Here is the last of my Bercy Photos

OK, how about a contest. Who was the first tennis player at Bercy Stadium this morning? any guesses? Anyway it was cool. Watched some of the Carraz v Rochus match and then Tsonga v Starache. I really enjoyed it, was in the first row, thats whats so nice about the qualies. What else? Malisse was there, Taylor, Tod, Spadea, Gael monfils, Richard, Mathieu, Zabaleta, Dupuis, most of the french players cept Scud Grosjean and llodra, otherwise most frenchies were there. Enqvist stopped by with his girlfriend i guess and i got a nice photo of them smiling together as well as a nice photo of richard with a girl i think. otherwise some photos of Zabaleta Mathieu tsonga and maybe a few others. I got a nice shot of Taylors car, he moved to quick and the camera is too slow to make for nice photos. HOpe to see more tennis tomorrow, unfortunately feel pressure to get home. so ill be there monday too and hope to share photos soon. I met the woman who runs Sportfiles.com and she is cool and im gonna buy some of her photos maybe for RG next year or possibly open gaz. Zabaleta hung around and he was probably the most gregarious of the lot. nice tennis in a nice setting. I encourage all frenchies to go there.

Re: Just got back from Bercy - it was fun

Thanks for that Frog and yes you are right Zabaleta is a very friendly guy and good for you to get some photos and enjoy the event.

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".

Thanks FrogBurger!

Is it just me or is Potito Starace a lost brother of Adrien Brody?

Re: Just got back from Bercy - it was fun, heres some photos i hope

Oh my goodness i am all choked up! Yesterday afternoon only GWHitler responded so i figured that nobody was that interested in photos and news from Bercy. Again thank you very much for the positive feedback and this has encouraged me to post more about French tennis tournaments. Yesterday was a good day with a good match from Tsong and Starace. It was a very close first set. I was impressed with Tsonga. When i saw him at RG in May he was not so built. The guy is a brick shithouse now. He is strong and impressed me with some nice touch volleys at net. It was tough knowing who to root for. there was a contingent of young Starace fans in the audience, i like Potito but tend to favour french players. I met a lot of french fans. There were a lot of empty seats and today was even more quiet.

Today Tim Henman showed up and signed autographs for everyone. IN fact his coach called him back once he left to sign for a little girl who wanted his autograph. I got an autograph and i didnt even have to push many children out of the way to get it. I will give it to my English colleague for her birthday. I saw Bjorkman and Woodbridge who walked from the hotel, like crossing the bridge to the stadium as i was walking to get inside today. Taylor practiced very early and was the first guy at the stadium today according to a reliable source. BTW Stephanie Cohen Aloro stopped by today and yesterday. Sanguinetti, melzer, stepanek, henman, soderling Gaudio Mardy Fish david ferrer and malisse were the guys i saw practicing. By the way its very cold in court one cause its an ice skating rink underneath so your feet tend to get kind of cold. i could only stay a little bit today due to personal engagements but hope to get in a full day of tennis tomorrow. if you want to get tickets id be there early cause there are not many tickets left. i only took 6 or 7 pictures today. they wont let you take photos with a flash once inside so i cant take picutres of people playing anymore. I might try to go to Addidas shop as they are giving away tickets for thursdays tennis. then i could possibly go for an hour during lunch one day, otherwise i have to work. thanks again for the encouragement. I will to put up todays photos later this afternoon.

Re: Just got back from Bercy - it was fun, heres some photos i hope

Frog, thanks for sharing your experiences, in 99 cases out of 100 it's better to read fan's personal experiences of tennis than what is reported.

The best thing about indoor tennis is that you are guaranteed to see tennis irrespective of the weather, the worst is that the players aren't as accessible as they are at outdoor events.

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".
