Re: Look, you know, our draws are not rigged they are just unlikely. (pt3)

Isn't it strange? My pics of nadal were awful while I took good pis of nalbandian who I loathe. I wasn't even trying for good pics. I was just pointing my camera in his direction as a favor for a nalbandian fan. I think I was tryi g too hard for rafa and LilLo. Also malisse.

Thanks for the alert, Lee.

Stary, I am so sorry for Rafa. why is he skipping the AO?

And vmom, I forgot to tell you but I arrived in Coimbra on the 25th to a really cute postcard wishing me Merry Christmas

Did Nole win the Mickey Mouse tournament? I should check that.

It's not strange at all! I never take pics of Nole, I can't concentrate on droling over him and taking pics at the same time! Especially when I am watching him practice, I feel like taking photos is wasting a golden moment, when I should be paying as much attention as possible and trying to interact with him.

90% of the photos I have of Nole were taken by the people who were accompanying me at the tournament.

But, I don't want to interact with Rafa. With Rafa, I always think so many people want one of his autographs or his smiles or even a look -- that I just want to be someone who leaves him alone except for a picture.

I think I wanted too much of a close up, and I should have used another lens length and then cropped it for a closer view.

Well autograph doesn't mean much for me, although I was happy when I got one. But I want to interact, and I have done so quite some times with Nole, and it's something I will never forget.

But Nole does not get half the attention Rafa gets at least in madrid he doesn't

I think it's more normal for young people to want the interaction. More creepy when old people do it.

Djoko is surrounded by people at IW. I don't do a head count, It might not be as frenzied as with Rafa, but his practices are jam packed.

Djoko is now on my TV. Navy top with white shorts that have a navy stripe down the sides. White shoes. Understated red and white trim on the shirt.

Mucho and Nole are really good with this exho stuff Entertaining both with their tennis and artistic showmanship.

I wanted to mail out the cards for my US friends here but my head was too muddled after returning from HK.

And this is not MM tournament. This is an exho which pays much much better than MM.

I miss him But I decided not to watch him play until the AO. And not carry much until then. Which I have been doing.

He absolutely MUST win the AO though.

Has anyone watched Looper?

I am having a terrible headache now. Probably the result of allergy. Bad air quality over Christmas and it's windy today.

I had a crazy dance session with my two little cousins and my sister. I am rather tired now, but good tired

Hope you feel better soon
