Whats the craziest thing youve ever done for tennis??

Having my brother in Argentina mail me tapes of tennis matches I can't see in the US.

I know its not a crazy thing to do per se but trust me, it certainly drives him crazy. Ive known to call him at 5 in the morning or so to remind him to tape the match!

Im so loca.

MY FAVES: Coria, Nalbandian, Canas, FOXY Ferrero, Guga, Grosjean, Costa, Juan Monaco.

Registered at MTF.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Whats the craziest thing youve ever done for tennis??

I had an exam for a computing subject at uni... I told the lecturer I had tickets to the Davis Cup, and I had them for aaages before hand... she let me do the exam a month later Funny thing is, I did the exam when the Sydney / Adidas International was on! Nearly missed half of Thomas Johansson's match vs Boutter! It's not crazy I guess... it's just dedication...like cancelling flights so I can have 2 more days in melbourne.
