Last night Juan Martin del Potro and Agnieszka Radwanska went to Coconut Grove in Miami to sign autographs and take pictures with fans. The atmosphere was amazing with a large screen showing promo shots of all the players and a DJ blasting electro-pop to get everyone pumped up. Juan Martin was really sweet with his fans, especially the little ones as you can see in the photos below.
Aga also looked like she had a great time.
She also had a major fan in this little guy posing with her in the video below. Too cute!!
I asked both of them how important it was to them to take this time with their fans, and also what they like to do while in Miami:
On the fans:
JMDP: Well I mean it's something different and it's very special for me, for the kids, it's amazing to be here with all of them, sharing moments. I think it is good for us and for them too.
Aga: I think it's always fun, in this nice square. Every year I am doing this so it's always fun.
JMDP: Well I'm not going out at this moment, but when I finish the tournament maybe? I know you have a good parties here, but I'm focused on playing tennis and that's it.
Aga: I think there is always a good night life so wherever you go it's always nice, crowded, very good restaurants. So it's always nice.
Have you gone dancing (to Aga)?
Not yet, but for sure after my last match I will go definitely!
My personal favorite part of the night was the "bird man" who has been doing his show in the area for years.
