Hi, I'm new

Hi,

I'm new to this forum - this is my first post so please bear with me.
I stumbled across this by accident, but very glad I did - now I can talk to other Seb fans and not get that "I've switched off" look!

So hello to everyone, I'm looking forward to chatting about all things Sebastien..!

Cheers

Rebel

Answers to questions



Thanks for all of the nice welcomes...I've found my flock!!

To answer Esther's questions -

I'm from Wollongong - south of Sydney.

I found the site purely by accident - I think I typed Seb's name then discussion or something similar (as opposed to Seb - naked, which is what my husband jokingly says I'm looking for!)

I only like Sebastien, I mean if i paid enough attention to other players, I may find someone I liked.. Pat Rafter was great too, but I'm not a huge fan or anything.

Re: Aus Open - I had plans to check it out, I usually just watch it on TV but I'd love to go. Does anyone else have plans?? (This is probably a monumentally dumb question, but i had to ask.)

The Funky Chicken site is very amusing/insightful - I wish I could read French!

Thanks for the welcome

I too found this site by accident.I think I've trawled through hundreds of 'Seb' sites on the net,but it's nice to find one up to date

Rebel,you said your husband 'jokingly' suggested you're trying to find Seb-naked If you find anything,let us know

Anyone would think I have a complete lack of integrity, but it's not true! Honestly!! I'm completely innocent!

I did come across a pic of Seb in the water (semi-naked!!), but I'm sure you all must have seen it too.

Hey, what's all this stuff about his wife? I've seen a pic of a woman of one of his web sites (the same one with the swimming pic) but I don't know if it's her.

Also - I neeed to know about the Australian Open because I want to go. I have time off work in January and I want to be there. If anyone has some inside info regarding tickets, best times to go etc - cos I'd like to at least catch a couple of Sebastien's games. Esther, you must be pretty young since you mentioned your parents, oh crap, it must mean I'm really old then?? How old are you guys??

Alison, if I find anything worthwhile - you'll be the first to know!!

Re: Hi, I'm new

rebel-
umm well what do you want to know about his wife? she's really old shes like 8 years older than him and used to be involved with tennis or something. neone know what shes up to nowadays?

ummm for days to go during AO...the best days to go would be the first two days i guess if you want to catch Seb, but go to the week before it starts for qualifying and stuf (which is free). i think i'm going to do that next year coz its the best chance to see everyone....but yeah if you want to see doubles as well then the best chance to see who you want would be to go either wednesday or thursday coz hopefully they would still be in second round singles and starting first round doubles.

i just turned sweeet 16 i'm the youngest around here i guess

thanks for that esther!You've really cheered me up today!

I've never classed myself as 'really old'! as I am about the same age as Seb's wife.There's still life in me though!!!!!
There's more of an age gap between you and Seb though,so doesn't that mean that you fancy someone really old!

Rebel,I've got that photo of Seb in the water too.I sometimes use it as a screensaver.There's usually a different one on every other day;just to annoy my 'other half'!

(been having trouble with this site today.It keeps going weird on me!)
