Andy arrived for his evening meet and greet in style. Andy spent an hour and a half, signing special blue Lacoste hats, posing for photos and having brief chats with everyone who showed up and purchased a Lacoste item. Many fans turned out for the event, including some dedicated souls, who had been waiting outside the store since 11.00am!
Making bets with sister-in-law, Ginger and accommodating everybody, there were some firsts for Andy tonight! One of these was signing an animal! A little dog, Chloe, wearing a tennis skirt was presented to Andy for signing, which he obliged before joking, “Oh, she bit me!”
Fans of all ages turned up to see Andy. One lady requested a photo of Andy with her baby. Initially worried he may drop the baby, who looked adoringly up at him; Andy secured his grip, and posed for the photo.
There were some of Andy’s younger and somewhat shier fans there who had to be coerced up to meet their idol, with Andy promising he wouldn’t bite
, and then contemplating what would be the young boy’s reaction if he made a scary face instead!
Before leaving, Andy took out the remainder of baseball caps, signing all of them to ensure every fan got an autographed memento. At around half past seven, Andy signed his last cap, and made an exit for his 8.00pm dinner reservation at the famous Nobu restaurant. Clearly a favourite among the tennis stars, as Maria Sharapova and Roger Federer also dined there.
Next up for Andy is a Parlux photo shoot Tuesday morning. Stay tuned to AR.com for all the latest!
