A friendly Hello

Hi! My name is Matt and I'm thirteen years old. I really like watching tennis (the hobby only developed this summer because of the Olympics, though). I have been playing tennis since I've been a wee-little kid, but I've never been that good. I quit recently because of Piano, but hopefully I'll pick it up again soon with my new interest of watching tennis back ^_^

My idol and favorite player is Andy Roddick. My second favorite player is Lleyton Hewitt. My favorite female player is Maria Sharapova. Apart from that, I'm indifferent to all others >> << >>. Oh well.

I really like forums but this is my first time at a Tennis one. I'm into video games - so I've joined several relating to those - and I really enjoy television - so I've joined a few of those too. Nice to be here ^_^

Re: A friendly Hello

Hello!

Warning: a few people will probably jump on you for making a "hello" thread, despite the fact that they made their own mocking threads, which wasted just as much bandwidth as those that they criticized. Ignore these people

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: A friendly Hello

Sorry Amanda! I didn't realize. Can you change that message at the top? It says "Why don't you introduce yourself in the General Messages forum?" and links me to that forum. Just to help you in lightening the moving load, LOL.

Thanks for the warm welcome Amanda & Chloe. Always nice to know that nice people are 'round. And if people jump on me... I'll run and they'll fall

Re: A friendly Hello

Yep I've only just created this forum about five minutes ago, so you did nothing wrong. I'll update the header in a moment to avoid the confusion.

I hope you have fun here.

Slow down, bad gambler! You'll be passed out before the first service game!


Amanda, is it possible to put a sticky at the top of GM to remind MTFers to greet the newcomers?

Re: A friendly Hello

Thanks JMP. If you think I'm funny, you should meet the folks at PE2K XD You'd die of laughter. Unfortunately, I don't think any of you hold any interest in Pokémon sooo.... XD

Marat? Hmm, never really saw him play. Will soon though

Hi Matt, I'm Matt too! And I play piano and like Andy Roddick. I relate to you already.

Re: A friendly Hello

Matt

I'm Christina, and Lleyton and Andy are two of my favorite tennis players too. Maria is one of my favorite female players.

Men who play the piano are sexy.

I hope you become a life time tennis fan.
