I MADE IT TO WERTHEIM ON MY FIRST MAIL TO HIM!!!

I just got the shock of my life when I read the topic about Wertheim's 50 remarks: MY NAME IS MENTIONED IN IT!!!

"7. On his 25th birthday Marat Safin beat Federer in the Australian Open semifinals. On his 19th birthday, Nadal beat Federer in the French Open semifinals. Coincidence? Hildegard Vandromme of Brussels notes that Joachim Johansson has a birthday on July 1. Hmmm."

So now you all know what my real name is.

Héhé...

Federer: Lord of the Strings (quote borrowed from another MTF-poster)
Safin: His Royal Dork-ness
Hewitt: Mowing a lawn near you
Kuerten: tennis in the shape of a heart
Ollie Rochus: the lil'man that broke Karlovic

He has never published anything I have written to him, but I won't expect anything else.

Congrats Hagar.

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".

Wait a minute. What proof have you got to support your claim to be "Hildegard Vandromme of Brussels"? For all we know, you could be my nextdoor neighbor whatever her name is...

Ah just kidding. I'm just jealous.
Must be thrilled. Congrats Hagar!

For the record, in my mail to him I also mentioned that Gustavo Kuerten has his birthday on the semi of the US Open AND that "several posters of the www.menstennisforums.com had come up with these trivia", so I did not forget you guys!

Then again you are not pulling him up on his mistakes. I know he stole an idea from when we had a discussion about the top 10 claycourt players of all time.

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".

Jon Worthless is what he should be called, he is a tennis writer for Sports Illustrated and Tennis Fool is related to him.

I don't know, I like Wertheim. Or I don't mind him, I should say.
His mailbags are better than nothing, and he tends to answer very thoroughly.

No probs, he is a fool albeit one that tries hard.

It should be somewhere there and there is a link to his mailbag.

It's still about 3 seconds of fame, if you will.
