Desert Dreamin’

By Maria Noble In Archive

In my first 3 nights at home after I left Indian Wells, I kept having dreams that I was back there. As Rafa would say, “Very, very bad.”

My favorite time of the year has come and gone. It’s always bittersweet when I do these wrap / look back posts. To avoid sounding like a broken record, I’m not going to say that this was the best year yet even though it was. Wait. Damnit. I’ve been going to the event since 2008 and, so far, every year really has been “the best” for different reasons. What can I say? It keeps gettin’ better.

On to the photos! I’ll start with some normal tennis.

This is sports, not everything is going to go well. Here’s some disappointment tennis.

I think Vika was just as confused as everyone as to why she even took the court.

I mean, Feli missed the shot and made this face so this must be his disappointment face.

I considered doing hand signals to let Ryan know I can’t actually help him play better.
