Hey Donkey. Sorry for the late reply....really tired after the two weeks tennis (I went to Beijing for China Open and then back to Shanghai for the Masters). I was lucky to just meet him on the road to the training courts. He was walking alone after the training session, and i suddenly recognized him. I thought he didn't know me although we talked a little by email when he came to Beijing in 2006 for playing the China Open, so I just mentioned your name, and said that you are one of my friends, obviously he is very familiar with your name and smiled when I mentioned you. And he still remembered the China Open in 2006 that I told him in the email at that time if he could pass the 1st round, then I would arrange to fly to Beijing to watch the 2nd round match, but unluckily he lost in the 1st round by the influence of jetleg
Well, it was his birthday during that tournament, so I let one of my friends in BJ send him a little birthday present saying happy birthday to him, and he remembered that as well. So you see that we just talked about some old memories
And then I promised to him that I would go to watch his qualie match that day.
He played two good qualie matches, but just bad luck in the 1st round main draw match that he had some wrong linecalls which annoyed him a lot. He definitely had some chance to snatch the 1st set, but missed unfortunately. And in that match, Bellucci controlled the match rhythm more.
Still good and happy experience to meet him and watch his matches. He is really nice and sweet!
And yes, I took quite a lot of photos this time (finally got the chance!), will post them later when I clear my camera.
