Ok, let's go
I went to Valencia again this year to stay as a lineman, from Saturday of Qualys until Thursday coz i had to comeback to Madrid before Friday and on Thursday a lot of linemen leave the tournament cos the Schedule since Friday is smaller and they don't need such a big number of linemen.
The experience was incredible again, i arrived on Friday and i went with another lineman to pick our clothes and the tarjet that let us to enter to the Valencia Tennis Club.
This year the clothes were much better, TTK clothes, 2 t-shirts, 1 shorts, 1 cap, a pair of sport shoes, socks and a swatshirt, so now i will use the clothes to play tennis
Linemen have to stay in the club one hour before matches start, our boss give us a paper that tells you which is your team and the line you're going to work in, the first 2 days i was in the left baseline, it's a difficult one beacuse i'm used to stay in the laterals, but it was nice.
1st day was really tough, you work 1:30 and rest 35 minutes, and after lunch, with the sun being 1:30 on court is a nightmare
on saturday of qualies we started at 11:00 and finished at 20:00, a marathon day, 16 matches in 4 courts, i worked in Almagro vs Peric match, it was fine, noone could imagine Nico reaching the final 8 days later, i had to go to the bathroom with Tomislav after the second set, it was the first time i had to do and it was great, people looked at you as ohhh you're important!
the tougest match for me was in the second round of Qualys, Gimeno-Traver vs Sanchez De Luna, i was in a lateral line and when Gimeno served with an open serve, Sanchez with his position didn't let me to see the bounce so 2 times it was like oh i think is IN but i really didn't see it
Sanchez asked the referee to check one mark but touched (fortunately) the line so the referee told me from the chair, come on, keep it on
(post and continue)
