Thank you.
No more question about Jan-Michael for the moment...
But, what about you ? Do you have the luck to see him often ? Do you leave near his town or do you meet him on tournaments ?

Re: Jan Michael Gambill

Well Sophie (which is also my cousin's name by the way), I wish I could see him more than I do. We met in 2002 at a tournament and he remembered me a few months later in 2003 when we saw each other in San Jose. I was lucky that year, I got to see him 5 times (San Jose, Indian Wells, flew to Houston tournament and he took care of my tickets for me, Los Angeles, and then I flew up to Portland for Superset to surprise him - and it worked). I only saw him twice this year (San Jose and Indian Wells, but we never spoke at IW). Lucky for me, we exchange emails and have IM chats from time to time, so he gives me info for my site and we talk about whatever comes up (oddly enough, we talk about cars a lot, I'm fascinated by his collection of Jaguars and this Aston Martin that he wants to buy). He sent me that picture from his vacation in Hawaii and that was very nice of him to do. Overall, he's a pretty good guy. Hopefully I'll see him again next year at least once. I'd like to see all my other 'tennis boys' too. I'm very fond of some of these guys.

What kind of Aston Martin does JMG want? i've always liked astons, and i think it's awesome that me and one of my favorite tennis players share a love for them. there are a few things that i can talk about for hours, and 2 of those things are tennis and cars. my favorite aston is the DB7 vantage, but i bet JMG likes the v12 vanquish... just a guess though. it's the more expensive of the 2, but they look similar.

i know i heard that JMG likes playing xbox in his time off (especially Halo), so do you know if he has Halo 2 yet? that's also something i like... i wish i could play with him... hehe it would be fun.

Re: Jan Michael Gambill

He's wanted a DB9 for over a year now. I accused him of 'cheating' on Jaguar the first time he told me, so he won't always discuss it with me ( ). I think he's going to get it once his house is finished. He is definitely a videogame junkie, but he plays so many of them I would have to ask him what his favorite is these days. How good are you at Halo 2? You never know, you might end up playing him one day if you knew someone with connections...

Re: Jan Michael Gambill

i just read that the DB9 is replacing the DB7! so in actuality, we liked the same car... but i still like the DB7 vantage better!

Re: Jan Michael Gambill

I can't believe I'm doing this...

I sent this to JMG as a joke last year, part of the Christmas gift that we did for him. Here is a picture of the car that he is lusting after...

Re: Jan Michael Gambill

Oh don't be jealous, that was in 2003. There are three tournaments in California each year and next year I may only get to one of them for one or two days. I may not see him at all (which I haven't told him yet, it just depresses me to think of it).

Re: Jan Michael Gambill

Who books your holidays woman? How can you have grass court tournaments so close and not get to at least one? If I ever get over to England in June I am coming to your house and dragging you out by your earlobe.

(and your roddickonline email isn't working, I've had two come back to me....)
