Our five year adventure in Doha, Qatar ended June 1, 2012, but the memories will always remain. It's back to Texas where I have decided...Qatar isn't cornering the market on "quirky", as I once believed. Thanks for opening my eyes to the world, Doha!

Tennis Finale

My last report on tennis...Serena beat Venus. Now that we got that out of the way, I'd rather talk about the trophy presentation and 25th anniversary celebration. I do have to hand it to this country when it comes to putting on an extravaganza. The Sony Ericsson Championship trophy was lowered into the stadium via crane and tennis playing acrobats. It was a site to behold. I was trying to get still pics and video out of one machine and that can get a bit tricky. After the trophy was put on its pedestal and then presented to Serena, the Qatar Tennis Federation put on a show to celebrate their 25 year presence in Doha. It was a befitting end to a great tournament. I'm already looking forward to the men's tournament headed this way in January.

  1. Wow, that's impressive. Looks like you were at the Olympics!

  2. I might have to make it to one of those tournaments one year. You would think that Serena would have let her sister have this one since she has already one! I guess she didn't want to let go of her number one spot.

  3. You got great pictures! Wow they spare no money when they want too...now to finish D ring forget it!


I always love hearing your comments. Go ahead make my day, be it the good, the bad, or the ugly...
