My 1st Time as a Lineman - Valencia Open

Valencia Open has been a special tournament for me, i was as a lineman there for the first time in an ATP event, it's been something incredible, a dream come true.
In the first match (Knowle vs Berrer) i was too nervous and i made an error cos i jugded a serve good when was out (but too difficult to see), but then i did it perfect only anothere serve from Bennetau against Ferrer.

To be a lineman in a center court is somenthing incredible, my first time was in gonzalez-kohschreiber match, also i was in the main court in Costa-Davydenko, Ferrer-Bennetau and Kuerten-Rochus.

Also i went to the players party on wednesday, Ferrero had lost hours before and in the party ... became drunk, it was relly funny watching him drunk
Kuerten was there until 2 am. (and had to play on thursday against martin ...), Costa, Luzzi, Verdasco, Nadal were at the party for a while.

So it's been an incredible experiencie, i'm going to put some photos!

jc was drunk?! u gotta tell me more!!!

How many times must we of shot nerves witness the undoubted pain & suffering of muppets everywhere before we stand up against the cavemen??

One muppet, who wishes to remain anonymous, has this to say: "You know, I uhhhh cannot stay all the time at the you know, base of the line. Too much uhhhh pression."

It is your turn to help - The "Save A Muppet Foundation" needs you!

Thank you. It is crucial that you share as many pics and experiences with the ATP tour as possible.

Your words are a godsend to us common folk.

Congrats Alvarillo.

I promise I'll think twice before yelling at a linesman in future.

Were you nervous calling? I would be!

Plus did anyone give you a bad stare?
