Day Five.

I got home late from the site. It was a long long day. I don't really have time to write about everything that happened.

I saw the last two games of Kimmy's match.

Gael Monfils vs. Jeff Morrison. The best thing about the match was that a roadrunner somehow found himself on the court right up against the net and he didn't know what to do. Morrison took control and herded him off court chasing him at the last, I suppose thinking he would...

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...

Day Four

Before dragging myself home from a very long hot day at the tournament, I stopped by Statler Foods…. A downscale grocery store in the valley. There are nicer stores… Ralphs… Jensens… even Vons… But anyway it was handy and all I wanted was a bottle of wine. So, I’m stumbling out of the store with my purchase and nearly run right into a vaguely familiar woman carrying a child and speaking German. (something about grandma) It was STEFFI GRAF! There she was with...

Day Three.

This wasn’t such an exciting day as yesterday. There was only one match I wanted to be sure to see, and a lot of players I wanted to get a look at. So I just went from match to match and got little peeks at a lot of players. I did see Kim’s match from beginning to end, unfortunately, that entailed me seeing more of the Irvin/Granville match than I wanted.

[gossip] The word around the tennis site was that Safin broke several rackets while practicing...

Day Two

I got to the site really early today. I parked in my usual place today and had a nice time chatting with the parking lot attendant. She’s the same one every year. She’s French Canadian and she and her husband work down in Palm Springs in the winter and then in Alberta, Canada during the summer. She’s very nice and we’ve had fun over the years.

Oh, and guess what? They took down the bleachers that were by the practice court where you could sit and watch...
