Good, its always nice to hear people enjoying my hometown!! I have been going to the tournament since i was 12 (10 years now!!)--originally to watch Sampras--i quickly learned where the coaches sat, etc. so i definitly saw you. I was at all but one Kiefer match... I dont remember what day it was but he was playing at the same time as Malisse and i LOOOVE Xavier (I speak some french so i cheer for Malisse en francais). Unfortunatly i watched the trainwreck that was Malisse's Indy visit... @ least he did a bit better in Doubles. The auction was really great though, a lot of fun... I kept telling my mom to bid on Kiwi and Ginepri... if only she'd listened we'd have tix to the open. Ginepri is really great, i have kept in touch with him for a couple years via his website and email. So i was glad if it wasnt Malisse or Kiwi that it was Robby. Anyway, im rambling. I sit over in the West stands (where the players come out onto court) in fact i sit right next to the tunnel where the players walk out. From your angle i would've been in the section farthest from you to your left, right next to the tunnel, about 4 rows up from the court, first or second seat from the tunnel (i attend with my mom in the evening and sometimes she sneaks in the isle seat)... i have very long naturally blonde (straight
) hair... and probably looked like a lobster. b/c of that sun i was fried most of the week.
im soooo jealous that you got to see and talk to him. I wanted to so badly. I visited a friend at the Hyatt and wondered if he was staying there but the Westin is nicer so its good to see u both stayed there
Did u watch his doubles match on Saturday?? As i was leaving the parking garage i went the back way past the track thats next to the tennis center (i used to play there so i get prime parking) and i saw Kiwi jogging down there for a run directly after the match. Crazy eh?? i so wanted to say "bon chance en L.A." buuuut didnt think he'd take kindly to an interruption.
Thanks for making me feel so welcome everybody!! Its nice to finally chat with people who arent only cheering for Andy Roddick!!
