Its Mr Bean Time Again!! beware, if your going to a wta event or slam!

Ok, this crazy fan has a thread dedicated to him on wtaworld! AKA MR BEAN!
He will be seen at the uk wta events and also the grandslams, where women play!
Be on the look out for him, and post in this thread if you see him (he's often seen carrying 2-3 plastic bags with a large SLR camera around his neck.):

Re: Its Mr Bean Time Again!! beware, if your going to a wta event or slam!

I must make the effort to go to the tournament this year, so I'll be on the lookout for sure! I am, however, assuming that this particular Mr Bean does not share his televisual counterpart's taste for tweed jackets, Red Minis and endearingly clumsy behaviour...

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Lmao... there's also a guy that goes to all the men's tourneys - Maurice O'Neill... He is a legend, gets passes given to him because he's been going for so long. Supports the LTA and British players SO much!
He and his wife travel everywhere, and know everyone!

LOL, sometimes people like that are more entertaining than the tennis.

at the thread. I've missed out on so many interesting events at that tournament when it's little more than a mile from my house...

It's not paranoid of me not to want to give the name of the street, is it? Anyway, I live up on the hillside near the Downs - you're entering into Old Town territory there... I have a view down to the sea and the tournament is more or less in my eyeline.
