Feel sorry for Annie though. It is today she's gone isn't it?
Yup - i was soooo dissapointed when i got to the venue and the board thing said Jamie Delgado was playing, instead of Andy!
But anyway, i still had a wicked time!! Watching tennis live is soooo much better than on TV....
We were planning on going at about 6am..... to drive to Brighton for the morning, and spend a few hours there ('cause it's like my favourite place in the world!) but my friend was being lazy and couldn't be bothered to wake up... so eventually we left at 8-ish, and decided not to go to Brighton. But, a journey that should have taken us 2 hours.... managed to take us about 4..... thanks to my *fantastic* navigating.
Anyways, we got there.... and hung around a bit. Then we went to the stadium, just before 1. And then we saw that Andy wasn't playing..... i was quite upset.
So then we sat down..... and the first person i saw was Judy - and i was like 'WOW there's Judy!!!!' really loud... slightly embarrasing.....
And we tried to take loads of pictures.... but it was hard 'cause we were in the East stand - the stand opposite to where the players and people were.
Just as the players started the warm up - i spotted Andy!!!! At this point he was wearing a dark cap, and a neck brace sadly
So yeh, the match started.... it was sooo cool!! Even though Jamie didn't start to well
After about 10 mins andy took the neck brace off....
It was quite funny.... early on in the second set, it was a big point or something, i think.... and Andy started like signalling to the photographers. I was trying to work out what he was saying.... but i think it was something like 'take a picture of Okun, to distract him!' or something of the sort...
Hehe... and Jamie won the next point lol! Anyway the third and fourth sets were much better from Jamie.... the atmosphere was amazing when he won the fourth!!! It was dissapointing when he didn't win.... but i was generally impressed with him - he played well, a lot better than i had thought he would!!
Then, quite a few people went home after the match..... so the stadium was a bit emptier, and obviously a lot quiter!
Alan's match was.... quick!!! And i was really impressed with his play!! He did really well! Although.... i was a bit confused when Andy walked out with him, and sat with him at the beginning of the match instead of Bates.... i didn't know they could do that!
So, all in all.... it was amazing!! Dissapointing that i didn't get to see Andy play.... or GB win!
But it was great....! The weather was sooo hot though!
But it was definitely all worth a long drive!
We had a few pictures.... but we weren't very good at the whole taking pictures thing....
I just need to work out how to upload them and stuff... then i'll post them!!
Btw, sorry if this doesn't make sense.... kinda rambling slightly
