Halle/Westfalen 2010
Anna once again in Halle/Westfalen - who would have thought this could happen?
On Saturday, June 5th, I took the train and unfortunately it was delayed for one hour. I arrived at Halle/W. at 3:30pm so I was much later this year.

"wirbel2" picked me up at the train station which was really nice and together we walked around the courts, just to search for Anna. Unfortunately, we didn't see her prior to the Exhibition match.

At 5:00pm - just like last year - the WARSTEINER CHAMPIONS TROPHY began: Anna teamed up again with Nicolas Kiefer and both faced Scarlet Werner/Thomas Muster. Thomas seemed to have a little "battle" going on with Anna, but it was just entertaining and great fun. The time went by so quickly, Anna looked so pretty in her new blue outfit and at 6:40pm Anna/Nicolas really won the match 6:4,5:7,10:8 with the 3rd set played as Champions Tiebreak.

After the match (I recorded the complete match with my FullHD-camcorder) I left Center Court and went straight to the Management exit. Last year, Anna left the Center Court there, signed autographs and "wirbel2" was so incredibly lucky to get his picture taken with Anna. We waited for quite some time and "wirbel2" and I were standing in the first row this time. Nicolas Kiefer and Thomas Muster came out and signed autographs - but Anna didn't! It was hard to realize that my big dream of getting a picture with Anna and maybe talk to her for 1,2 sentences didn't fulfill :-(

Well, this year the expectations had been different because I was soooo convinced that Anna would take the same exit as she did last year. But she didn't...! Hopefully I will get one more chance to see her live and finally get my picture taken with her.

Wheelchair and "Let's play Tennis"
funny scene: Anna doesn't reach a ball, then Anna says "I'm old...I need a wheelchair". Then Thomas Muster bleats like a goat so that Anna can't serve, a hard return from Anna and in the end, Anna demands in a funny way "let's play Tennis". It shows how much entertaining and funny this exhibition was.
