I met Ilia!

Hey everyone, I know I'm mainly a lurker here, but I just have an amazing story I have to tell everyone!

Okay, so as I posted in the news thread, Ilia played in the Top Gun tournament in Oakbrook, IL on November 17th and 18th. Since I play at that club, of course I went to watch the tournament. I'll admit, before seeing Ilia there, I had never heard of him before. But the first time I saw him, I was just floored. He looks even more amazing in person than he does in pictures!!

I got to talk to him, and take my picture with him (it's on my friend's digital camera, and I won't be seeing her for a while, but I hope that I will be able to post pictures in a couple of weeks). Being an idiot, I brought my digital camera, but forgot the memory disk, so I couldn't take any pictures! Anyhow, Ilia was so nice when we were chatting with him before his match and he was totally sweet and very handsome in person!

He just came up to me and started talking to me and I thought it was random guy trying to hit on me.lol. But no I saw his pass he introduced himself(I basically has never heard of him before) But yes he was flirting with me non stop.haah..until I finally obliged to come back and watch his match yesterday which unfortunetly got rained out...but my passes are awaiting for me wednesday when he'll hopefully play his 2nd rd match!! VAMOS ILIJA!! He was veryy hot and sweet in person.. a bit cocky..haha but it was funny.

Re: I met Ilia!

I typed some long thing yesterday, but then I deleted it because I have a big mouth and... TMI. I know he googles himself. LOL. So I just wanna say, I got to meet a lot of players. But Ilija was by far the coolest. He is just, rock n' roll. And he asked to be my friend on Myspace which is so fun. Myspace rocks

I hope he gets bigger. He needs to be higher ranked! His coach is nice too, but too boring compared to Ilija. Coach = nice, Ilija = CRAZY

Also, what's weird is I have been dating this Serbian guy who dated Miss Serbia, and she is close friends with Ilija, i found out. And another one of my friends from Bulgaria who played tennis at my school is one of his good friends, but of course I didn't know that, until I knew she was there at the tourney to hang out with all these tennis players. She knows EVERYONE

With each passing season, I discover new reason
SAMPRAS --> Rios --> KUERTEN --> Kafelnikov -->
Federer --> Hewitt --> RODDICK --> GONZALEZ -->
NALBANDIAN --> Benneteau --> Davydenko --> Mathieu -->
TURSUNOV --> Mantilla --> KIEFER --> NADAL -->
Karlovic --> Odesnik --> Stepanek --> Monfils -->
??

Hahaha he seems like the type.
Aw, that quote is soo Its too bad, cause like everyone says he's such a nice guy, a great personality and very talented too. He'd be marketable and I hope someone notices him before its too late.

You typed a long thing? Like Ilija gossip? Please share

Re: I met Ilia!

Hehe. Yeah, the quote was sad, so I took it down, haha. I wish his results are better, and I think it is 'cause of the sponsor thing. His results would be better, but I know the sponsor thing frustrates him. Despite, he is a very positive person. I love, I love. I agree he's soooooooooo marketable. He just has to keep on, keep on
