Fans-->Tournament reports + Announcements

EDIT:: I figured this thread could be used to post links to related websites and similar things. I just uploaded some new photo albums online and wanted to share them with you guys

ok, ok... the title is a work in progress! But some of us will be at the Aussie tournaments soon, & I'm gonna try to come on the net to post my daily activities. I'll probably need someone to go to the Jonas group, and paste what I've written in here. It's highly unlikely that I'll answer any questions here, until I'm back in Sydney (Jan 6/7) and after the Aus Open. I'll have internet access between the 6th & 11th of January.

I'll prob answer questions in the Jonas group, because it's tough to get internet access in the melbourne hostel. Anyway, that's about it! I'll post here soon and hopefully, those of you that go to other tournaments throughout the year, can write your own stories By then, we'll change the title of the thread I think?

Thanks Peggy!
The new address is:

I really hope he will play there too I'm sick of him withdrawing from so many tournaments... but... I'd rather he get over this injury before it does some serious damage.

Re: Tournament reports: By the fans

heya BGirl

its going to take a lot by soderling and JJ in 2005 to take me away from the hewitt forum

i'm still in chennai but it goes without saying i'm feeling like crap at the moment given what has happened here so am planning to leave on New Year's day - unfortunately the connecting flight from singapore is full so might need to stay there for a day

in any case i'll definitely be back home for the sydney tournament next week!

Re: Tournament reports: By the fans

Lleyton Hewitt... so not my type of player For one, he's aussie! But his connections to other tennis players are impeccable (sp?)

Re: Tournament reports: By the fans

I wrote this in the yahoo group, but dont have time to answer questions here, so if you've got something to ask, please do it in the yahoo gorup! Thanks

Today:
Amer Delic df Alex Bogomolov. And rightly so. Alex had a habit of
throwing his racquet around, and although he's polite and nice off
court, he was acting like an ass today. I doubt he gained many fans!
(Amer kinda looks like a good looking federer... peta, dont judge
him yet :P Wait til you see him! )

Saw Lars Graff Got a pic, LOL!

Enqvist made Sluiter look like a beginner! Now, I like Raemon, but
Thomas is Swedish, so he's my priority! He was playing beautifully,
at one stage he had 40-00 and went for a dropshot. It was crap,
barely hit the net onhis side... so he walked back to the crowd,
gesturing a gun(with his fingers) to his head. The crowd found it
highly amusing, and he went on to win that game. You couldnt help
but feel bad for Raemon. He couldnt get his serves in, a lot of
balls were going wide. He was all over the place, but he was a
gentleman about it.

Baccanello vs Saulnier. Saulnier is cool! He got a foot fault, and
when the ball came back, he kicked it, and it hit a ballgirl. Next
ppoint was match point, so he walked to the net, shook baccanello's
hand, and then waited to see if the girl was ok, before shaking the
ump's hand. He shook the girls hand too Sweet! (So Sorry about
all the errors! I'm in a rush)

Jurgen vs Berdych64 46 63
Jurgen played beautiful tennis in the first set! In the second, he
served first, lost it and never quite recovered. Ah well, in typical
Jurgen style he made it in 3 He made a few double faults, as did
Tomas. Both their first serves were pretty sh!t! otherwise serving
was good. few errors... I sat a couple of seats across from his
coach, but as kat and i have been saying lately "I was here first".

Simon Aspelin - Left after he won the first set Some foot faults,
Simon hit it at Haggard a couple of times. There were a LOT of
Aussie spectators (about 30-40, and later built up to around 50..)
and Graydon Oliver and Jim Thomas were keen to have a look. at 5-6
in the third, Simon was throwing/bouncing his racquet! Very pissed,
I never saw him so angry! lol (and even then, he was subdued. He's
swedish after all). They came back and won the set in a TIEBREAK!!

Met Jim Thomas. Guys, he's really nice. If you see him at a
tournament, you should go and say gday. He's so welcoming! And he
has that 'friendly' look about him
