So I think it’s going to get easier from here, hopefully!!!
We were able to get through Roger Federer autograph session with no issues and the fans were super happy. Honestly there were about 1000+ people out there just trying to catch a glimpse of Roger, but no one got rowdy, the girls just squeeled like pigs… lol… the best part of it was seeing some of the items that people bring in for Roger to sign…. the best were an American Girl doll, a $20 bill and a dude asked him to sign his jorts (jean shorts)….. that part always makes me laugh….
Yesterday we also shot a video with Victoria Azarenka and Petra Kvitova for our partnership with the WTA and it went well. They are playing doubles together here for the 1st time and it’s kinda amazing having world #1 & 3 playing together…. it’s great for the game and for us at Wilson to have to of the most dynamic personalities on tour. They did a fun video for Juice and Steam that will be on later today…. I have to say their acting skills are pretty good and we only had 5 minutes to shoot it!!
We managed to also get some Tennis Channel bag checks done with Simona Halep and Robert Lindstedt.
Robert and Horia Tecau will be doing a doubles clinic for fans today at 2pm at Tennis Warehouse tent…. hope you can come by and check it out….
Other than that, tonight I will lock myself in the hotel to complete editing the video we shot in Newport Beach to get at least one video out shortly…
Off to breakfast to review the Vika/Petra video we shot yesterday for WTA….
