the Tennis in Geneva was great!!!The players who were there were Bahrami,Noah,Llhasek,Santoro,Boetsch,Becker,Federe r,some wheel chair players,Amelie Mauresmo and Manuela Maleeva!It really rocked!!!I managed to take some pictures also,about 33!So, i hope that they will come out well!Basically in the beginning, the players were warming up with some upcoming swiss players!It was great to see,and these youngsters are quite impressive nowadays, they hit the ball so hard for their age!Anyway, there were many doubles matches such as:Noah,Mauresmo-Mauela Maleeva,Boetsch.And there were of course singles matches where Federer played all of them!And he won every match!It is so amazing to watch him play, so light on his feet,such precision with his shots,and very talented!
The atmosphere between all players was awesome!They were all so relaxed and smiling ALL the time, it was great to see compared to very important matches,where they all stay focused!
Yannick Noah of course spiced the evening up with his sense of humour,we were all prctically falling off our seats, because he was so hillarious!
A great evening it was with a lot of good tennis!I will put the pictures up on my website, witha report of the match!Will keep you all posted!

Glad you enjoyed yourself Katie - sounds like fun! I thought I read somewhere that Carlos Moya was going to play at that exhibition? Did he play in the end or not?

Katie, wanted to thank you for posting your story at ClementsCorner. Bummer that the Arnauds weren't there :( Sounds like it was a blast just the same.

Yannick is a hoot, I'd love to catch a concert of his as well!

he's a great singer too!!!I'd love to spend the evening with him!
Carlos Moya was supposed to come yes, and so did Marat Safin, but they didn't, which was a REAL SHAME, but anyway, it still was a blast!One of the best exhibition events i've ever been to!
