Stuttgart 2008
It's been something else this time! More than 6 years after my last "trip to Anna" I got the chance to see her LIVE again - now "just" playing at an exhibition, at an ATP Tournament, retired from the Pro Tour...! So much has happened since Strasbourg 2002 and I was extremely nervous and curious how I would feel when I see her again...!

And it was awesome! I saw Anna for 2 hours, bought a new HD Camcorder just for this unique and probably last chance to see Anna live and, well, what can I say: Anna still loves playing Tennis, together with Leconte she was very entertaining and I have to admit that this trip was truly unique!

When Anna left the court (3:00pm, July 8th) I realized that THIS was probably the last time that I saw her . . . hopefully Anna will come back to Germany for an exhibition/charity event in the future.

Thanx Anna for giving me the opportunity to see you in person again after such a long time! Thanx very much.

Exhibition (5b): Henri, the shoe-throwing man
Henri Leconte was the entertainer on the court - no surprise. But when he suddenly grabbed the shoe from the chair umpire and threw it into the stands, THIS was very funny. The reaction: The game for Henri/Anna was counted for Schett/Stich and then Anna encouraged Henri to do something. Henri then pulled a sock off the umpire's foot.

Exhibition (3b): serving on my side
Well, in this scene you can see Anna walking to her bag, putting her necklace (chain) away and then she went straight the more closest to me - to serve...! You can also hear Michael Stich saying "Over the net, Anna"! I have to admit that I was just sitting a few meters away from her and it was - once again - an outstanding experience. Thanx for that, Anna!

ProAm (5b): signing autographs and leaving the court
After the 2nd ProAm-matches, Anna signed autographs and - obviously also unexpected for the tournament staff - Anna left the court by climbing over the fence behind her bench, signed more autographs for fans and posed for a photo with a fan. Very nice scene.

ProAm (4b)
That was a great point with Anna serving - great shots by Anna like back at the good old Pro days. With this point Anna and Baha extended their lead (4:0) in the 1st ProAm-match. Anna was a bit tired afterwards.
