2008 Pacific Life Open IX

Hey Tennis Friends!

Here’s a picture of me with the real heroes of the tournament, the ball kids.

Most of you know, that is what I really want to be when I grow up! This photo was taken just before, what appears to be, my final match announcing on Stadium 2.

Today’s match just started and is a men’s doubles match: Richard Gasquet (No.8 singles player in the word) and Robert Lindstedt vs. number three seeds Daniel Nestor (No.4 doubles player) and Nenad Zimonic (No.10 doubles player) .

I was the chair umpire last week for a match with Gasquet/Lindstedt with the Fila/Tennis Warehouse Doubles Challenge winners.

After the match, when the players came up to the chair to shake my hand, Robert Lindstedt said to me, “You suck!” It was very refreshingly funny and good natured.

Nestor/Zimonic won today’s doubles match 7-5, 6-2.

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