I didn't ask cos I figured you didn't want to tell us and that if you did, you would. Glad you are ok and you have somewhere to stay.

hewitt is baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaack:

Hewitt accepts wild card to US Clay Courts
AFP, Mar 22, 2010, 11.01pm IST




: March 21HOUSTON: Defending champion Lleyton Hewitt of Australia will make his return from a right hip operation in January at next month's ATP US Clay Court Championships, the ATP Tour announced Monday.

Former world number one Hewitt has accepted a wild-card entry into the April 5-11 event at River Oaks Country Club.

"I'm really looking forward to returning to defend my title in Houston," said Hewitt. "I couldn't think of a better place to come back on to the Tour after an injury."

Hewitt suffered the injury while playing in the Hopman Cup in early January and underwent surgery in Hobart to repair a torn labrum after a fourth-round loss to Swiss star Roger Federer at the Australian Open.

Hewitt, ranked 24th by the ATP, underwent a similar operation on his left hip two years ago.

Last year, Hewitt rolled to the title without losing a set. This time, he hopes to become the first back-to-back champion since American Andy Roddick in 2001 and 2002.

"When we got the call that Lleyton was progressing faster than expected on his recovery, we were very pleased to offer him a wild card," said Clay Courts director Van Barry. "We look forward to him coming back."

Hewitt is fourth among active ATP players with 27 career titles, including the 2001 US Open and 2002 Wimbledon titles.

they all say julius erving. that answer is pretty close jose but it is not the right one. the correct answer is Rick Barry.

what do john havlicek and bobby knight have in common? you really have to know your basketball history to know the answer to some of these questions.

Barry the underhand free throw king. How could I. His son Brent was fun to watch.

You lost me on that second question. Unless the answer is they both played in Ohio State.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Such a long time since I've been here again but I see Jason is cheating on me here with José... I should come more often

Re: •°o*Ye Olde Castle vol.27

Well to sum it up quickly, u dumped Habib and got together with me Then I found out u were cheating on me with Stan, and we fell apart, then u and Stan got married and he got the right to keep his daughter, and then 18 years later she became world number 1 in the WTA.

Re: •°o*Ye Olde Castle vol.27

unbelievable stuff. "ohio state" is right.

my dad snatched a doctorate from ohio state in pathogenic bacteriology so i used to keep up a little with that school when i was into basketball. i dont really follow the sport any longer.

barry did indeed shoot his free throws underhanded. his accuracy was mind numbing. i forgot what i had read but it was close to 90% i believe whic is just sick.

and his son brent was good.

I think with languages, it's the sooner the better. We don't learn enough here or early enough.

Re: •°o*Ye Olde Castle vol.27

just 8 more posts to go castlers. go ahead and run up the post count and hit 5000 posts.

then move to the non tennis section and start posting at our volume #28.

this way the mods/super mods wil get a chance to close the existing volume (volume #27) and it will also allow them to move volume #28 here sooner to the chat section where we belong.

thanks.
