I hate being one of those people who acts like they are connected to famous people because of things like this, but I have to say that this was one of those times I basked in the glory of social networking.
One of my favorite tennis players, Anna-Lena Groenefeld, was on Facebook earlier and I sent her a little good luck boost! I had to! The convo went a little longer than that, but it wasn’t anything particularly exciting, so I didn’t screen capture.
Anna-Lena is currently ranked No. 51, and has made it to the quarterfinals at the French Open in 2006 where she lost to Justine Henin 7-5, 6-2.
Her next foe is Gisela Dulko, who Anna-Lena beat to make it to the quarterfinals in 2006.
She is in the same quarter of the draw as Venus Williams. That would be a hard match for me to watch since I love both players equally.
Are you watching the French Open this year?
