Roland Garros - II
This is the post from Paris two weeks ago I didn't have time to post it cause of the contest but now i do... It was a really fun trip with Sally, her Mom Mary, Kamila and Marie-O... I can't believe we only spent 3 days there we did so many things it seemed to be 2 weeks!
So first I am going to talk about the little tennis lesson we got with Bethanie Mattek-Sands.
The Hotshot team had mad the reservation of the court on top of the "Galleries Lafayette". We arrived earlier than Bethanie and they started filming us so everybody thought me and Sally were professional tennis players, they were taking photos of us and stuff so it was kinda funny when we started playing they all laughed and left.. haha
Bethanie arrived and showed us a few moves that really helped, and we played a double against her and for some reason we won, I mean she let us win haha. But definitely it gave us a little tennis fever and I want to play more now.
The next day we went to watch our new friend playing in one of the most prestigious tennis tournaments in the world, Roland Garros... We took banners and all and cheered on her and after some nerve-racking moments she ended up winning. We were really stoked for her and it's an inspiration to watch such great athletes from that close, before the Swatch Girls pro next week it was cool to get motivated with all that good energy.
For the rest, we did some touristy things, visited Paris and ate great food.
Check out the photos!
Voila le petit sejour a Paris de la semaine derniere avec Sally et sa maman, Marie-O, Kamila. On a eu la chance de pouvoir jouer au tennis avec une des meilleures tennis women du monde Bethanie Mattek-Sands, puis on est allees voir son match le lendemain (qu'elle a gagne apres quelques moments un peu stressants!)
On a joue sur les toits des galleries Lafayette et tous les gens croyaient que Sally et moi etions des pros, et nous prenaient en photo.. mais quand on a commence a jouer bizarrement tout le monde est parti!
J'ai aussi eu la chance de rencontrer Martina Navratilova une des meilleures joueuses de tous les temps...
