The men started off the evening working out with the local talents, the kids. This was great to see, and the men were such great hitting partners with these kids. Some were fabulous players, little guys of 6 – 12…much fun to watch…
The gents were Ivan Ljubicic, with his lovely bald head, and fun disposition, Mario Anjcic, Jonas Bjorkman (we saw him in Davis cup years ago…awesome) and Thomas Johansen. They were great to watch play doubles…having fun with it…a few BIG serves and of course, Bjorkman and Johansen won…GREAT ENTERTAINMENT.
Then the girls took the court, Safin and Henin. They were playing singles, which of course, is much less “social”….but great fun to watch. Henin did not beat Safina easily, but of course, this WAS an EXHIBITION….
Great evening, close and personal, could hear all they were saying…and a fun night of tennis in Monte Carlo!!! NOW...we will wait for the big guns to come...at the Master's of Monte Carlo in April...can't wait for that!!!
