|The famous forehand|
After watching Rafa for about 15 minutes, I saw on Twitter that Venus was practicing on Court 17 which was on the complete opposite side of Melbourne Park. So I booked it over past Hisense Arena to watch Venus. I've seen Venus play quite a lot but the last time was 2008 Olympics (when she lost in the QF to Li Na) and it's so fabulous to be so up close to the players when they practice.
|Well hello six pack.|
|I wish I actually was this close!|
But I did get this one of Rafa's pretty face up close. And then some stupid girl grabbed Rafa and really pissed him off. Seriously people, you piss off the players and you'll ruin it for everyone!
I got so lucky though that after this Rafa came back toward me and I just stretched my arm out over some dude's shoulder and shoved my programme in Rafa's path. And I got his autograph! I wish I could say I was face to face with Rafa but I didn't get my chance today.
|Come back Juan Martin!|
Today was the first day I met the lovely @Rosie_Emma45 and she made sure I went to see her fave Andrea Petkovic play at the night session. We had great seats and despite my interest in watching 'Petko' play British Anne Keothavong it got so cold I had to leave. Lesson learned for the rest of my days at the Aussie Open -bring jeans as it can get cold at night.
