All praises to The Mighty Ace 8) 8) 8)

That was great, I loved it!! Wish I was there!!

BTW, the young Felix is awesome!!
thanks. Curiously, I had never heard that name before. He looks young. Unlike Monfils, he is pretty serious on court.
Yeah, you have to make it one day. So much history.

I guess it's still raining??
:(
it's been raining. A light continuous rain. That's not preventing locals and tourists to stroll down the streets, umbrellas in hand. I was one of them. Rain or shine, this place is so tourists friendly. Loving it.

lo, OMG, Ace2Ace, you have definitely made my day with this blog. I have been laughing through it all. Your refusal to know anything about the ATP :lol: :lol:
I owe you for sitting through Venus' 3 hour match on clay. You should prepare for Wimbledon, Serena has already moved on :wink:

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
