The first... and def. not the last!

Today was the first time I ever went to a professional event in person.
Had a total blast!! It certainly won't be the last.
I'm kind of used to shooting digital photos of family and hockey players, so tennis was a bit of a different animal that I had to get used to.
Here are the results:
So I went to cheer on Jiri Novak, who I've rooted for for several years without actually ever seeing him. Since he now has a full head of hair, and had a buzz cut in the photo I had seen of him, I didn't even recognize him at first.
He's got a lot going for him. Despite his size, he really gets round the court -- got to one ball after slipping even. Very solid and a nice backhand. It was a pleasure to root for him!
Can't wait for my next event... whatever it may be.
