Wow Chris! Sounds like youu had a fantastic time! :applause: But, do you really want that Roddick autograph? :innocent:

Was absolutely fantastic thanks BGT  :)) as soon as I got the Roddick autograph I thought of you. Your guy is such a cool and good guy that you know I think I really do want that autograph  :)) also the fact its in my autograph book with Maria's on the other side of the page means its even better for me  :king:

I can't believe you chose chatting with Elena V. over meeting Babble! :shocking:

 :rofl_2: I was so hoping to do both, but was with Elena V and her coach a bit longer than expected, next thing I knew I looked at my watch when by the practice court with Elena V and it was gone 10:15am  :Confused: I tried the rest of the day to see Babble at various points but just ountn't see him in the crowds  :( but I must say spending that time with Elena V and her being so fantastic and lovely yet again was truly fantastic and a dream come true :cloud 9: :yahoo:

 :rofl_2:

Well, I was "there" where ever there was as our meeting place wasn't "there" any longer. I waited until 10:10 but realized it was doomed from the start. I looked for Chris at Schiavone-Azarenka, but me thinks he didn't want me in his face and avoided meeting me whilst Victoria started her Eastern block meltdown.



Anyway, Wozniacki is one annoying retriever. She's Michael Chang with blonde hair. Did she even hit a winner against Kuznetsova? What a wuss... :thumb-down:

Thats strange you say that because on the first day I was there I looked for that place but only 1 I could find was the plane made out of tennis balls so planned to wait tthere on Friday, then got side tracked. I too looked for you during Vika's match, as I was sitting on the opposite side to the players chairs, in the front row, right in the corner. Brill seats they were. I couldn't see you anywhere though :( Looked like Vika was well on her way to victory there, then it all went wrong and from being desperate to see you to give you the stick it was probably a good idea for me to keep my head down  :rofl_2: I was then on the balcony part of the Armstrong/Grandstand for the last 20 minutes of the Dent match once Vika's doubles had finished but couldn't see you there either :(

i'm so happy with Serena's win today. yay. It'll be interesting to see how she fares against Clijsters. I wish this were a finals instead of a semis though.

Oh and welcome back Chris! sounds like you had a lot of fun as your life goals were acheived.haha. :)

Thanks Wilson, and good to see you around too! It was so much fun, just a wonderful time in a wonderful city and fantastic tennis and so cool meeting and seeing my faves again  :king:

Elena V and Maria K lost their doubles match yesterday to Klybanova and Makarova 4/6 in the 3rd set to go out in the quarters  :(  :( such a close match this that could have gone either way and after the 2nd where Elena and Maria won 6/2 winning 5 straight games it seemed they could go through the 3rd too. But wasn't to be but 3 wins, and a very tough 1st round win where they were on the brink of going out when I was there is a great effort, especially since they haven't played that much together. So a lot to be proud and happy with  :)

To Kateryna now though. Well I'm just so excited to see Kateryna play her first ever Grand Slam quarter final. Monday's match was new territory for Kateryna and she handled it brilliantly so if she can do the same today, I see her coming through this match too. Be a very tough match as Wickmayer has a big and very good game. But Kateryna won their final at Birmingham last year so has good memories from there. Be a very exciting match this, and should be very close too. Be amazing if Kateryna can pull through this one and be 1 step away from a Grand Slam Singles Final :cloud 9: :swoon:

GO GO GO KATERYNA!!! :cheer: :cheer: :cheer:

Serena has been pretty much ignored so far, which is pretty unusual since a) this is a major and b) she's been playing some of the best tennis I've ever seen from her. Her match against Kim should be fun.

Bondarenko Vs Wickmayer match filled with (GASP) UE specially in critical moment. When serving to close first set 5-4, Wickmayer started t try some low success angle shots that make her lost the sets and gave Bondarenko to level at 5-5. So what did Bondarenko do when serving at 5-5?

Yep. She also gave the game away to Wickmayer by making few UE so Wickmayer lead again 6-5  and serve it 7-5.

First set wickmayer  19 winners and 20 UE (lots of UE at end of the game) and Bondarenko 8 winners and 17 UE.

OK - Seriously... A show of hands for anyone who picked Wickmayer for one SF?  - I thought now! :rofl_2:  And if you did - I need you to pick the next lottery numbers for me!

But good for her.  She took advantage of all the upsets and made it through to her first SF.

None of us will picked any of the 3 QF at the beginning of US Open 09. Wickmayer, Bondarenko and Oudin?

But they surely did take advantage of the meltdown mental of lots of women players and the double faults.

So lets wait and see, if this SF appearance will take Wickmayer to the next level of her game and we will see her in lots of QF and SF or more of future GS events. Or she will join so many players before her as one Slam wonder.

But for now, Belgium must be proud that they have 2 players again in semifinal of GS event after Henin retired and Kim comeback.

Go Oudin!  I'm so tired of the anti-hype hype!!!   ..-)
Good luck on the court is nice to have, but it's usually extraneous when playing against Baker.
