Autographs At The Open…

January 20, 2010

Australian Open has been fantastic so far. Although del Potro and Federer almost gave me heart attacks.Doesn’t help that del Potro was at the casino at 11pm last night!

Managed to get a few autographs. James Blake, Juan Monaco, Sam Querrey, and Nikolay Davydenko were only too happy to sign. There did seem to be one snooty tennis star though. This person was standing doing nothing waiting for Davydenko to finish using the practise courts. A child was hanging over the fence with a tennis ball seeking an autograph. The player completely ignored her. It isn’t like there were fifty people wanting an autograph. There was one kid.

Who was it? Some big famous star? No. It was Laura Robson.

She’s friends with Andy Murray. Go figure.

    Would you like to “guest blog” on my blog since you are at the AO? Would be great to give my readers a first-hand account of the action.

    Let me know.

        Whatever is easier on you. I just watched the Isner/Monfils match. Crazy but high quality. Or I can just always link to a post you think is good.
