Happy birthday Sjeng Schalken!

Sjeng Schaken turns 26 today. I guess you noticed I just love birthday threads. I suppose I never pass up an opportunity to celebrate my faves.

Happy birthday Sjeng!!!



May all your wishes come true. Lord knows you've been through enough in your life. It's time to reap some rewards for your hard work. Here's to a very successful year. Cheers!

It would be great if he could play in today's final on his birthday but it wasn't ment to be. Reaching his first GS semi-final should be a good enough birthday present though. I'm sure he's more than happy about it. And at least he didn't tank yesterday and made Sampras play tie-breaks.

HAPPY B-DAY!

Congrats on a great US Open and good luck in your tennis future!

Sorry. Couldn't find a more fitting picture for his birthday if I searched for a millenium.

What's so funny 'bout peace, love and understanding?

Guga doesn't hold a grudge, neither should you

yeah, Sjeng beat Guga, so that means they should be playing doubles somewhere in the near future??

And during the Sjeng/Fernando match, I remember them quickly saying how one of Sjeng's brothers died of leukemia (sp?) and another brother has down syndrome? I may be wrong. If someone knows....
