2008 Pacific Life Open VIII

Hey Tennis Friends!

It’s “experimental day” here at GroundsPass.net. Since I have to keep my laptop silent (along with cel phones and other electronic devices), I don’t know how this will turn out. I guess that instead of blindly trying this, it’s more like “deafly” trying this.

I am using the built-in camera on my MacBook along with iMovie to capture and send my intro that I just did for Tommy Haas. It is in the QuickTime format, so I hope that you can all open it.

I captured it, then edited it based on when the audio meters started and stopped fluctuating, so, my apologies if something gets cut off. I won’t be able to listen to this until late tonight, after my work is completed.

Hopefully it’s not too embarrassing. It’s ironic (being that I sometimes work as a cameraman) that another cameraman stepped in front of my shot at the end, . . . his name is Skippy, by the way . . .

Tommy defeated Andy Murray in three exciting sets 2-6, 7-5, 6-3.

Posing with Lars Graff

During the night tennis, I was showing chair umpire Lars Graff the capabilities of my MacBook between matches. Friendly as he is, he agreed to pose for a picture with me.

Lars Graff and Marcus Tennis

Lars was very professional, and helpful. He had assisted me with my pronunciation of some of the international cities in the bios that I had to read. Thanks Lars!

I’ll see you next time, with more tennis, . . . outside the lines!
