Don't worry girl, you will continue to vicariously "stalk" him as long as i live in the same town with him...

Anyway, i really hope he'll fare better in Basel next week. Points or no points, a few wins will do him good.
Mrs. B, you're the greatest LOL, perhaps if you just kept putting in a few good words with his dad . . .

He actually has quarterfinals points to defend, but no matter. Hopefully playing in front of a home crowd (where 22% of them think he can win it) will give him the extra boost of confidence he needs.

I think he'll be okey. When he played doubles with Rogi in Gstaad he played well and he was the one prodding Rogi on. Did i mention it to you before that i took some lessons from his coach before? His name is Vojko Fetsch. Nice guy.

Well i'm sure i'll have another little chat with Krati's old man when i see him again....

Well Bern is really a small town, like everybody knows everybody so in the tennis circle it is pretty small.

I mean i already played many years in Flamingo (the tennis center) and Krati was playing the local tournaments here and won them and now he's among the world's top players so people here are proud of him, and i think he's still the same nice quite guy. But i don't know him personally. Last year i saw him at Starbucks (we got one here) and he was sitting upstairs in a corner (with a chick), and he looked pretty normal and unobtrusive...

hehe, fate's little helper, eh? we'll see about that...

Hello, all!

A wonderful person named Maria posted some pictures of Micha from Bucharest in my Yahoo group. So I'm going to post them here because they are really good pics.

She also gives me a bit of hope, because she said that she was able to meet him & had lunch with him at the tournament at Bucharest. I don't know how she managed to get all of this, but I bet it's not the same way (or for the same reason ) that I'd like to.

Nice pics, Hackie!

Maybe you'll be able to have lunch with him too in the near future?

Hackie, that could have been anybody's match in the 3rd set, but she really did hang in there. Lindsay had match point in the 2nd set tiebreaker, too bad she couldn't close it. But credit to Patty. And the homecrowd helped her a lot.

I hope this is a sign of things to come for Rogi in Basel...
