Legg Mason 2010 is here!

Highlights of the day include getting an autograph by #3 seed Fernando Verdasco today.  Even when it started drizzling, he was nice enough to make sure every single kid there got a picture and/or autograph with him before he went into the locker room.


Also got to watch Kei Nichikori (Japanese junior) win in a tight 2nd set tie-breaker and close out the 3rd set against South Africa's Kevin Anderson.  Also practicing up close was Yen-chen Lu, Hewitt, Gulbuis, and Baghdatis.  Dimitry Tursenov - very funny blogger!! also came out to practice and take a photo-opt with the kids.

Update: I was also able to secure some VIP Parking passes for Lot A, this week's sessions (thanks Luke!)  I have a temporary banner for my car until the official www.JCTennis.com stickers arrive.  Let me know if you see my G37 there =)

My tournament (8/1) photos are here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/demiace


It was a great day for tennis today; the weather was perfect most of the morning and afternoon with the rains only lasting a hour or two, action quickly resumed on court. There were a lots of kids and parents coming in for Family day at Legg Mason.  I saw a lot of quick start tennis classes on the clay too.  Thanks again for all the volunteers and organizers who help make it a great experience for all the little ones.

Feel free to add your comments and maybe I will see you there this week!
