What’s up Wilson followers?!
Well, it’s been a while since we wrote a Tour blog, so here we go!
Let me start off by saying, we are lucky to have some of the nicest players on tour and it is always fun to see players enjoy what they do!
I was in Indian Wells last week and caught up with a lot of our players. We had some great autograph sessions with Alona Bondarenko, Mardy Fish, and Melanie Oudin. Melanie is a great girl and her success has not changed her a bit. She continues to be a super nice to everyone and she deserves the success she’s had and we hope it continues!! We also did a very cool doubles clinic with Rajeev Ram and Eric Butorac as fans got the chance to hit with them on site in Indian Wells. It was funny to see people try to knock Rajeev and Eric off the court…..one guy got extremely excited to try and hit a winnner that he hit the ball over the fence…..yes, over the fence!!! haha
This past week we also launched our new UStream channel where we had a Bethanie Mattek-Sands, Anne Keothavong and Polona Hercog stop by to give us some insight to the tour, talk tennis, random stuff and have some fun answering your questions. Hopefully everyone really enjoyed the interviews and we will have a few more from Miami…..Check out some of the hightlights from IW with the links below. All three girls were awesome and I had a blast interviewing them. Make sure you check out the last minute or so of Polona and I going head to head in a bread eating contest!!! haha Don’t ask! 😛
So Indian Wells is always a popular time for the Tennis Channel to do some bag checks so we had Feliciano Lopez, Petra Martic and a few other players get into the bag check action! You should see them on tv shortly, so stay tuned.
All in all, it was a good trip to IW and now I head back to Chicago before I meet up with the rest of the tour team in Miami!
IW is still rolloing but onto the next project for me…..
We will keep you updated from Miami!!
