Davis Cup Monte Carlo - Allez les Bleus! Go USA!

Yesterday I went to the Grimaldi Forum to photograph ArtMonaco - the series was due to begin here today. However, I'd forgotten that the Davis Cup tennis was on. Finding a parking place was next to impossible although in the end got a place down by the port.

Much much later it was almost impossible to get past the Monte Carlo Tennis and out of Monaco. The cars crawled along and so I snapped these American ladies through the glass (then wished I'd remembered to roll it down). And later at Saint Roman, snapped the French - against the early evening light.

I couldn't tell who won yesterday as both the Americans and the French seemed to be having a ball.

Allez les Bleus! Go USA!

Seeing all these people wearing their colors reminds me that I have a red and white Allez Monaco soccer scarf hanging on the wall of my garage in Scottsdale, next to the posters from the 2002 Monaco Grand Prix Historique.

Dear Jilly, is the Monte Carlo tennis club in Monaco or in France? I'm watching the matches on TV and they identify the actual venue as in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, France. Apparently they named the country club as Monte Carlo ... but the actual location is outside the principality. If true, the Monaco in my head, tiny as it is, got even smaller. Thanks.

R, yes it's on land leased from France - so is the Monte Carlo Beach Hotel. You'd not know tho!
