Oh my Sunburn!
My dad, Kat and I went to two days of the Western and Southern Financial Group Masters in Cincinnati. I love this tournament. Maybe it's because I have a soft spot for it because it was the first tennis tournament I ever went to but I like the atmosphere of it. The people are friendly, the site is easy to get around and the draw is always good. There were so many great match ups, I was in heaven. Not to mention one of the first players I saw when I arrived on Monday was Juan Carlos Ferrero. *hearts* He's so dreamy. I don't care if he is absolutely in love with his gorgeous girlfriend, he is a beautiful beautiful man and I will continue to gawk at him. And not to make myself seem shallow. I do love to watch him play. He has a great ground game and covers the court like few others. Check him out if you get a chance.
unfortunately my brilliant plan to even out my farmer's tan kind of back fired on me. It worked to a certain extent because I'm no longer pale on my arms but not my shoulders are burnt and it's so painful. I did wear sunscreen but the usual layers I wear. Getting sunburns in the shoulders is just a bad place to get sunburns because you use your shoulders so often. Anyway, I am in pain but with all the great tennis I saw this week it was worth it.
My dad and I co-authored a book. Coming of Age: Andy Roddick's Breakthrough Year, so we were there to promote it a bit. It was also a chance to see real sports journalists in action. I want that job some day! Kat was dad's photographer, so she was one happy bunny. She was all over the place taking photos and even started to bond with the other photographers. We also met up with our friends Mel and Christine. It's great to meet up with friends and watch some incredibly attractive young men perform in front of you. God Bless Tennis.
