How cool living next door to a tournament!! Sounds good to me!! If you're ever over here for the Sydney tournament let me know!!

Lucky you're into tennis and there watching it as I'm sure the sound of all that ball hitting would drive you nuts!!

Must be crowded for parking in your street!! laugh.gif

Is our darling Lleyton there by any chance?

Understand the sentiments Lisa and Sandra.

Once Wimbledon begins, you won't see me for dust!

Hi Lisa,
My husband is in TENNIS heaven around here. He's watching Indian Wells and last week the Scottsdale tennis. I'm happy it's in our time zone so he's not up all night.
I won't tell him about Florida or he my move in with you. LOL!
Sounds like great fun for you. Have fun in Miami.

Well, it was a great week of tennis- in singles Jurgen Melzer (AUT) defeated Thomas Enqvist (SWE) and in doubles Igor Andreev (RUS) & Dmitry Tursunov (RUS) defeated Thomas Enqvist & Kenneth Carlsen (DEN)

Here are some photos with my friend, image #1- Joachim Johansson (SWE), image #2- Guillermo Canas (ARG) and last Todd Martin (USA)

You're KIDDING!!! laugh.gif

How did you manage that?? rolleyes.gif You seem to be part of the 'in' gang.

You ARE a tennis head . . . . I'll have to get my pics of me and Pat (Rafter) out to rival yours!! haha!!

Then again, I could just tell you my brother worked at Wimbledon and had all these free tickets to centre court . . . . laugh.gif laugh.gif

Wow, Sandra, free tickets- center court, that must have been fantastic! Jack actually wanted to take me to Wimbledon this year but it didn't work out, next year for sure.

I didn't mention that I also picked up Felix Mantilla (ESP) from the hotel and brought him to the event!! wink.gif

So . . . . maybe I'll see you around at a Tennis event one day, Lisa!!

OK, OK, I am back again after 2 whole days at Nasdaq.

It was so fantastic, I saw Serena, Aggasi, Coria, Roddick, Martin, the Bryans, Navratilova and so many other great players!

Next week I have the Davis cup, so much tennis, so little time. wink.gif

laugh.gif I can see you're having a great time, Lisa!! I hope EL make a little fuzzy tennis ball solid one day just for you!

Who's playing for you guys in the Davis Cup?? I'm upset that we (aussie team) got knocked out soon early this year - what a poor performance we put up!! So I guess I'll cheer on the US for you later on!

AND - CAN'T WAIT FOR THE OLYMPICS!!

Ooh - that's next week, isn't it!!

It'll be a good match up. I have a soft spot for Bjorkman and Sweden (since he plays with our Todd Woodbridge), so my heart will be divided . . . .

Both sides have some excellent players!! May the best team win!! biggrin.gif
