I forgot some tidbits yesterday.
The Sun has a daily feature where one player is discussed by several different people -- They are just little squibs. Anyway yesterday was about Dementieva. One fellow said that Fred Stolle had worked with her, and told him that Dementieva could serve great in practice. Her problems in a match were all mental.
Also when Kimmy was walking toward the practice court, a little girl ran up to her for an autograph. She smiled, said "sure" paused and signed for the little girl. It was a nice moment. No one else bothered her for an autograph. Such a contrast to Mayer who is very nice looking but is now registered in my mind as somewhat of a jerk.
Dulko and Jeff Morrison helped out with the school kids yesterday. They were both very cute. Jeff has skinny calves.
