Thread: Autograph Hunting
06-13-2006, 01:27 PM #1
Well, this trip, I tried to hunt for autographs whenever I can (while concentrating on the matches). Here are the ones I manage to get:
Chan Choong Ming
Koo Kian Keat
Lee Wan Wah
Zhang Jie Wen
Pi Hong Yan
Overall, the japanese autographs looks the best. Of the chinese players, Lu Lan's looks the most cool. Chen Hong's can't even make out what he wrote.
Getting the japanese players' autograph is the most hilarious as they have no idea what I am saying and when I approached them, they seem shocked and blur. Luckily, Kanako seems to know some english as she pointed to the particular page I wanted and said "here?". Of course, my favourite is Kanako. But Shoji's autograph is the best looking.
Bao Chun Lai (not my priority anyway)

Hello, just curious, when you let them sign for autograph, you just use paper/notebook? Or must have a poster with their face? or you let them sign on your shirt?

Need some advice, it might sounds senseless but this is my first time going to tournament like this. Can I ask the players to sign their autograph on my notebook? Anyone who has experience with autograph hunting, please kindly let me know. Thanks.

1) Try not to do it when they are in a bad mood like right after losing a tough thriller or something.
2) Make it simple. Give them the book and pen in ready condition. Cause right after a match when they were walking past the front row, they can get a little disoriented (Pi Hong Yan had a hard time unscrewing my pen as she was panting and stuff... Wait, I know it doesn't sound right...).
3) Best is approach them when they are in the stands relaxed.
One of my purpose in autographs is a form of encouragement to the players. Apart from some weirdo player that do not like to give autographs, I believe most players feel appreciated and encouraged if fans bother to approach them for autographs/pictures. Its some form of verification of their hardwork and achievement.

He's a joker n simply amusing when he's in mood
But he becomes cloudy n emotionless after losing a match... He simply needed at least a week to regain his usual self when Malaysia failed to reclaim Thomas Cup...
