I managed to get to the courts and play for two hours. (Feeling good about it.) This is the first time I've actually consistently played while attending anything indoor... so, I'm getting a real feel of what it's like for this group, because everyone plays. And that's fundamentally what this is all about.
I had figured the press conference stuff was over with, but I was wrong. Paola Longoria showed up to practice on the courts. She arrived as most of the other top Mexican players were practice playing. She didn't hit the courts until after they left. She was waiting for her press to arrive. She brought her own. Then she practiced.
Tonight, match play starts. They won't be broadcasting until tomorrow.
