Had 3 lovely days in Paris - Saturday, Sunday and Monday - a lovely entertaining exhibition match vs Gimelstob, a practice session on Sunday (hidden away on court 3) and then the marathon match on Monday.

It was very extreme conditions, wind, rain and sun, and when Nico had his 3 match points in the fourth set, it rained pretty heavily for the next 5 points and somehow Moodie held on. Nico was unlucky to lose the first set and it was equal in the second. He was probably the stronger player in the third and he was just so unlucky to lose the fourth. Thankfully after the mps in the 4th and the rain, Nico was able to come back strong and win the fifth pretty easily.

Needless to say, I had to sit on that court for nearly 5 hours (I even had to sit through some of the previous ladies' match to make sure I got my lucky seat - I have watched him win a match on that court before).

I have a fair number of photos from the weekend and once they are sorted I will try and get them loaded as quickly as possible.

This weekend Im having a mega session of photo loading. I hope to have the following players pictures uploaded from Miami.

Nico (of course), Henman, Federer, Nadal, Haas, Kiefer, Verdasco, Lopez, Rusedski, Murray, Sharapova, Mauresmo, Kirilenko, Clijsters, Henin, Hantuckova, Hingis ........

Sheena were you there for the Moodie match or just the Sluiter match. Unfortunately I had to return to London on the Monday night after NIco finished and speaking to him. Also did anyone realise that Nico's little brother Leonardo was in Paris?
thanks for your report too sara
