Newbie is as newbie does

Hi all-
I'm Paige and I'm new to your forum, though so not new to tennis.
I've been looking around and reading everyone's posts and you all seem interesting and funny and especially all-knowing.

Let's see:
My faves: Andre Agassi, Marat Safin, Roger Federer, Lindsey Davenport, Steffi Graf.
Also been-known-to-root-fors: Jiri Novak, Justine Henin-Hardenne, Serena Williams, James Blake.

I like all of those players!

But Agassi is my favorite.

i picked marat from the poll

How many times must we of shot nerves witness the undoubted pain & suffering of muppets everywhere before we stand up against the cavemen??

One muppet, who wishes to remain anonymous, has this to say: "You know, I uhhhh cannot stay all the time at the you know, base of the line. Too much uhhhh pression."

It is your turn to help - The "Save A Muppet Foundation" needs you!
