Bangkok siesta

I have been here for a week actually...I came all the way from Jakarta, Indonesia...It was great seeing Jiro - the best tennis fan of Thailand...I met several local players whom I know very well...I met Tammy's father, Victor...

Too bad that 3 top seeds withdrew but I was thrilled to watch other players: Delic though he was not Delic-ious this time since he lost to Meffert...Verdasco, Karlovic, Haas, Becker, Berdych, Lindahl, Wang, King, Tursunov etc...

I had chance to say hi to Nando and asked about his family restaurant in Madrid...Tursunov said in the interview that until his 2nd round, he could not say that he was happy in Bangkok but I thoguht he would be if he won the tourney...

The tourney is impressive in terms of organization...out of the stadium you can find Mc Donald, local S & P bakery, Baskin Robbins, Subway sandwiches, tennis related counters such as Adidas, Nike, Yonex, Wilson, Fischer, Lacoste, Fila etc...If you go to the next building, there are more variety of good food...Japanese, Italian, Korean etc...yay, be fat and be merry...:p

I liked when I saw players got mad...like Nando, Karlovic, Haas, Spadea and others...

Sure, I plan to return here next year...
