Default Photos from the tournament

I just want to share my photos from the tournament. I went on Monday and had a blast.

I want to go tomorrow, but only if I can get a seat at box level. I forgot about buying my ticket for Tues on Monday and by the time I thought about it at the end of the Malisse/Lee match, the box office was closed. I do want a good seat to watch James play. The rest I could care less about. Mardy Fish and Taylor Dent play Tues night, but with Taylor's penchant for retiring, I'm not sure if buying a ticket for the night session would be worth it. He's a hottie, but his matches are best left for tv viewing due to his unreliability (same could be said about Fish considering the way he retired last week). Andre also plays Tuesday night, but I'm not as much of a fan anymore after watching him act an ass with a ball boy during the celebrity tennis match Monday night.

my pics: http://home.comcast.net/~retroarts/tennis/index.html

I posted the low res version of the pictures, but I do have very high res versions available (each image is about 2.5 mb), so if one strikes your fancy, I am willing to give you the high res version untagged so you can get it printed.

I took pictures of every guy that looked like tennis pro, so that everyone could see their favorite. I only recognized Dent, Blake, Ginepri, Karlovic, Cahill, Agassi, Bryan twins, Joanna Garcia, Lee, Malisse, Ashley Fisher(who was kind enough to tell me his name and seems like a very sweet fellow) and Travis Parrot. The other people, I don't know who they are, but took snaps of them as they exited either the court or the player's lounge entrance. If you can ID them, that would great.

Nice job But in your pic of Kerr/Parrott's match, the scoreboard says Erlich/Ram vs Beck/Koenig??

Great pics...did you happen to see Mardy Fish?? There was speculation that he might withdraw due to his wrist problem (he retired from his match in Indy).

No, I didn't see Mardy. He is supposed to play tonight after the Agassi/Lisnard match, so I assume he's in LA. Who knows if he'll actually play though, since he's so 'delicate'. I'm not spending any money on night tickets to see him or Taylor play.

Sorry, no sweetheart. I missed that match. Sorry.

Someone watched Jim Thomas pictures and he plays tomorrow, so I'll try and get some photos of him. He plays on the Grandstand court and I have a box ticket, so hopefully I can get a seat that allows me to get great photos.


Are there any other player photo requests? I'll try my hardest to get photos.

Here are my day 2 photos:

Default Re: Photos from the tournament

Here's my observations from today.

Graydon Oliver: He was tense from the moment he stepped on the court today to the moment he left. He barely cracked a smile. His wrist was bothering him and he had the trainer come out and wrap it. His doubles partner was Dominic Hrbaty; Hrbaty proved to be the weakest link in match against Karlovic and Hernych, because his multiple unforced errors ended up costing him and Graydon the match. They lost in straight sets, something like 5-7,5-7. In the second set, they had a break, but unforced errors evened things.

Umpire Norm Christ was being followed around by cameras all day. I wasn't sure what it was for.

Tripp Phillips is very cute and likes to flirt. After his match with partner Jim Thomas, he sprinted up the steps and started chatting with this cute blonde girl. He seemed to really enjoy the conversation. He is definitely aware of his good looks and their effect on women. He doesn't mind using them at all. Jim Thomas is super nice and extraordinarily unassuming. I get the sense that he's a very decent person.

Xavier Malisse dropped in on James Blake's practice session with some sort of ice pack strapped to his inner arm. He walked on the court, showed it to James, and they both laughed. Then he walked off, rejoined his girlfriend who had been waiting for him, and left. Later that night, he played a great match against Tommy Haas and took out the defending champion after playing a lackluster, error filled first set. He defeated Haas in three sets. In the second set, he jumped to a large lead, struggled a bit as Haas regained some footing, but finally prevailed by raising him game level. Malisse seems to be a genuinely very nice person and treats everyone very politely. He is very much the gentlemen. He and James Blake make a fantastic doubles team.

Chela came out after his three set match with Tursanov and graciously signed autographs. The he and a security person went off to the food court. Early, I had spotted Hrbaty buying lunch there, as well as Jonas Bjorkman. Bjorkman is quite handsome in street clothes. He was buying Chinese food and sampling some different meats before making a choice. He was very nice to the food service girl and had no sort of diva attitude at all.

James Blake practiced today wearing an orange shirt. I'll have to call him the 'Orange Avenger' from now on. He signed autographs after practicing and seemed very much on autopilot during that process as if his body was there, but his mind didn't want to be there and was in a completely different place. He gave off a nice vibe, signed every autograph, gave programmed answers, etc; no fan left dissatisfied.

Andre Agassi arrived at the practice court with 2 burly body guards. The guards told the sparse crowd to,'Make way.' Once Andre was on the court, he retreated to the furthest corner away from the crowd, which was pleasantly shady, sat in a chair and talked on his cellphone. After that, he hit with Paul Goldstein, Dmitri Tursonov, and his coach Darren Cahill. Darren still has a very lovely form; too bad injuries made him retire so young. Andre never once looked at the crowd.

Vince Spadea arrived at his doubles match drinking a Sprite soda (for those not in the USA, its a sugary carbonated drink). I found that odd. His partner was Martin Gonzalez of Argentina, who seemed a very nice chap (he accidentally hit a guy on the other team twice and raised a hand to apologize each time). I got the sense that he and Vince were not friends at all. Vince didn't acknowledge Gonzalez much on the court, he didn't do the hand slap thing that all of the other doubles teams at the tournament do after shots. For Vince, Gonzalez was merely a tool to help him play doubles.

Amir Hadad lost to Richard Mello in singles. Hadad seems very chubby for a professional athlete. With his build, he's better suited to football. On court, he was whiny at times. He also threw his racket. Mello quickly romped through the first set thanks to a large number of unforced errors from Hadad. Hadad doesn't play high percentage tennis at all. He wants to hit the perfect winning shot, instead of concentrating on getting the ball in.

Cyril Saulnier teamed up with Grosjean for doubles. Cyril has beautiful light blue eyes and is overall an attractive man. He's much taller than Seb. They look funny playing together. Cyril is a nice man who was a bit baffled by all the fan attention after the match. Sebastian very quickly left the court after the match accompanied by a tournament official. He didn't want to interact with fans at all. I thought he might break into a sprint as he exited the court; he even gave an anxious look back over his shoulder as he scampered away.
