Re: Jan Michael Gambill

yeah roddickonline is moving host again so i can't get into my email use my yahoo one thewhiteladyofrohan@yahoo.co.uk

my parents book it damn them! even if i do manage to get to the tournaments chances of me getting tickets for the court i want is slim to none unfortunately, i usedto live right next to wimbledon and still struggled to get tickets and i don't live that close i live 90 miles away now and don't drive i have applied for the public ballot though but i always do and never get anywhere

Good Luck to my boys

Re: Jan Michael Gambill

ask mr roddick to hook you up with some tix

has he never contacted you ever?


I have been offered/invited to tournaments by Venus Williams' sister(not Serena)

But now I can get a Press Pass to tournaments

The bad news is the hotel and airfare is like 1,000

Re: Jan Michael Gambill

Well, it does save you a few pennies.

I had a press pass for Superset last year and JMG nearly fell over when he looked up and saw me there. I had a photo pass for Indian Wells this year, which was great fun, but incredibly distracting during JanMike's match against Roddick (I still have no real idea what happened in that match, need to watch the tape some day). It's kind of cool to go to the player interviews after their matches and everything, but it was too much work for me to try to keep track of all the action at IW, try to figure out which courts to go and photograph, and so on, so I don't think I'll be doing it anymore. I kind of decided to go to LA at the last minute in July, but I still managed to get my tickets covered. The most fun I've had at tournaments were the ones that I volunteered for, so you should definitely look in to doing that. That's how I met Andy back in 2002, and that led (indirectly) to meeting JMG, and then Graydon. The people you work with are usually pretty cool too.

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: Jan Michael Gambill

i would, but there are a few problems...
1. a place to stay. i'd have to get a hotel, which would cost $ which i don't have.
2. i'd want to watch the tennis instead of working, so i'd probably end up getting fired. they'd catch on to me "volunteering" just so i could get in for free.

Re: Jan Michael Gambill

The hotel is the hardest part of it, I always try to stay somewhere safe, but cheap. You wouldn't get fired for watching tennis. Most of the shifts are 4 hours and you just kind of 'hang around' after that. I bet you'll end up doing it some day.

WOW!
I think everyone on the board has some kind of contacts of their own, they just don't boast about it like you..

Good luck in the new year JMG!

Re: Jan Michael Gambill

Hi Sophie.

No news from JMG lately. I did chat with him briefly the day he got home from Hawaii and he was pretty tired. Haven't heard from him since, haven't even seen him online more than once or twice for just a minute or two. I think he's tuned out tennis for a little while, to spend time with his family and such.

Happy Holidays everyone.

Re: Jan Michael Gambill

Nice just to know JMG is well, and enjoying himself. Every player on the tour (bar Wessels ) deserves to just take the break and make the most of it.

Merry Christmas to everyone

Re: Jan Michael Gambill

Peggy, these are absolutely excellent pictures of him. I know you've already sent me some for my site, can I use these too? And that last one for my avatar? Do you have more that you haven't told me about?

On another note, I just got some news from JMG. It's on my homepage.
