I always felt like I lived in the wrong country during my RafterFan years...

Its pretty much a dilemma now for me, I have the financial freedom to travel to wherever I choose, but lack the family freedom to do so. Next year, for example, I am going to Miami and Madrid for sure, maybe Roland Garros or Wimbledon, depends on work.

I didn't have the time to follow the tennis as much during Uni years, picked it up again once I graduated, though. Then along came Pat Rafter, and I was addicted to the sport all over again.

about the *innocent girl* remark, Esther.

That's why I had to invest in serious camera equipment. Makes me look pseudo-legitimate.

When all else fails, I bring my kids. Who can resist a smiling seven year old with a missing front tooth?

Ahhhh and the number two rule: I also prefer to attend the tournaments solo. I sometimes will have a friend or two with me at times, but absolutely avoid the group thing like the plague.

Nahhh, wouldn't send the kids with prezzies. Instead, I make them ask for the autographs in the players' native languages. That way its educational for them. Teaches them respect for other cultures and all...now they also know from where all the players are...

Best story: I was chatting with Nick Carr, Martin Verkirk's coach, after his practice at Delray. Robbie listened for a while (Nick has a lovely Kiwi accent) and then looked straight at him and asked, "Do you know the Wiggles?" He had never heard a Kiwi accent and had confused it with an Aussie one!!! Nick thought it verrrry humorous to say the very least.

Re: Arnaud,Paulo and many more to play an exhibition in Geneva!

lol @ the wiggles thing..that would have been so cute!!

yeah going in a group to tournaments would be a real pain...we went with about like...5 or 6 people to Australian Open last year and although it wasnt as bad as i would have thought coz they knew how if i didnt get to see who i wanted to see i would crack it so they had to be nice lol but i think the best would be going with one other person coz if exciting stuff happened there would have to be someone there to share it with!!

thats really interesting that you get ur kids to ask for autographs in their languages!! thats a really smart idea.
