My day at the Ordina Open 2004

Hey all!

Today I did visit the Ordina Open today. I was really looking forward to it coz 2 of my favs players had to play. Sad that they had to play each other in the first match of the day. Yes, I'm talking about Guillermo Coria and Arnaud Clement. When I arrived at the tournament both were still practising. I first did watch Arnaud Clement, took several pics and then I walked to the court where Guillermo was. Ofcourse I took many pics there as well. But then it did start raining (for the first time today). Coria wanted to run away, but luckily he gave me an autograph before he left.
At 11.30 am the match of Clement vs Coria did start. The first games took a long time, but Guille had the better start. But at 2-0, 40-40 it did start raining again. That moment was funny, not too far away of court1 there was the place where the players were waiting till the match could start again. Guillermo was signing to the people (fans) on the court when he was standing there, he did even wave to us :cool:. When it did stop raining the players came back, but before they could even hit a ball it did start raining again :o even while they didn't like it they had to leave court again they could see the fun of it, and Arnaud and Guillermo were making jokes ( I got several pics of them with a smile on their face) of it. Luckily after a not too long rain delay they did come back and the match could be finished. There were a lot of unexpectable moments in the match. First I was scared a bit coz Coria seemed to have an injury (have many pics of that as well) but luckily he stay playing. Ofcourse this made me happy, and I started to cheer for him a lot. I shouted 'Come on Guillermo!' 'several times, and I'm sure he did hear it often :).
Then there came the funniest part of the match. Clement didn't like a decision of the umpire and started complaining. That took a looong time, so Coria decided to sit down. And Arnaud was still complaining, did sit down as well and then he did complain again. After a few minutes they were going to play again, but then Guillermo started to complain. And in the break between 2 games they (read: Guille and Arnaud) started to talk to each other. And they did get really mad at each other, still talking about that ball if it was in or out. (I got lots of pics of this moment, I'll post some of these as well).
Finally they could finish their match. It was a great match, and Guillermo did play really good.
Me and a friend of me did take a little break to eat something and went to the center court to watch the 2nd set of the womens final. But that was not really intresting. So when it was finished we left Center Court again, coz on court1 the next match of Guillermo did start. This match was not as good as the match vs Clement. but I guess that is coz both players had played a match in the morning already. But still I did like to see Guillermo again. Ofcourse I was shouting 'come on guillermo' again during this match, and it did bring luck coz now he'll play final tomorrow.
This day was really fantastic, I took 124 pics of Guillermo. I won't post them all, and it will several days before I will start posting them, coz the files are still too big. The ones who really cannot wait can pm me their msnaddress, so I can send some of the pics by msn already. I did like Guillermo a lot already before I visited the tournament, but now I like him much more! (ok I guess he'll never beat Federer on my favlist, but he's getting realllly close).

:bigclap: :worship: :bigclap:

I'm so glad you got to see Guille in person!! I think that sometimes all it takes is to see him right there in front of you to start really liking him. :)

And that fight between Guille and Clement was so funny. Why were they so mad? And did Guille look more than just 3 centimeters taller than Clement?

Oh, I have SO many questions to ask. :)

Thank you Yvo! :kiss: :kiss:

Nymeria
06-19-2004, 11:29 PM
Yeah even my friend did start to like Guillermo. She used to dislike him, but now she's a bit a fan of him as well.
Yeah the 'fight' was really funny, wait till you see the pics ;) :lol: I didn't look at the difference in height, should have a look again on the pics to see it :p
Please ask your questions if you have them, I don't mind answering them

Beautiful pictures!!

I still dont' understand why they started having a fight with one another and I wonder what language they were using to speak to each other. Neither of them speaks English very well

I like the picture of Clement being mad and Guille is shruging his shoulders. :)

06-20-2004, 01:15 AM
Thank you Legolas :clap2: :kiss:

Great pics, such a good quality ;)

As Star, I also like the pic in which Guille is shruging his shoulders, it looks like he's sort of trying to explain that's supposed to be logical to Arnaud. Funny one. ;)

Thanks for sharing :) The funny moment sounds incredibly cute! The pictures too...

MORE PICTURES! :D

It's nice to see a more friendly atmosphere on court, with abit of a humour in between. The tension of the French Open was thrilling and all but it killed my nerves.

Legolas, thanks so much for the pictures and the updates. Yeah, I wonder also what language they were using...


It was hard to hear everything, the fans were all clapping and shouting 'shut up and play'. But I've heard some English words :p.
Guillermo talked a lot in his matches, that was really funny coz nobody could understand him.

Nymeria
06-20-2004, 09:26 AM

Well yes it's a boys name, not even a real one, but a fantasy one. I just got that nick coz I'm obsessed with lotr and legolas ;) To make it a girls name I guess it should be Legolàse (I'm not sure about that, my Elvish ain't that good)
