Yes i think i have to go. :) who wouldnt go? what kind of tennis enthusiast would i be if i didnt go. Ive been at job 3+ years, never been reprimanded for anything, i think its time to take the dive. But 15 euros for one hour :confused: Im going, and nothing you can say will stop me.

Of Course Michelle, I will be there. Can I pack a sandwich lunch for you?

Yeah, I have to go, just to be inside and feel the nice ambiance. I have no camera today but so what. Im only taking 24 shots or so this year, so no extensive photos from me. I'll give you the same annoying bad match reports, player gossip, what are they wearing etc etc. :angel: I will be back about 2h45 i hope, and hopefully nobody will notice a thing.

So you're in charge of play-by-play, I'll be photo journalist...

And thanks for the sandwich offer, but I'll be chugging cafe long...my surefire jetlag remedy.

Anyone else notice that the weather forecast has changed for the 456th time in the past five days????

See ya there! Your challenge is to try and find me :)

FrogBurger back here with Sesame Street News! GOSH I FEEL LIKE A THIEF! That was just outstanding: I took the metro, it took about 12 minutes and then I ran about 2 kilometers with my backpack, maybe longer. bought a ticket and i was in. First i watched about 4 games of Cara Black v. Meusberger. Cara always dresses the same. They both looked quite good with Meusberger applying more pressure it seems at least she had harder groundstrokes. Cara hit a lot of slice backhands and some defensive slice forehands when needed. she rolls the ball back a lot. Then i went to the other side down by the ramps at Suzanne lenglen. Tina pisnik came out. i didnt recognize her cause she has thick Blond hair (very pretty), but then i saw her sign an autograph for a kid and i recognized her signature and i said hI Tina you changer your hair. she signed Coocoocachoos photo from his picture thread earlier this year. Then i watched some of the Bammer match against a woman with along last name and a hyphen. jesus she could make rain with that ball toss. Excellent exchanges, a few at net too and the match was almost over at 5-1 but she fought back. then i watched some of the Stosur/Ashley match.... shit i'll come back with more, i have some work to do, the nerve of them.

Cribs: it was awesome. weather is beautiful, no clouds in the sky. very few people, tons of ice cream and lots of smiles. Best hour i ever stole.

Back just a half hour ago from RG. Great day. I didnt watch entire matches but choose to watch sets. I watched the first set of the James Blake match. Also saw the exciting parts of the Clarisa Fernandez match. and many others. Binerova v. Gubasci was really exciting and turned on just a point or 2. Otherwise for info sake, i only see a few men and women in the main draw. Gasquet, Mathieu Safin Henman Ascione Tsonga Santoro and Vento-Kabchi on the womens side were basically most of the players in the main draw that I saw today. Malisse was present but I didnt see him. I know Andy Practiced at 11 and that Youzhny Henman and a few others practiced but thats about it. I didnt see andy or Youzhny. If someone wants to the auto that Tim Henman signed today its my second so you can have it. Ill try to write more later if youre interested in the tennis shots i saw today but suffice to say that the matches were awesome and the energy was high. There was lots of outbursts from the players in terms of yelling and stuff so it was very thirlling.

Wish I could get to RG in my lunch break, but that would have to be a big lunchbreak of a whole day. ;) Don't think my boss would be to happy about that.
