I guess it depends if you're hot or not ...if you're hot trust me a lot of the players would love you to walk up to them and say Hi baby.

Just kidding.

No, I didn't see it. It's just what he started to tell me in an IM, then we got sidetracked on other matters. I think he just played really well and beat him, unlike Friday when he was just plain cranky (never bet on a jmg match before noon).

I don't worry about jinxing Alex in this case. I didn't say that he will win. I have only stressed in my belief that this draw should give him confidence and belief that he should win. If he doesn't win...then he doesn't win. He'll win the next match he plays. And I'll keep believing that. As I said in one of my earlier posts if this week isn't his turnaround then it could happen next week or in a few weeks or a few months.

And maybe you didn't mean it this way but I've also been around this game for a LONG time. It's not like Alex is the first person that I've liked to watch play. He is, however, the first person that I've actively supported. It doesn't change the fact that I'm aware of what can & should go wrong. Does that mean I should sit here and be a hypocrite and say what people think I should? "I believe in Alex but..." Not going to happen.

I guess you're just the better person, Fee

Re: Main Draw

I don't see it as a tough draw though. Everyone else does. Might have to give Kenneth a bit more credit (after today) but that's about it.

I understand that it's your personal pregorative to not approach any of the professionals but also understand that a little bit of true encouragement (not the "oh you're so cute" kind...the kind that tells him/her what you think of how they play/compete) from a supporter/stranger can help a bit. I met Alex just by approaching him shortly after a match in 2002 (had been following his results and "silently" supporting him up til then) and telling him what I thought of how he plays. I didn't think that short conversation would lead me to where I am today .

Anyway, I understand your position. I just want you to know that there is a happy medium . Personally, I steer clear when the autograph hounds are around and those certain females that seem to be on a mission
