Lightbulb One last Pimpim project, for old times sake?

I was thinking about this after reading something in the JCF forum. We all want to get in contact with Joachim, so he knows he has a lot of fans / Pimsters right?

Well, I'm going to post a message on the Yahoo group in a couple of weeks, to ask if anyone wants me to pass on messages of support to the Swedes at the beginning of the year.

But for the moment I'll start a thread in here. I'll add more details in a week or two, do you think we should do this sort of thing throughout the year (e.g. Grand Slams, or at regular intervals?)? At least until he has something official (website) where people can show their support. What do you guys think?

Sorry.... I know I'm very vague right now! I'm just imagining it to be some sort of folder/document, which I will bind for safekeeping, etc. Here's the JCF post, by Roisin.

Re: Contact with Joachim

thats a bloody fab idea...you could do give him stuff from us in the Aus tournies (obv), Me the English tournies and others other tournies... its a really good idea!!

That way he'll know about us and maybe reply to us and we can have our communications with him

What a good idea (i'm a lil excited you see )

Re: Contact with Joachim

thats a GREAT idea

also, seeing as there are so many of us in different places who go to different tourneys he plays in, we could do this quite successfully

I don't know yet. I haven't gone before, but I'm gonna try and save some money and try to convince my parents to let me go (I'm gonna be 17 at that time). If I stay away from trouble, maybe they'll let me go

Are you going Jexy???

Oh man, I'd love to, but money is of an issue as well. It's in a year, so I'll try to save up!... I really want to go, somewhere at the beginning of the tournament tho... way less people and way more players walking around. With my luck something stupid is gonna happen...... again.

A PASH 'N' DASH!! lol j/k My favourite guys are too tall to even give them a kiss on the cheek if I felt the need to. Don't Hershey's make a candy called Kisses? I can give him one of those and say "Hey Joachim...this is from Pina, and make sure you get your ass to the China Open, mmmkay?"

Remind me to keep looking over my shoulder to make sure Jaslyn isn't around!

Post Re: Contact with Joachim

Well, we're two months away from the first tournaments of 2005, so I figured we should start "brainstorming" ideas for our messages of support.
Such as:
  • letters
  • personal match reports (critique of his fashion!?)
  • stories
  • websites
  • photos / drawings
  • quotes
  • magazine articles
  • stuff you've written.

I'm thinking it would be a good idea to include a lit of websites related/dedicated to him. So, if you want to submit one, please also include a short description.

If you want to scan something and email it to me, you can. Or, if you want it more personal, you can send stuff to mt through the (snail) mail.

If you get stuck on what to write, this is sort of how I wrote to Jonas this year. It's easier than holding a guy back for 10 minutes after training
INTRO
-Who you are
-What you do / Where you're from

THE PLAYER
-When/Where you first saw/heard about him?
-How did he get your attention? What made him stand out from the crowd?
-Stand out matches / head to heads etc.
-Have they influenced your opinions on tennis?

CONCLUDE
-Re-hash the above points, if you want to thank / congratulate them for something.
-Wish them all the best
-Sign off. Some people like to leave an email address
.
