I have a guest pass for the BMW Open...

...as a guest of Lars Burgsmüller (thanks athie :worship: and Dirk Hordorff!).
Thing is, what is all the fuss about having one of these? OK, I get access to the players' lounge, but isn't that the place they least want to be pestered?

Anyway, I was there today and saw lots of players: Lars of course (he's :cool:, very friendly and chatty), Rainer Schüttler (hmph, not exactly accessible :( ), Tommy Haas (phoar, he was looking v hot and he wasn't even training :drool: , Alexander Waske (also :drool: what a cheeky smile), Sjeng Schalken and Raemon Sluiter sharing a table in the restaurant (Sluiter is pretty good-looking too in a dark stubbly way), Mischa Youzhny (with weird taping on his left leg, looked like a wax strip going down his calf :lol: ) training with Labadze (looks chubby, get into the weights room, boy!) and later with Andreev (looks like Kimi Raikkonen, the Formula 1 driver), David Nalbandian (ugh his hair, it's all stringy and greasy even before he gets near the court!), Nikolai Davidenko and a few others.
Will be there tomorrow again (actually could go every day since I have a week pass, but have to work :( ), match reports (maybe) to follow then!

:wavey:

No, only spoke to Lars to thank him for the guest pass. To be honest, I'm no use at going up to players and talking to them, I can never think of any suitable small talk. So I just wander round taking pictures :)

Anyways, enjoy all the matches and the great photo ops. Space Cowgirl! :wavey:

Of course :devil: it might be worth bothering them for that.
But I'd much rather see a tennis player in a nightclub when they're drinking beer and relaxing :rolleyes: I've known players to get kinda uptight before and between matches..... :angel:

No Alexander Popp?
I would've thought he might have hung around, kinda like a bad smell. A tall, good-looking bad smell.

Space Cowgirl, could you give Rainer a big birthday hug from me? I know he's not as accessible as he has been, but maybe you can try. Oh, and you can give Lars and Alex a hug from me as well! ;)

well alas Rainer's pretty much off-limits, as far as fan interaction goes :( . Lars is much more approachable.
I was there again today briefly, to see if there was any chance of play at all (it's raining buckets here). The restaurant was full of bored players: Schalken, Sluiter, Nieminen, Davydenko (with a dinky little VAIO notebook), Haas (still looking hot!), Jerome Haenel I think (has he got a shaved head, very tanned?), HT Lee and a few others I vaguely recognised but couldn't put a name to. Some were playing cards, others were surfing the net on their laptops (checking out MTF maybe ;) ). I felt a bit of a dope sitting there at the bar on my own, and when I didn't spot Lars anywhere decided to make a quick exit and go back to work. Oh well, tomorrow is another day!
