a few things didn't go as planned at our arrival - but then
again, it very rarely does at the start of a tournament - at
least, there are things that do work, and that make us officials,
media, players, feel AWFULLY GOOD.
Moods is a splendid place, at the far end of the Marina, seconds
from the glass court. It's not only a bar, a restaurant opened
all day/all night, but also a superb beach, lovely view upon the
sea on one side, and the marina on the other.
Every year, Moods is El Gouna International Sponsor. It means
that we can come here, and eat delicious food, twice a day, with
the breakfast at the hotel.
One thing that needs to be stressed, I used to lose about 2, 3kg
every time I could come to Egypt, but now I eat at Moods, I
don't... The food is far too good, and far too safe!!!!
makes the place, is not only the situation of the restaurant,
perfect as I mentionned, but the people that work there. Ziad,
head waiter, his boss and their team, are just so nice, so efficient, so
professional. They even remembered what I take for lunch. A year
That's service for you. And that makes our life so easy, so
simple. And when you work as we do, for hours on end, day after
day after day - as we have only 1 court to work on - it makes
all the difference.
So, Steve and myself, speaking in the name of us all in the El
Gouna Tournament, we truly and utterly thank you.
