Finding Rafa -Day 3 with the eye at Australian Open
Just a real quick post, finally Day three "the eye" found Rafa! I would have to say this guy will go down as one the greatest and most popular players ever to play the game. He does not try to hide from the fans and he is practicing on the outside courts daily "the heart and soul " of the event.Watching him after practice he makes sure he signs a good lot of Autographs for his young fans and old ones as well :) Oliver Prisk travelling in our group scored the prize Autograph of Nadal.Vicki Rollinson even had the sweat of Nadal on her arm as he brushed by her.Vicki hasn't washed that arm since. All in all we had another fantastic Day at the tennis , starting off watching Thomas Berdych then watching a thrilling Match between Verdasco and Tipsarevic ..Janko had the match won...however the nature of tennis its not over till its over and Fernando will thank his lucky stars he lives to fight another day.This first week is a must for me its the busiest and the best week of all.We also saw Djokovic and Bernie also watched Monfils.Today we are setting our sights on Tsonga and Murray as well as David Nalbandian.Its been a great week for our juniors that have come along and each morning from 6am-7-30 we run training sessions focusing on the skills that they see daily from the World's Best.Well as I said I am late with my post the Tennis does catch up on you and hopefully I will get some more pictures and news up later tonight on Day 4.
