Haven't been here in a long, long time (since August) and glad to see people here are still their same, crazy selves! :worship:

Anyhoo, would like to share my pics with some of the players in Shanghai. My friend and I had breakfast at The Hilton one day and waited for the guys to come out at the lobby. :) Had pics of other guys...Murray, Bryan bros but not with us bcoz they were too much in a hurry to stop for a photo. Didn't see A-Rod though (so sad about that) and Tsonga. Enjoy the pics! :)




Gilles Simon. He's such a sweetheart!

Sorry, but Nikolay was such a snob that morning. Maybe bcoz he just lost to Novak the night before? Haha.

Don't know what Kiefer's doing there? Maybe he's a sparring partner of someone?

This is the first set of pics we had with Novak (where both times he didn't look at the cam!)

http://img357.imageshack.us/img357/1536/img0831bc7.th.jpg (http://img357.imageshack.us/my.php?image=img0831bc7.jpg)http://img357.imageshack.us/images/thpix.gif (http://g.imageshack.us/thpix.php)

After that, we stayed for a while at The Hilton cafe and while we were there, Novak came in and joined his team who were 3 tables away from us. Amit was there and he was walking near us. My friend said Hi, then he said Hi back.

Amit: Can I see the pictures that you have? (probably he saw us standing and running once in a while in the lobby, haha)
Friend: Sure. Here are the Bryan bros, but I only got their backs...
Amit: Their backs? That's not a good pic...
Friend: They were in a hurry.

Then, out of the blue, my friend says...

Friend: We're from Manila Philippines.
Amit: Oh? Nole plans to go there.
Friend/me (getting excited): Really? When? Where?
Amit: To this island....
Friend/me: Boracay?
Amit: No...
Friend/me: Amanpulo?
Amit: Yes, that's it.

Then Amit goes...

Amit: Nole! Nole! Come here!

My friend and I turn around to see Novak himself walking toward us. It took all of my willpower not to jump up and down right there! ;)
Then, Novak was there beside me and he asked us a few questions about Manila, Amanpulo, etc, etc. And before he left, we asked him for more pics (where he finally looked at the cam!)

This was the highlight of our trip! Abso-f*****-lutely!!! :cool::D

Amit took this pic, haha! He joked "2 beautiful girls and 1 ugly guy..." That's why Novak was smiling here more than the other pics we had with him.

Aw, thanks. :o

Wanted to ask him about the glasses too but was too shy. Maybe someone else can answer it for us? Novak looks cute with or without the glasses. ;) Plus, he was really super nice.

Most of the time he wears contact lenses, but sometimes he uses glasees.

Kiefer is the 2nd replacement player.

And thanks for the pics.

Sure did! ;)

And lemme just say, contrary to what other people think of Djoko, he was really nice. Actually saw him again at the Hilton after his TMC win and of course, some fans were there to wait for him. A few of them asked if they can give him a hug, which he willingly obliged. :D
