Wink Olivier Patience anyone?

Hi...not sure if he already has a thread here but I couldn't see it. Just wondering if anyone has any info on Olivier? I saw him last year at Roland Garros but didn't pay all that much attention to him, however I saw quite a bit of him at the Aus Open this year and have decided I want to support him more

Vous pouvez me répondre en français aussi si vous voulez...or english...whatever.

thanks!!

Re: Olivier Patience anyone?

Someone tell him that he simply cannot go to Vina del Mar and that he is needed in Delray Beach, player hospitality will cater to his every need...

Thanks, Liz!
Could it be that you were taking pictures unobtrusively, I mean without him noticing??

I need a digital camera...

Of course not......he didn't even realise so it was ok. I had taken a photo of Paulo just before that and conviniently put it on my lap. Yeah, rock on.
