Re: The "One month to go before the REAL tennis season begins!" Grass Thread!

I like him in red too. I wish he'd play in red. I actually did a double take when I saw him in red walking to the practise courts.

I think he was just cautious with his serve. At the start of the practise he was barely hitting it at all and as he got more into it then he definitely was more comfortable serving harder. But it wasn't as hard as it usually is.

Also... pictures!

HI RE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks!

I didn't see his hair. He had his cap on for the entire time.

Edit: I use the Canon D40 with a 70-200mm lens on it.

Thanks holly I believe you now

adam was there too he said he thought andy's serve looked ok, that he was still hitting lots of aces/unreturnables (against Sam though.. ) and that he wasn't in the best mood afterwards

LOL I thought I saw Adam. I dunno, it just wasn't quite Andy serving out there. He hit a lot of serves into the net.

He wasn't in the best of moods afterwards AT ALL. Actually he didn't look too happy for the whole thing, but afterwards be avoided his 20-or-so fans and walked through the other court where they were also practising.

The results have shown."

Re: The "One month to go before the REAL tennis season begins!" Grass Thread!

Thanks for the pics Holly, they're great. Reminds me how much I need to get an SLR camera!

I was also watching Andy's practise, seems like quite a few MTFers were there. Did see Adam there, with his Tesco bag.
Agree that Andy wasn't serving great but that seem like precaution of course, so I guess we just have to wait and see how he goes. I wasn't there at the end (was over at the court next to it) but did see the little fan gathering waiting for him by the exit, tsk, naughty Andy for avoiding them. I guess he realised that they didn't have any babies among them and left disappointed.

Q. You must have so many different emotions going through your head. Was it like a rollercoaster for you?
STANISLAS WAWRINKA: Yeah, yeah, it's quite crazy..I never expect to win a Grand Slam.
I never dream about that because for me, I was not good enough to beat those guy.

Maybe the sky will fall?
