Sony Ericsson Open: John Isner Press Conference

Ok, let me first just say, this boy is TALL.  I mean, I knew that, but when he walked by me headed to his post-match press conference, I really had no idea how that would measure against my 5'6" height.  He is in a whole nother atmosphere.  Anyway here are some of the better Q & A from his press conference:

Rafa = Danger

I witnessed my first mid-day Rafa practice today and it was......an experience.

I was walking on my way to the Devvarman/Ferrer match when I saw a HUGE group of people watching a practice court and, of course, the player on it was none other than Rafael Nadal.  I calmly approached the fence about 3 rows back and then madness ensued. 

I started getting shoved and pushed from behind by sweaty bodies, all to the soundtrack of screaming, crying, and Rafa grunting.  It was DANGEROUS people.  I went around to the other side to get away from the horde and got some better shots.

You knew when Rafa was leaving, because the screaming came to a cresendo.   I get it, Rafa is a rock star, but the craziness was otherworldly.  Kudos to the Sony Ericsson Open to giving fans such great access to players, but double the kudos to the security guards who have to deal with this on a daily basis.  They literally risk life and limb protecting Rafa.

Video: NovAndy and the Best Doubles Point Ever

I'm really sad that I missed the Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic doubles match yesterday, but it conflicted with the Feliciano Lopez and Fernando Verdasco match that I was also interested in.  I could hear all the cheers from their court while watching Team Pretty, and this is what the crowd was apparently cheering for.  This point is incredible. Enjoy!

Defending champion Andy Roddick was defeated yesterday by Pablo Cuevas 6-4, 7-6.  Roddick, who looked like he was struggling physically, needed medical treatment during the second set.  Below is his post-match press conference where he addressed the issue:

Random Run-Ins With Juan Monaco and Feliciano Lopez

Today was a much more comfortable day at the Sony Ericsson Open.  It's nice when people start to recognize you, and you understand how everything works, and where everything is in the media center.  However, the one thing that I did not understand, until today, is how interviews work in the small interview room.
