So, my intro.

Hi there.

So, my intro.

I've been following tennis for a while now. I've been fortunate enough to see plenty of great players since my childhood. (I started really paying attention when Lendl was ruling the tour.)

I love GS tennis enough to watch the AO live, even on a weekday. Living in Montreal, this means a couple of weeks looking pretty much like a zombie. Totally worth it: this year because of Federer-Tipsarevic was a classic.

Agassi is, in my book, the greatest ever for winning all 4 majors on 4 different surfaces. I hope Federer will join him. Borg with his 3 RG-Wimbledon doubles is close behind.

I love the current era. Federer will probably end up with the most GS titles when he's done; Nadal will always be remembered as a clay magician even if his body breaks down tomorow. Roddick is my favorite player, he gives the best show on and off the courts.

The one guy I hate with a passion is the one that is so full of himself the he has a book titled "My First Grand Slam". The kid rubs me the wrong way. Hope his first GS was also his last.

Also, English is my second language, so please be kind if I sometimes do make any sense at all.

So, à bientôt.

Welcome, I attended the 2005 Montreal tournament and had a great time. Loved the city as well.

Re: So, my intro.

Thanks for the nice official welcome in here Denaon and bad gambler. Thanks also to Leo, my first rep, and also P. Antonius, Bachelor Dandy, NYCtennisfan, Bremen, Manon, I♥PsY@Mus!c for the good vibes.

Also, hello to the people in the food thread who have been nice enough to acknowledge a newbie right from the start.

Hope to hear again from you all.

Re: So, my intro.

Hey Big John! Great intro, thanks for taking the time. I think you are good for MTF and your English is just fine (I would never have known if you hadn't said anything, half the native speakers around here are worse ).

Yeah, don't sign with your initials.

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: So, my intro.

You are too kind Fee, and thanks scarecrows.

I just forgot to mention the people in the tatoo poll section. Good people too, but some appear to be voyeurs.

(yeah, I'm talking about you Louche. C'est très louche...)

I did not want to be rude.

See you!

Re: So, my intro.

I'm not that much of a voyeur. Just helpful.

I lived on Fullum near Parc LaFontaine, some time on St. Mathieu and more time on du Fort in the west many years ago. The Forum was still there. I moved a lot as well.

I'm an anglo, though. You probably guessed.

Nice to meet you.

Re: So, my intro.

Hi there Lee, I'll take Montreal over Calgary anyday thank you very much, but I'd gladly trade the Rockies for the Laurentides. Deal?

And partygirl, you said I should thank you, so thanks, and you were right, it IS quite a release.
