Re: Oh My Buddah!!! :O he is back.... let's chat ;)

I know what you mean, Carla. I went to IW 2009 because I knew it was my final chance at seeing Amelie Mauresmo (my fave women's player) live, but the credit card ball afterwards was

Too bad I'm totally broke this year or I'd go to IW again to see Delpo. I wasn't a Delpo fangirl back when I went to IW 2009(barely knew anything about him except that Feds had double bageled him at AO that year ) and now I regret not getting a chance to see him live then

Live tennis is lots of fun unless you dislike the heat of the outdoor courts in North America. Last tounie I went to was Cinci 2007 and Delpo was not yet a household name so it was easy to get to see him. Now I am 5'3'' so you can imagine when I walked past him how small I felt.

Me too Sue, I'm 5'3.75" (the three-quarters of an inch is very important to my self-esteem ) and I felt positively tiny just watching Rafa and Fed practice and play. Can't imagine what it would be like to stand next to Pony.

Also it was hot as hell in the desert that year. I felt like I was going to faint in my front row seat on Center Court. I'm not used to that heat since we have a very temperate climate up here in Northern California.

I always wondered about american hard courts because it looks insanely hot and some matches can be really long, to sit in that heat.

Yes summer in Cinci and Montreal and Feb/March in Miami were hot hot hot. I most likely will not get back to a tournie since the heat bothers me even more now. Besides so much nicer to watch matches in the comfort of my own home. And my oldest set up a big screen projector in our basement connected to the internet so..............much better watching on the wall

Ya to be honest I got a little bored during some of the matches without being able to chat with other fan(atics) online Only during matches not involving my faves, of course. During the Amelie match I was screaming my lungs out LOL.

True, I have friends I watch most tennis matches with. Watching it live without squeeing/screaming over each point would be kinda empty If I do manage to get to a tourney it would be Queens/Wimbledon and luckily our hottest weather isn't that bad!

Re: Oh My Buddah!!! :O he is back.... let's chat ;)

Bye Sue!

So whom do we want to win tomorrow btwn Davydenko and Beck (Delpo's potential 2nd round opponents)? At first I wanted Denko so Delpo could get some revenge for WTF '09 but Denko's actually playing really well and is not such a good match-up for Juan, so now I kinda want Beck to win. It will be nice to see a Tsonga/Denko match-up in the SF this week.

Nice to talk to you Sue

Beck. Davydenko is on good form at the moment and I don't want him to overwhelm Delpo

I agree, Delpo needs to keep the momentum from Rotterdam going, so I'd like him to at least make SF this week in Marseille.

Exactly. As much as I like Tsonga, I really want Delpo to win should they meet.
