    Hey Bogie,

    You must have stayed really late after the matches as the stands are nearly empty in these pics. I stayed till about the end of the trophy presentation for the doubles championship and there were still a lot more people in the stands than in your pics. I think that was close to 8:00pm or so. I'm surprised that Andy Murray stayed much later since he said he had a flight to Memphis to catch that night.

    Nice pics though. :D

    Great pics of you and your friend with the players.

    I'm shocked that there's no one in the stands. no wonder How do these small tournaments survive? They should have a packed house. Too much else going on in CA (and on TV) I guess.

    It was packed during the matches that day. There was a large Croatian contingent in the corner all wearing red and white checkerboard shirts like their flag and holding a huge Croatian flag. Every time Karlovic won an important point, they'd all chant "Ivo, Ivo, Ivo.....!"

    Those pics were taken well after the matches and the award ceremonies were over.

    the ironic thing is that i was actually part of the croatian cheering section. i went into the match not really caring who wins just wanting to see some good tennis and my seats were right in the middle of the croatian cheering section+ i'm russian and i could understand about 80% of what they were saying as the languages are all very similar and the guys were awesome, so i just joined in and ended up being part of that croatian cheering section. if any of you guys taped the match, check to see everytime they show the croatians and you'll see me on the far right side every time.
