Hey there,

Well, it’s 6:30am on a Saturday and yes, I am awake!!! Now I know I mentioned that I am not going to London for Wimby, but heeellllooo it doesn’t mean I am not working!! 🙂

So today, I was up early AM to prepare some questions/items and went over a few things with Robin, who is in London. We will have Paul Henri Mathieu do some video at his hotel on the new 2013 tennis shoe. Now I can’t tell you much about the shoe, but Paul Henri has been part of the development process the past 1-1 1/2 years and we are really excited about this shoe. The footwear team is killer and has created something that will make you super fast! 😉

Besides that, after an awesome Friday night dinner at my favorite Italian restaurant in the Chicago, Piccolo Sogno (spaghetti neri fruitti de mare!),  I had a phone call at midnight with the westcoast crew who shot the video in Rome. Steve B is the lead on the project and he is definitely a character…he was making fun of me for taking a work call at midnight on a Friday, but last time I checked he was on the phone late night too!! haha We’re in the process of putting together footage of Roger, Vika, Serena, Milos, Mardy and more…. I’m definitely psyched to see what he brings to life!! 🙂

And so it seems like I am coming down with a heavy cold, which is weird since the weather is so good… maybe it’s cause I’ve had about 3 1/2 hrs of sleep?! Who knows?! 😉 lol So I am going back to bed for a couple of hours and then will try to enjoy the day BEFORE the insanity of the tournament REALLY begins…..

Happy Saturday!

Until later,

Tracy

Stayin Alive

Is it a photoshoot?! No it's the French Open!

Is it a photoshoot?! No it’s the French Open!

It’s Wednesday, officially the 4th day of the tournament, but the Wilson team is on day 10…. not that we are keeping track or anything! And in the word of the Bee Gee’s we are Stayin Alive! 🙂
It’s been an extremely productive past few days for me and the Digital Marketing team (Robin and I)..We have been able to get some great footage of our Wilson Exclusive athletes Philipp Kohlschreiber, Feliciano Lopez, Paul Henri Mathieu, Anne Keothavong and Mandy Minella…. it’s great to have athletes that are kick a** tennis players and are also very ‘marketable’….. Robin took some amazing photos that looked like they were out of a photoshoot, not intense play at a Grand Slam… hats off to RF, he is elevating our level… his stuff is a bit better than what I was capturing on my blackberry… haha…. In addition, it’s also an extreme positive for me that I get to speak to someone through the day instead of running from court to court by myself, I have officially stopped talking to myself through the day! 😉
So we were able to get an Inside the Life with Next Gen’r Vasel Pospisil… he’s a very charming kid with a big serve and big game… watch out for him on the grass and hard, he will definitely be a player to make waves this year…. the video will come out later this week…. that is, if we stop shooting and actually have time to edit!!! It’s a running joke between Robin and I that we will have an edit day so we can get the stuff out… but so far there has been none. There is just too many awesome things happening and in video ‘they say you can never have enough’…. so today we will have 10 players to shoot! lol
Today we meet up with Wilson team France to do the protest to keep the Juice and Steam legal! Should be interesting…. I have no idea what to expect and how many people will show up… all I know is that Robin and I have to walk a bloody mile with camera gear and computers. NOT SO GLAM! 😛
So just a couple more days of Paris for me and I can’t wait to come home and see the Chicago team, sit in my cubicle, eat by the windows and carry on with my friends during the Chicago summer.

Until later,

Tracy
