Re: Nico in Roland Garros

Hola

I was in RG at the begining of the first week too, i only saw the first round match of Nico... but, by luck, on tuesday evening, he ate at my table Obviously, i almost wasn't able to eat anything with Nico facing me!
Anyway, i can swear i didn't put anything in his food but i know he wanted to go out after so maybe he didn't sleep enough before the 2nd round match

anyway, i have pics for you but i didn't upload them yet..

@Jule: i'll pm you today (if it works!)

Had 3 lovely days in Paris - Saturday, Sunday and Monday - a lovely entertaining exhibition match vs Gimelstob, a practice session on Sunday (hidden away on court 3) and then the marathon match on Monday.

It was very extreme conditions, wind, rain and sun, and when Nico had his 3 match points in the fourth set, it rained pretty heavily for the next 5 points and somehow Moodie held on. Nico was unlucky to lose the first set and it was equal in the second. He was probably the stronger player in the third and he was just so unlucky to lose the fourth. Thankfully after the mps in the 4th and the rain, Nico was able to come back strong and win the fifth pretty easily.

Needless to say, I had to sit on that court for nearly 5 hours (I even had to sit through some of the previous ladies' match to make sure I got my lucky seat - I have watched him win a match on that court before).

I have a fair number of photos from the weekend and once they are sorted I will try and get them loaded as quickly as possible.

This weekend Im having a mega session of photo loading. I hope to have the following players pictures uploaded from Miami.

Nico (of course), Henman, Federer, Nadal, Haas, Kiefer, Verdasco, Lopez, Rusedski, Murray, Sharapova, Mauresmo, Kirilenko, Clijsters, Henin, Hantuckova, Hingis ........

Sheena were you there for the Moodie match or just the Sluiter match. Unfortunately I had to return to London on the Monday night after NIco finished and speaking to him. Also did anyone realise that Nico's little brother Leonardo was in Paris?
Thnaks for your lovely report Sara . It's always nice to know a little more than just the results of the match .

^^ Sheena : I don't know if this will help you, but if you want to post a picture on this site, click on 'post reply', then the 'Manage attachments' button in the Additional options. Then click the Browse button to find the picture on your computer and then click 'upload'. Normally this should work and your pic should be visible in your reply

Sara : thanks for the report and for all the work you put into taking/sorting out/posting pictures! Great to hear Leonardo was there as well. Was anyone else from the family there?

Re: Nico in Roland Garros

I was there only for the match against Sluiter because I worked all the week. Unless, Wednesday morning I called my office and I said that I was sick...(it's a shame....LOOOOL)
For Leonardo, I took photos of the "lapentti's clan" but I don't know if he was there...

I'm sorry for my mistakes but I don't speak english very well...
