Today I am going to feature (mostly) pictures of the women players we saw in action this afternoon and evening. There is also a special ESPN behind-the-scenes pic. More pics of top men players are coming soon. I knew I would see them in the quarterfinals and semis this weekend, so I spent time earlier in the week with the other guys and girls. Enjoy the pics.
|Na Li of China. She won the French Open this year becoming the first person from an Asian country to win a Grand Slam singles title.|
|Marion Bartoli of France. She jumps around so much before a point that you feel compelled to sedate her...but it seems to keep her focused.|
|Jelena Jankovic of Serbia. Kinda whiny and bitchy and annoying.|
|Francesca Schiavone of Italy - she won the French Open Grand Slam title in 2010. She plays with so much obvious passion that she's a total fan favorite.|
|Ever wonder what those on-the-scene ESPN broadcasters are wearing under that desk? Chris Fowler (above) and Patrick McEnroe both had on shorts and sneakers tonight to complete their shirt/tie outfits.|
|Weather has been great with highs in the low-mid 80s (not too hot Greg Fugate!). This was a nice shot of the night sky at sunset taken from inside the "Grandstand" arena, the second largest court.|
