    Anyone going to this event? It features a slew of world-class players, including Kim Clijsters and Hantuchova, which are my favourites. I'd love to meet Kim's sister, Elke, she's a beautiful one! The name Elke sounds hot enough to me, don't you agree?


    check out the draw here

    Too bad it doesn't look like many here care for the women's game. I won't be seeing you there, wish I could, but have fun seeing the many great players and good luck hooking up with Elke, LOL!

    haha I started this thread a year ago. I am in New York now so of course I will not be able to make it. The draw will be out tomorrow. Stanford is a fantastic place to be this time of the year, have fun. If you want to get some fine Japanese food after the match, check out Miyake in downtown Palo Alto. Who knows, you might catch Kim Clijsters gorging on some sushi! :-D

    I will drive some of the players through next saturday. I don't know who from the draw I will drive until the player calls for a ride. Anything you want me to ask a specific player for you?

    Miyake? OK, I'll remember that. I live in Millbrae. I wouldn't be able to see the main matches. I will just see the qualifying matches tomorrow :neutral:

    a-hem..if you see Daniela H, tell her that she is well liked and doesn't need to wear overly revealing clothes or lose weight. I wonder if her family situation has been all solved (parent's divorce or health issues, I am not sure). She is talented I hope she becomes more aggressive to fullfill her talent. :)

    Yeah, be sure and ask Daniella about her parents' divorce. She'll LOVE that.

    Ask Clijsters if she's really using a pure drive

    Daniela is a private person. She hardly spoke in the car last year. She was more interested in playing with her mobile phone.

    I'll try to get a conversation going.

    Clijsters is friendly and open. I can ask her about her racquet.

    Clijsters will win this event very easily. Venus Williams and Lindsay Davenport are skipping this event for San Diego instead.

    She's also very moody-- chatty and friendly one day, withdrawn and ultra-serious the next.

    Ask her about her piano playing. That might start a conversation. (Do you speak Italian? That'll work, too. :) )

    I'm going to the event. I only have tickets for the SF and final though. I'm going to the night session. Hopefully Clijsters will be in that match. I'll also be at the Acura Classic and the JP Morgan Chase Open.

    I don't speak Italian, but I play piano. I can kick it off with this.

    Yesterday I drove Dechy a couple of times to/fro restaurant and hotel.

    Yesterday, it was extremely hot. I felt for the players...
    jasonbourne, are you a guy? I heard Steffi used to invite his 'drivers' to her hotel room from time to time. Obviously to discuss her tennis skills and tactic against Gaby, Seles etc.

    Hey Jason, do you know where the players are practising? Last year, Venus and Serena came over to the West Campus courts (near Lyman) and I was really impressed by their power. It might be nice if more of them came to practice this year, even though it means that we won't have spare courts for the next two weeks. Also, if you know of the best place on campus to watch the players practice, please let us know.

    AFAIK they will only practice on the West Campus courts or the multiple courts within the stadium. I usually drop them off between these two locations.

    From the comfort of your computer, you can view them live from here,

    Gundam, I did not drive Huntchakova this year. She lost too early. :(

    I drove Clijsters. She said she's using a PD.
