GRAYDON OLIVER...

Hey!

I'm a really big fan of Graydon Oliver. I know he's not very well-known, but he's a great doubles player, and a really great guy. Unfortunately I've heard that he has retired because of the ridiculous changes the ATP are making to doubles.

But I'm just wondering if anyone else has heard this. I really hope it's not true, it would be such a pity for him to end such a promising career. What the ATP have done to doubles is scandolous. I haven't seen his name on any entry lists this month. Is it true then???

Thanks,

A Concerned Fan

Re: GRAYDON OLIVER...

He chose not to travel to Australia this year.

That's all I'm saying.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Re: GRAYDON OLIVER...



i could lend him some money . We could negotiate some alternate "payment terms" I'm not interested in cash

Fee, Alan said himself that Graydon hasn't entered any tourneys in Oz so obviously we know that he has chosen not to travel to Australia this season. That's basically all you are saying because it's all you know! As a good friend of Graydon's, I know he will let his fans know if he plans to retire when he feels it's time. The guy respects his fans and I know he will continue to respect them by sharing the truth with them. So Fee, please don't act like you are trying to hide something, this is Graydon's business, not yours!

PS: Fee, I am not trying to start another argument with you, I am just telling the truth. So, please do not feel the need to bad rep me again, it's like SO childish and SO 2005!

Vamos RAFA, FELI y NANDO!!!!!!!

Re: GRAYDON OLIVER...

Thanks for that Saz, wow I can't believe you know Gray, is he a really nice guy? Bet he is! I knew he wasn't traveling to Oz, that's what I said. But I hope he isn't retiring!!! He's way to talented.

Re: GRAYDON OLIVER...

I do know what's going on, but as you said, it's his news not mine so I chose not to say anything. I was intentionally trying to be vague.

Yes Als, he is a really good guy and he is a very talented doubles player. Check his website every once in a while.

Re: GRAYDON OLIVER...

Hey Fee, thanks for that, thanks for taking the time to post. My head is just so wrecked though waiting to see if he's retired or not. Can you please be a little less vague, please. I'm just such a big fan of his, and hope he hasn't packed it in.

How do you know Graydon? Do you know any other players???

Re: GRAYDON OLIVER...

i know the feeling, when you're the only one who knows and likes and wants to support an idol of yours.

Marat: Last question: what do you think of me? Dinara: You are my god! When you play, I love
to see you. When you lose, I am even sadder than when it is me. When you are wounded, I suffer.
When you speak to me, I drink your words. When you come to see me playing, I am with the angels.
