What a fun read! Thanks Ace :D

I wish I had time to write something similar in Madrid but my daily activities kept me way too busy from early mornings to late nights. Caja Mágica sucks you in, makes you fall in love with her and spits you out. My 10 beautiful days of tennis ended way too fast. But as the saying goes, next year more and better - ¡El año que viene, más y mejor! :D
yeah. Just take notes on your phone while going around. Much easier to add details later at the hotel.
Still nicely done. My head is always spinning from so much tennis that it is hard to keep my thoughts in order, let alone make notes about specific matches and players. Something I'm working on.
I don't know if you feel the same but for me tounrament days just go by to fast! They are much longer when you're watching on TV.

Maybe she said that and went to a different neighbourhood to not be spoted by press and/or fans :D

Felix = another Canadian teen sensation. C'mon, Ace, get with the program lol

Felix Auger-Aliassime

You know about Shapovalov. You know about Andreescu. Now get to know Felix, like the rest of the world has.

;)
go firmly to the window
and listen with deep emotion,
but not with the whining, the pleas of the coward;
listen-your final pleasure-to the voices,
to the exquisite music of that strange procession

yeah.. I had no idea who this Felix was.
And every time I saw the shapovalov name, it sounded like sharapovalov. I thought he was another Russian.
