BMWMO 2014 (Part 1)

In the name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful.

Assalamu'alaikum, y'all!

About 2 weeks ago, me and 6 friends of mine volunteered to become part of the court services crew for the 2014 WTA BMW Malaysia Open (BMWMO).  I'm telling you.  It was hard work. Carrying boxes and bags of ice and tennis balls and drinks.  But it was worth every damn second.  For the first few days we got out of work early cos there weren't much to do anyway...........

Mind you, there weren't any hard court surfaces in the Royal Selangor Golf Club (RSGC) grounds.  Just grass courts.  That's the center court right there where all the main matches were played and the court that was televised on Astro.  The prize was of course that new BMW X5 up there.  How did they get it there? No clue.


Here's where the players did most of their practice sessions.  MiCasa hotel suites.  There's Miss Rika Fujiwara practising her serve.

No idea what possessed Aji over there in the 2nd picture.  Haha!

Ok.  So basically the next pictures are what we see almost everyday in the BMWMO.............

Don't ask me about that last picture.  That's just the 2 Ali's (Ali and Wan Ali).  They've got a screw loose.  Well...They've got all of they're screws loose.  Haha!

I've been playing tennis for 16 years now.  And seeing these ladies play how they did was just...Humbling.  I mean I know they're pros but c'mon, right?

Well, I think I'll finish part 2 of this tomorrow.

See you guys on the flip side!!

P.S: Thinking of training those guys.  Those who can't do, teach.  Right? >____<"
