Re: AUSTRALIAN OPEN 2010, vamos for the 2nd Final in Melbourne

Loved the match today, scary, but so much fun!

Have to say, that I found out today what the Chileans went through. I had seats right next to the large section, and firstly let me say they made us feel like one of them for those few hours, and I couldn't complain about their behaviour at all! They did random bag checks for flares, which I thought was a good move, but they did it with about 20 security guards which was ridiculous, and they searched me because i have olive skin closer to the Chileans, but not my friend as they told her she was 'too white to need to be searched'. I've never been racially discrimiated against before (I'm of white Maltese background), so it was really strange, because only they were searched based on race. They also had their huge flag confiscated and apparently some guy had a whistle taken from his finger and bled (I can't verify that last part though). I don't think the way these fun loving people were treated was fair, and I agree with the sign they had saying 'we are innocent'

That is just... insulting. But I guess it doesn't surprise me. I saw people staring at me as I were some kind of terrorist in Europe... just because I'm too olive-skinned and too brunette... and too Latin American.. if you know what I mean. A Brazilian girl who travelled with me was stopped at the airport just because the color of her skin.

But anyway and back on topic... puño cerrado y adelante!

Re: AUSTRALIAN OPEN 2010, vamos for the 2nd Final in Melbourne

you gotta love the chilean fans! It just makes the game so much funner. When the chileans play here in Miami I go with my chilean shirt and cheer them on. The "We are Innocent" sign is hilarious! Funny how much security were around the chilean crowd even after they left the court. hmmm.

VAMOS FERNANDO GONZALEZ!!!
ALSO GOOD LUCK TO NICOLAS MASSU AND PAUL CAPDEVILLE!!

Re: AUSTRALIAN OPEN 2010, vamos for the 2nd Final in Melbourne

Loved the doubles today! Gonzalez has so much personality, and it was lovely to see. A drunk group of Aussies were being idiots and kept demanding a wave from him, which he provided multiple times, and then they went on to yell out that he had an ugly head (which is so not true), and 'to go and suck an enchilada' (which I have to admit I laughed at). But what really got me, was that they refused to shut up, were saying offensive things, and not one security guard in sight! But Gonzo and Ljubo managed to fight and have fun on court, and its been great to see him. I don't have the right ticket to see his match against Roddick tomorrow, but hopefully I can see his doubles on my final day at the tennis on Monday. Gonzo's now my #2 favourite

Not one security guard because they were Aussies. Simple as that.

Amen to that.

On the other hand, I can't get why people need to waste their energies insulting players they don't like. If you don't have anything good to say, just shut up... or go to cheer for the one you like. Simply as that.

Re: AUSTRALIAN OPEN 2010, vamos for the 2nd Final in Melbourne

Its been strange because i've been really hyped up about coming home and watching the match on TV (I can't afford the tickets for the night match), and his match is all I've been thinking about despite being at the tennis myself. I really hope he beats Roddick. Hopefully I can see his doubles tomorrow on my last day at the tennis
