick might be the only one of the Top 10 missing.
And I didn't expect Hewitt to play either.

I am not sure if I'll have the time to go tomorrow, but I am certainly very tempted to. Maybe I'll just have to get the week ticket after all, since it costs less than 5 or 6 normal day tickets, I think.

Fan of: Federer Safin Haas Nadal Santoro Agassi Tursunov's blog

"I couldn't even tell you who the No. 1 ranked tennis player in the world is right now," Federer said. "It's probably me, still. It is, isn't it?" The Onion

Russophilic member of the MTF Perv Squad--objectifying Tarpischev, Kafelnikov, and Volkov like whoa.

Re: Federer practicing with Allegro

Well, it's not like Federer hasn't trained with Alllegro before.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Federer practicing with Allegro

So there's no signs of him dumping Mirka? Is this meant to be good news or what that federer appears happy?
