Reached Hyderabad by Spice in the morning and went straight to the event organizers (Catpro) office for collecting my running number. Met Vivek from Pune there, who told me about an interesting theory on running long distance with the front of your foot landing before the rest. Went to Hotel Raj Classic Inn, located on MG road from there.
In the afternoon, went out to catch some Hopman cup tennis action at the LB Stadium. It was crazy out there with all the Sania-Mania, entry being strictly on passes which were hard to come by, and with droves of youngsters creating a ruckus at the entrance gates. I had to finally shell out a 100 bucks to get hold of the pass, just as I was going to leave. Inside, India trounced Japan comfortably, with Sania and Rohan winning their respective matches.
Went to sleep early by 10:00 pm as the race was to start early at 6:00 am.
