Malaysian Open Tennis, Kuala Lumpur 2010

Woohoo!! I am here!!

This is one of my favourite player, Nikolay Davydenko, but unfortunately he crashed out early

It was really interesting to travel back and forth from the place that I stayed to the stadium

Scenes from the quarterfinals 
There was a line for an autograph session.
It was a long wait, as 
It was Marcos Baghdatis of Cyprus 

Outside of the stadium

The match between Igor Andreev vs Milos Raonic.
Q] I Andreev (RUS) d [Q] M Raonic (CAN) 6-1 3-6 6-3

Roanic in action

Marcos Baghdatis vs  Mikhail Youzhny. This was a thrilling match. 
[4] M Youzhny (RUS) d [6] M Baghdatis (CYP) 6-7(5) 7-5 6-1

The finals
The finals line-up

 My tennis kaki Alvin Arul. Thanks for the company and the discussions about everything tennis

If you look closely that is Denis Istomin practicing with Andrey Golubev before the Double's final starts

So sorry for the lack of photos. I was busily taking videos instead. So just wait for that peeps.
In conclusion ,it was seriously one of the best highlights of the year, and this was the bomb, comparable to the Jason Mraz concert I went last year. The quality of play was really good and there were some really jaw dropping moments in some of the matches.  Andrey Golubev upstaged Soderling in the quarterfinals and beat David Ferrer in the semifinal. Phew!that was really something.  Eventhough the stadium was not filled to brim, but the respond to the players were really good.

Definitely coming back next year.

P.S. anyways special shoutout to the Ong family for letting me bunk at their home. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
