Anyways here I am,
So today my friend and I went to the masters series, yup the qualies! It was tones of fun!
Anyways the first match we went to see was Marco Chiudinelli and Srichaphan! It was very good I felt kind of sorry for Marco because his game was a good match to Paradorn’s but he was losing to him mentally. LoL, this couple was standing next to me and one of them said that Srichaphan beat Sampras and Safin at Wimby

Anyways after a while we went to see some practicing on court 1. I thought it was Harel Levy and Mark Knowles (not sure about him because he was standing sort of far). Blah a bit of a gap after because we went to eat

Anyways after that we went to see Oleg Ogorodov vs Harel Levy! This man stood right beside me and kept saying that Harel Levy looked like Sergio Garcia and than he asked me if Ogorodov was my boyfriend??? (it’s funny my friend and I were the only one cheering for Oleg, maybe that’s why the man skipped the fact that Oleg was twice my age… ) Back to the match Oleg was very focused at the beginning and playing well! His backhand was amazing! But he got very frustrated at the end and kept saying things to himself… we were standing really close so we pretty much could hear all the time he was swearing in Russian. He also kept yelling at the lines men in Russian I think the guy got really scared. Anyways I went up to the stand and I could see 3 matches at the same time (I cought on to a bit of Spadea / De Armas match). This other man kept asking me about Ogorodov (yeah we were the only ones clapping now…for him let alone cheering)…anyways suddenly in the stands guess who enters non other than Marco Chiudinelli and later on Hadad. I wanted to ask Hadad for a picture but he didn’t seem to be in the mood (his match was actually next after this one). But after standing there for about an hour I asked Marco for his picture. He was very nice even though he lost his match, he asked me if I wanted to take a picture with him or just him alone and like an idiot that I am I just asked for a picture of him (yeah without me ). But he smiled for me and yup hopefully I’ll scan this picture and post it like many others that I took. Marco probably thought I was stalking him because of all the time that I was waiting to get his picture (yeah I’m a real wimp). And I was the only one to recognize him because no one else seemed to know who he was, Oleg lost but he was still in good spirits, I didn’t get his autograph but he was really funny. I actually screamed once “Davay Oleg”… practically the whole crowd gave me this stare, they didn’t even clap for the man.

Anyways next we went to see what was going on court 1 they had this little contest with serves…and well I tried and I totally embarrassed myself…my serve was about 45 mph Yeah pretty bad.

Next up was Taylor Dent’s vs Hadad’s match, I watched most of it and took a lot of pics of Taylor he looked so huge in real life, he really scared me. I wasn’t too impressed with his game though it was pretty much just bombing the serve and Hadad kind of gave it away he just lost it mentally.

Then I went to see a bit of Andrew Nisker and Alex Kim’s match witch was very good I was impressed with Andrew he was showing some real talent. Some lady next to me asked me if it was Lleyton Hewitt

Than I went back and caught a bit of Bastl’s match. I took too many pics of him…way too many…very dodgy pics too , I’ll scan them all a bit later for your enjoyment.

Anyways after that I watched a bit of Wayne Black’s and Michael Russel’s match which was high quality but I kind of went off because I wanted to see the ATP vs Hockey pro game. On the atp team there was Roger Federer, Michel Kratochvil , Marco Chiudinelli, Thomas Johansson, Thomas Enqvist, Andrew Nisker, Roger Federer’s coach and more. I got the pic of Federer and Enqvist actually standing together! I think Marco saw me and he kept looking over and thinking I was a stalker. He was very friendly with Rogy and Michel though. Even though the Atp lost they played pretty good, I was surprised with Kratochvil and Marco. Anyways I took tones of pics and I got Roger Federer’s autograph and Marco’s too . There ends my day of high quality tennis. I missed Hyung- Taik Lee but hopefully I’ll get to see him play tomorrow!

P.S. And yes I missed so many exhibition matches but damn it my friend had to go home, actually so did I, so hopefully tomorrow I'll get to see a lot more...

Good luck to:
Hewitt, Youzhny, Safin, Robredo, Mathieu, Chiudinelli, Wawrinka, Davydenko, Ferrero, Grosjean, Kuerten, Andreev, Moya, Malisse, N.Lapentti, Corretja, Gaudio, Coria, Escude, Novak, Nalbandian, Canas, Zabaleta, Ferreira, Clement, Mirnyi, Kratochvil, Arthurs, Draper, Santoro, Llodra, Rochus brothers, Arazi, Nadal, T.Reid, Voltchkov, Hrbaty, Dancevic, Beck, F.Lopez, M. Lopez, Pless, Cherkasov … and many more!

I'm green with envy and I hope you'll have more good times to come. Hey, maybe I'll catch on tv. Do I have to watch out for a girl who is said to be stalking Lleyton? LOL!

When we drink, we get drunk.
When we get drunk, we fall asleep.
When we fall asleep, we commit no sin.
When we commit no sin, we go to heaven.
Sooooo, let's all get drunk and go to
heaven!

Thumbs up Many thanks

Fun report.

Glad you had a great time.

Attending a tourney is always so much fun, especially the qualies and early rounds where you can see a lot of not so famous but interesting players.
