This was where we celebrated Danie’s 50th birthday : )
I was too late to buy tickets for the main courts, so we had tickets to the grounds and all the other courts where they hosted the less important games. On 5 June they played the quarter finals on the two main courts, and the legends trophy on the other courts.
Djokovic was playing on this court.
and we could hear the people cheering for Nadal on this court.
The big screens on the outside are for the unlucky ones that could only hear the excitement : ) but…
we had so much fun watching the legends do their thing. I actually think they had more fun than us. They were entertaining the crowds, making jokes and showing their skills.
We saw Martina Navratilova playing in a game against Sanchez and Fernandez. My knowledge of tennis isn’t that good, but even I can remember these women.
The ‘joy’ and magic of clay courts…
feeling proud South African when we were watching this lady from South Africa…
Goran Ivanisevic… the big entertainer of the day. : )
Henri LeConte, Pat Cash… also having fun : )
The stars having enough fun to just do the work themselves
…and just to show that they can still play tennis… serving at 200km/h.
and then they decided that the referee gets a red card and should leave the court : ) and Bahrami came back with Yannick Noah. For a short while he played referee, exactly 30 years after he won the french open at Roland Garros.
