Hi nimi!

Nimi
08-23-2002, 01:40 PM
Damn WTAworld, it crahsed completely. But at least we have ATPworld... Oh what am i talking about... :sad:

karenrac
08-23-2002, 01:43 PM
I wrote the US Open preview for Anna S, and sent it by PM to Aaron... I guess that's gone now

Nimi
08-23-2002, 01:47 PM
He said he got yours, & i wrote him another one after seeing the draw, so we have two previews, now the site looks bigger :D

I found an article that was put in Haaretz after Anna won Canberra

karenrac
08-23-2002, 01:50 PM
good to know, but when I logged to the smashnova site, I saw the New Haven article.

Nimi
08-23-2002, 01:52 PM
Ill try to log on there, lets see what he sent them..

Nimi
08-23-2002, 01:54 PM
Ok the last article is the New Haven one... Damn...

karenrac
08-23-2002, 01:54 PM
How the hell did you talk to him, btw?

karenrac
08-23-2002, 01:55 PM
I took me so long to do that preview... and it was a nice and long one... pfff

Nimi
08-23-2002, 01:56 PM
Mine is written in the Anna forum...
I managed to talk to him two days ago.

karenrac
08-23-2002, 01:58 PM
I can't e-mail him or PM him here, and I can't access the wtaworld...

karenrac
08-23-2002, 01:59 PM
So what will happen to the Anna site?

Nimi
08-23-2002, 02:02 PM
I have no idea :eek:

karenrac
08-23-2002, 02:04 PM
Did you hear something about the Israelis at the US Open? I only know that Noam Okun beat Noam Ber.

Nimi
08-23-2002, 02:05 PM
Ya i know :sad:

Noam Okun & Amir Hadad are both in the final of qualifying

karenrac
08-23-2002, 02:07 PM
oh, I didn't know that Hadad reached the finals of qualifing. Did he and the Pakistani get a WC to the doubles?

Nimi
08-23-2002, 02:15 PM
I dont have a clue. I should check that.
I think someone hates me, WTAworld is down & i cut myself during shaving & it fucking burns :sad:

karenrac
08-23-2002, 02:16 PM
my parents and brother came home from thier vacation... And they can't stop yelling at me!

Nimi
08-23-2002, 02:18 PM
They came back? Was there a party at some point?

Rhythmboy
08-23-2002, 02:19 PM
Hi you guys, can I join you? I bored to hell since there's no WTAworld...

Nimi
08-23-2002, 02:21 PM
Ok, sup RB?

karenrac
08-23-2002, 02:22 PM
you can join, and no there was no party, just some friends sleeping over

Nimi
08-23-2002, 02:23 PM
Oh, well thats good enough. Was it at least fun?

karenrac
08-23-2002, 02:23 PM
:sad:

Rhythmboy
08-23-2002, 02:24 PM
i'm going to a party this evening :bounce:

karenrac
08-23-2002, 02:25 PM
yes, it was fun, but them my parents came back...

Nimi
08-23-2002, 02:25 PM
Was is that bad Karen? Im sure there was something fun about it.

Cool, what kind of party? A usual dancing party or something speciel?

karenrac
08-23-2002, 02:26 PM

Mikey
08-23-2002, 02:27 PM

karenrac
08-23-2002, 02:29 PM
I'm ok

karenrac
08-23-2002, 02:30 PM
I miss the wtaworld...

Nimi
08-23-2002, 02:30 PM
Mike!!! Whatsup?? Im glad you decided to join us here :D

Nimi
08-23-2002, 02:30 PM
Ya me too :sad:

Mikey
08-23-2002, 02:31 PM
hey nimi and karen!!!! (btw, karen, this is formarly niftymk, if you didn't know)

yeah, im good. kinda bored though - was hoping that wtaworld would be up by now so i could do some stuff there for a little bit, but.....

Nimi
08-23-2002, 02:32 PM
But noooooo, WTAWorld will probably not be up untill the end of the US Open, just what i think :sad:

Rhythmboy
08-23-2002, 02:33 PM
ahum: wedding party :o

Rhythmboy
08-23-2002, 02:34 PM
the end of the US open???? :sad:

Mikey
08-23-2002, 02:34 PM
lol, let's hope not. the problem is, sooner or later, everyone's gonna realize that it's down so they're all gonna be here! and then this is gonna crash! oy - let's hope it doesn't get to that ;)

Mikey
08-23-2002, 02:35 PM
does anyone even know what the problem is?

karenrac
08-23-2002, 02:35 PM
oh, don't say that Mike!

Nimi
08-23-2002, 02:35 PM
Ya, the server sucks.

Mikey
08-23-2002, 02:39 PM
lol - sorry karen :o

guys, i have a question. if i made a thread to have people post messages to give to anna smashnova at the us open, would you guys post in there? cause i was gonna do it, but i couldnt figure it out. then i decided to just do it on wtaworld and copy and paste later, but it broke down. now i see there's a little "show printable version" in the bottom of the screen :) so it'd be easier to do it. and why not just do it here? people'll be mad, but that's too bad.

karenrac
08-23-2002, 02:40 PM
I'd be happy to write Anna a messege. Are you going to the US Open?

Mikey
08-23-2002, 02:41 PM

Nimi
08-23-2002, 02:41 PM

Mikey
08-23-2002, 02:41 PM

Nimi
08-23-2002, 02:42 PM
Good. Now the party can begin :D

Mikey
08-23-2002, 02:42 PM
lol @ nimi - how'd you do that so fast? :eek: :eek:

Nimi
08-23-2002, 02:42 PM
I invited Kerry over via e-mail & Aaron has the same name like in WTAworld

karenrac
08-23-2002, 02:43 PM
We have "Israel masters"?!
Aaron is here

Mikey
08-23-2002, 02:43 PM

Mikey
08-23-2002, 02:43 PM

Mikey
08-23-2002, 02:44 PM
ok, thanx guys....ill pm aaron and just wait for kerry

Nimi
08-23-2002, 02:44 PM
Why thank you. Since last year the Israel Masters was in my home city & i got to see Amir Hadad (!) play maybe this year other Israel tennis stars like Anna Smashnova, Harel Levy & Noam Okun can come, & i wish it will be in Raanana again.

karenrac
08-23-2002, 02:44 PM
I write a message for Anna later, Mike

Izzy
08-23-2002, 02:45 PM
Ahh, brumshire. I missed this place :sad: Although really it should be purple :p

Nimi
08-23-2002, 02:45 PM
Israel Master is the Israel Champioships, its for Israelis only.

Mikey
08-23-2002, 02:46 PM
that's fine karen - just letting ya know its there now

nimi - where did u put ur message...lol

karenrac
08-23-2002, 02:46 PM
and again, what the hell is the Israeli masters? Is it the Israeli closed tennis championships?

Nimi
08-23-2002, 02:47 PM
Thats what i said i belive

karenrac
08-23-2002, 02:49 PM
you didn't
Last year Anna wasn't even there

Nimi
08-23-2002, 02:51 PM
I know, Shahar won it, & i got to see her too :D

karenrac
08-23-2002, 02:54 PM
oh, I saw it on TV on channel 5. She beat Sabranski in straight sets, something like 6-0 6-2

Mikey
08-23-2002, 02:58 PM
ok, ill cya later guys :wavey: :kiss:

Nimi
08-23-2002, 02:58 PM
OMG, i went to that semi final of Sabranski-Nimrovski with a friend of mine & she started qustioning line calls & stuff & my friend looked at her (Sabranski) & she started shouting at him like "What are you looking at?!?"

That was fucking hularious!!!

karenrac
08-23-2002, 02:59 PM
cya later too!
btw nimi, I bought the venus envy book from amazon and finished reading it already.

Nimi
08-23-2002, 03:00 PM
Bye Mikey :wavey:

karenrac
08-23-2002, 03:00 PM
this year I'll go, if the army lets me

Nimi
08-23-2002, 03:01 PM
Wow you are fast. Its a nice one isnt it?

karenrac
08-23-2002, 03:01 PM
Did you know that Tzipi Obziler is rejoining the tour?

Nimi
08-23-2002, 03:02 PM
Cool, im going too, we can meet there :D

karenrac
08-23-2002, 03:02 PM
I realy liked the book. And since English is my native language aswell as hebrew, it took me only a few days to finish the book

Nimi
08-23-2002, 03:02 PM
She is?? Awsome! Go Tzipi! I really feel like she has a top 100 potentiel

karenrac
08-23-2002, 03:03 PM
When are the Israeli championships? I remember it's somewhere in November-December, right?

karenrac
08-23-2002, 03:05 PM
yes, Tzipi found sponsors and will play 20-25 tournaments a year!

Nimi
08-23-2002, 03:07 PM
Go Tzipi!! :D :D :D

Ya, its in December i belive.

Nimi
08-23-2002, 03:08 PM
In Sukot

karenrac
08-23-2002, 03:09 PM
Sukot is September! and I'll join the army in September 17th in the middle of Sukot

Nimi
08-23-2002, 03:11 PM
Oh. Well its possibly in Hanuka (spl). In one of those anyways.

karenrac
08-23-2002, 03:12 PM
yes, then Hanuka it is. Hopefully somehow I'll be able to go, provided I won't serve in a closed base

Irish
08-23-2002, 03:13 PM
Hello Everybody :wavey:

This is so sad. Haven't been able to get on WTA for two days. :mad::sad: At least we have refuge here. :D

Nimi
08-23-2002, 03:14 PM
Kerry!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Irish
08-23-2002, 03:14 PM
That was my first post!!! :bounce:

Hey, whose the guy with big teeth in my smilie?

karenrac
08-23-2002, 03:14 PM
Hi Kerry, just as you came I have to go... Hope the wtaworld will work soon

Irish
08-23-2002, 03:15 PM
Nimi!!!!! :bounce:

Karen!!!! :bounce:

Mike!!!!! :bounce:

karenrac
08-23-2002, 03:15 PM
congratiolations for your very first post!

karenrac
08-23-2002, 03:16 PM
nimi, how the hell do you have so many posts?

Nimi
08-23-2002, 03:16 PM
LMAO Kerry, thats the new : D :D

Irish
08-23-2002, 03:16 PM
Thank you Sweet Karen. :)

Are you getting nervous about the Army?

I need to find an avatar of a player I can drool over. :)

karenrac
08-23-2002, 03:17 PM
I am very nervous, cuz the army won't tell me what I'll do there, and where... Plus, I have no friends joining the army with me

karenrac
08-23-2002, 03:19 PM
I realy have to go now! see ya later!

Nimi
08-23-2002, 03:19 PM
You will be just ok, remember, if someone pisses you off, you have a gun :eek:

Nimi
08-23-2002, 03:20 PM
Bye Karen :wavey:

karenrac
08-23-2002, 03:20 PM
I'm not a person that can handle a gun... Plus, my physical shape is crap

karenrac
08-23-2002, 03:21 PM
Bye Finally!

karenrac
08-23-2002, 03:21 PM
oh god, why Federer Kerry? He's ugly

Irish
08-23-2002, 03:24 PM
Karen :sad:

You will be just fine. I am in the U.S. Air Force and not a very good aim with a gun/rifle but I know I can do my best if needed.

Karen, you don't think Roger is cute? I couldn't find Pat Rafter and Marat and Andre were my other choices.

Goodbye Karen (if you have left)

Irish
08-23-2002, 03:26 PM
Has WTA really crashed or is it just down? :sad:

karenrac
08-23-2002, 03:26 PM
I'm still here, just pissing my parents off. I like Agassi and Hewitt, but I just can't stand Federer's nose...
How is it in the air force btw?

karenrac
08-23-2002, 03:27 PM
I couldn't acess the wtaworld since Wednesday night

karenrac
08-23-2002, 03:29 PM
you can check the many threads talking about the wtaworld in here, in GM and in the errors section, I think
and finally goodbye Kerry once agia, I'm realy going now

karenrac
08-23-2002, 03:30 PM
Agassi!!! :hearts: :hearts: :hearts:

Irish
08-23-2002, 03:31 PM
For Karen and Esra, I have changed to Andre. I love his game. :) I also like Costa from the choices. Nimi, I am surprised you don't have Tim for your avatar. (runs away fast)

Why are your parents pissed off?

It is okay now. Most of my first years were outstanding but it is going downhill now because of the officers. :mad:

Irish
08-23-2002, 03:33 PM
Oh good, then I made a good choice. :):)

Yes, Roger's nose doesn't fit his face. :sad:

Wednesday night I could get on and early Thurs until 1100AM but after that, could not get on. :mad:

:wavey: Bye Karen

Nimi
08-23-2002, 03:35 PM
Errr... Tim? Perhaps its a good idea?

Irish

You are so crazy Nimi. :):) I kind of like the other one better.

I sure hope this board doesn't crash. Never thought it would happen but I am going into withdrawal for not having the WTA board working. Guess alot of people are having the problem from the posts I have seen on this board.

Nimi
08-23-2002, 03:42 PM
Pretty much everybody i think

Irish
08-23-2002, 03:44 PM
I thought you didn't like Tim.

Nimi
08-23-2002, 03:44 PM
I loooooooooooooooooooooooove him! :p

He is my idol & i love the shape of his body (teeth especielly!)

Irish
08-23-2002, 03:45 PM
That is too bad. Everybody will have to find other things to do then. The clouds are out now so can't sunbathe at the moment.
:(

Nimi
08-23-2002, 03:46 PM
You can try in another was like spilling boiling water on your skin. It might hurt but its as effective :p

Irish
08-23-2002, 03:47 PM
You are a trip Nimi. :):)

He is a little skinny. I wonder if his teeth were not so great before he became rich or even able to afford care for them. In U.S., it is expensive.

Irish
08-23-2002, 03:49 PM
Yikes! I am not a masochist. Usually tan so not many sunburns.

Irish
08-23-2002, 03:50 PM
Oh yeah, Nimi, how did you get so many posts? That was quick!!!

Nimi
08-23-2002, 03:50 PM
Errr, say, do u know the TV show Pasadina? Im not sure that this is the name of it in english though.

ASV
08-23-2002, 03:52 PM
it is a wonder irish......

some people haev conversations...its quite confusing

Irish
08-23-2002, 03:53 PM
Is it a soap opera?

Nimi
08-23-2002, 03:54 PM
Nope, its like a thriller show. I saw the 1st chapter here in Israel & i think i found a new fave show :D

Irish
08-23-2002, 03:56 PM
Yes Scott, we are talking various subjects. :D Please call me Kerry, if you like. :wavey:

Irish
08-23-2002, 03:58 PM
Nimi, is it on primetime or during the day?

Nimi
08-23-2002, 03:59 PM
primetime here

Irish
08-23-2002, 04:01 PM
I am checking for the tennis matches on TV. Comes on in about an hour. My girls Nastya, Lindsay, and Daniela have won theirs yesterday. :)

Irish
08-23-2002, 04:03 PM
It will be on later for us then as it is 1100AM here in Central time.

I was taping Nastya's match last night and since I went to bed and didn't edit the commercials, it ran out of tape when she was starting the fourth game of the third set. :mad:

Nimi
08-23-2002, 04:06 PM
Does is matter? She won the final set easily.
Anyways, the matches start in 45 minutes here.

Irish
08-23-2002, 04:07 PM
I wanted to see a big smile on her face for winning. :) And plus, for bageling Martina which is rare.

Irish
08-23-2002, 04:08 PM
We are getting the match in 40 minutes but I am not sure who we will see.

Nimi
08-23-2002, 04:09 PM
Lindsay/Myskina, i guess.
The other match is Venus/?????

Irish
08-23-2002, 04:10 PM
I will have to "research" the board for all these symbols and stuff. Nothing like having a "wheat thin cracker" in the corner of every post. he he

Irish
08-23-2002, 04:11 PM
Oh, that will be Daniela and Venus. Go Daniela!!!!! :bounce:

I like Lindsay and Nastya so it will be okay for either to win. :)

Nimi
08-23-2002, 04:13 PM
Go Dani!!!
Dani is my only fave in those 4...

Irish
08-23-2002, 04:15 PM
I hope she wins for you Nimi. :):)

That is why I have so many favorites because at least one will win something.

Nimi
08-23-2002, 04:15 PM
I have around 15 i think.

Irish
08-23-2002, 04:18 PM
Where did Scott go? Guess it was a guest or cameo appearance.

Have you started school yet Nimi? Our youngsters have started already. Been two weeks or so.

Nimi
08-23-2002, 04:19 PM
Nope, school atarts at about a week :sad:

Irish
08-23-2002, 04:21 PM
I think I may have about 18. Just a little less on the men's side.

Couldn't find "Pasadena" in our newspaper TV guide. Maybe it is on another night here.

Irish
08-23-2002, 04:22 PM
Nimi :sad: What grade will you be in? 8th grade? Is is middle school or junior high?

We will miss you on the board while you are at school. :sad:

Nimi
08-23-2002, 04:23 PM
Its on thursday nights here.

Its on our main entertaiment channel-Channel 3, you dont have that channel.

Nimi
08-23-2002, 04:24 PM
Me? 9th grade
Middle school. & dont worry, here in Israel school is only 5, 6 hours.

Irish
08-23-2002, 04:30 PM
Ooh, that would be the first year of high school here. Some high schools though start at 10th grade and keep the 9th graders in middle school. Do they have the rule about having your birthday after Sep 1 that you can't start kindergarten until you are 5 since your b-day is Nov 1. A long time ago, you could start at 4 and then turn 5 in kindergarten. Now, they have to be 5 to start.

We may not have that show. Could not find it in the guide for Thursday.

Irish
08-23-2002, 04:32 PM
Doesn't sound like too bad of a school day. I loved high school. Only 6 classes and when I was in 12th grade, I only had 4 because I had enough credits to graduate. :D

Nimi
08-23-2002, 04:32 PM
I have no idea :confused:
All i know is that i skipped one year of pre-school cuz i was way too smart :D

Irish
08-23-2002, 04:33 PM
The second half of 12th grade, that is.;)

14 minutes to go!!!

Nimi
08-23-2002, 04:34 PM
18 here, is it matters :o

Irish
08-23-2002, 04:34 PM
I believe you. :)

Irish
08-23-2002, 04:36 PM
Maybe we are 7 hours, 56 minutes behind you. ;) ha ha

Nimi
08-23-2002, 04:36 PM
Me too :)

Irish
08-23-2002, 04:40 PM
Sorry Nimi but I am going to set up my VCR for the match.

Take care and I might "see you" later. Be safe. :hearts:

:wavey:

Nimi
08-23-2002, 04:45 PM
Thanx, im going to watch it too!! Bye now!

Irish
08-23-2002, 04:46 PM
Hi Nimi, I am back for a minute. Ariel Sharon was supposed to come to Florida on Sep 9 but it has been cancelled.

Said it was because of security issues and political obligations at home. :sad:

Nimi
08-23-2002, 04:50 PM
Shit, i want him to go! :p

Irish
08-23-2002, 06:12 PM
It was a pro-Israel visit. We are already pro-Israel. :D :hearts:

Well, the match is over and Lindsay won as you probably already know. She was sweet as usual giving credit to Myskina and mentioning that Nastya had a late match last night so she was probably worn out. :kiss:

Nimi
08-23-2002, 06:21 PM
Myskina's outfit was so... pink.

Nimi
08-23-2002, 06:44 PM
Noam Okun just won his final of the qualifying :D

Irish
08-24-2002, 08:28 PM
Yeah for Okun :bounce:

Yes, her top was quite pink. Shows off her tan. :D

karenrac
08-25-2002, 01:11 PM
Nimi, you poor person, you'll have to return to school next week... :sad:
When I went to school I was there for at least 8 hours every day (because I studied French, the highest level of Math and psycology & sociology). School for me started at 7:30 AM and ended usually at 2:30-4:00 PM. (and I live far away from my school).
Nevermind, according to the news, there will be a strike of the high school teachers.

Nimi
08-25-2002, 01:20 PM
Thats weird, why are we talking here? WTAworld is up again.

karenrac
08-25-2002, 08:05 PM
yes, that is wierd

Nimi
08-25-2002, 08:41 PM

Nimi, how was the Hag? eat much food?

Nimi
09-10-2002, 11:38 AM
Oh, i thought you said Hag & menat my sister :o

I dont eat much, i gained 2 kilos from muceles ;) I now officialy have big stomache musceles & a graet body ;)

Are you coming to the Israeli championships... In Raanana?!?

Julie what is the game youre playing? ;)

i-girl
09-10-2002, 11:41 AM
your sis name is Hagar?
my holiday was sad. my friend's brother got killed in a climbing accident in Italy, on Rosh hashana eve.
I don't know about Ra'anana. is anyone interesting going to be there? Har'el and Anna aren't gonna be there...

Nimi
09-10-2002, 11:45 AM
Nope, its Naama, but you do know that there is a word in english "Hag", right ;)
oooooo, that sounds bad :sad:
Amir Hadad will try to threepeat, & why do u think Anna wont be there? I wish she will... Noam's & Harel probably wont be there. But you know who will?? Shahar Peer! :D

i-girl
09-10-2002, 11:49 AM
why would Anna be there? it's not a big enough event... yes, Shahar will be there. she's quite interesting, very spirited. when is the championship?

Nimi
09-10-2002, 11:50 AM
Hanuka. Anna won it in 1999 i think, & i asked Scott & Mike to tell her to come there. I wish she will be there, & what if she will come & you will miss it? ;)

i-girl
09-10-2002, 11:57 AM
I'm sorry, Scott and Mike know Anna how???

Julie
09-10-2002, 11:58 AM
I dont play games - just stop changing the damned title :p :p :p

Nimi
09-10-2002, 12:04 PM
They met her at the US Open remember? You dont go to the Anna forum enough :(

Julie, search NT in ATPworld & you will find another Birminghamshire thread, now live this title alone :p

i-girl
09-10-2002, 12:07 PM
I don't go to Anna'a forum at all. I don't really go to player's forums. very rarely I go to Lindsay's. they met her? cool! did they say something intersting about the meeting?

Nimi
09-10-2002, 12:08 PM
Ya, they told her about the site.

i-girl
09-10-2002, 12:13 PM
gee, you're just full of information:rolleyes: . I guess I'll just go to Anna'a forum whem the board is up again.

Nimi
09-10-2002, 12:13 PM
They didnt said alot really.

i-girl
09-10-2002, 12:39 PM
I'll catch you later Nimi. gotta go work:) .

Nimi

Hi A-man :)

Irish
09-10-2002, 06:36 PM
:wavey: Hi Aaron and Everybody

I wish I could help out with the match reports but am quite preoccupied with events here in the U.S. and my job. ;);) Sorry I can't help right now. :sad:

Not too much info on Anna. :sad: We don't know if she got our messages to her or if she wants to make the site her official site or if she will visit it. :sad:

Esra, Nimi, Noga, Karen, Aaron, and Mike....be careful and I'll keep you guys in my prayers. :kiss: Have to get ready to go to work. :wavey:

Nimi
09-10-2002, 07:07 PM
Anna won 1-6 6-0 6-1.
I just watched a show about the september 11 & im all... well... speechless. & thats a first. :sad::sad:

Irish
09-11-2002, 04:47 AM
Thank you Nimi :kiss::hearts::sad:

Wow, what a weird score for Anna!!! :eek: Who did she play? It is midnight and I just got off of work so I haven't seen any tourny sites.

All of you take care :kiss:

Irish
09-11-2002, 05:55 AM
Nostradamus?? What's up Nimi?

i-girl
09-11-2002, 06:33 AM
yep, september 11th is here. everyone hold on tight.

nimi, now that we're here and wtaworld is gone, can you change the name of the thread back? "Israelis and their friends". unless you're really attached to the new name... it's your call.

King Aaron
09-11-2002, 06:42 AM
:wavey: Kerry!! that's okay. I can do it!! :) :)

:wavey: :wavey: and I'll keep you in my prayers too!! :kiss:

King Aaron
09-11-2002, 07:00 AM

I'll be back! :wavey:

Irish
09-11-2002, 07:11 AM
:wavey: Noga and Aaron

Yep, everyone be vigilant as best as possible. :hearts:

Thank you Aaron for your prayers. :kiss: I will keep all of you in my prayers. Don't go anywhere near an American embassy.

Aaron, I appreciate that....I would have gladly done it to help. I am eating dinner/supper at 2 AM.

i-girl
09-11-2002, 07:19 AM
you know, I didn't actually mean be "vigilant", I kind of meant "hold on" emotionally. but ofcouse vigilance is not a bad idea. are you working today? do you have a ceremony?

Irish
09-11-2002, 07:21 AM
Goodnight :wavey:

Take care, everybody :kiss::kiss::hearts:

Irish
09-11-2002, 07:31 AM
It's okay Noga. I understood you as you meant and that was very nice. :) I am working 3 PM -12 AM for four days (including 'today') and then 11 PM - 8 AM the next three days. Worked nights for the last two weeks. Am still deployed and they are working to extend me another 30 days. :) We are *quite* alert as possible. There are going to be prayer services or open houses for all religions, Jewish, Muslim, Christian, etc. They are going to read all the names of the people killed last year on Sept 11 and will be held in a ceremony in NY. I won't be able to go any ceremonies for the remembrance of those killed. I hope and pray all goes well for you guys. :kiss:

i-girl
09-11-2002, 07:35 AM
do you at least have a tv to watch the main ceremony in NY? they will show it here, tonight.

Irish
09-11-2002, 07:38 AM
There is a TV in the area I work in and it is usually on CNN or Fox News but if it is not on either of those, we will surely find the station it will be on. I hope we can watch it. That is cool you all are getting it. :)

Irish
09-11-2002, 07:41 AM
All we have seen today are all the scenes from last year so Americans do not forget to be *alert* and also interviews of family members of the people who were killed.

Also, I guess our alternatives ;) to do what is necessary ;) and I hear Israel is ready too (as always) :)

Irish
09-11-2002, 07:52 AM
How sweet and nice, a city in Australia is flying their flag at half staff and made a U.S. flag on the beach with some rocks or something. :)

i-girl
09-11-2002, 07:54 AM
whatever they're gonna bring on, we're ready for them.

I'll be watching the ceremony tonight too. It's nice, we'll all be in different places in the world, watching the same ceremony, feeling for everyone who got hurt. :)

i-girl
09-11-2002, 07:55 AM
that is sweet! (the city)

Irish
09-11-2002, 08:05 AM
There are no doubts Israel is and not that you guys "need" us, but we are behind you.

It is a little weird for some countries to see it (sensationalism for those) but for those who do care, it is nice of them to take the time. :kiss: I wish I could remember which city it was but it does mean a lot to us. Americans are easily pleased by nice gestures. :)

Those other countries don't realize that we know we are not the only country to have any tragedies happen to them. We definitely FEEL FOR EVERYBODY.

Irish
09-11-2002, 08:19 AM
Aaron, if you don't mind, would you provide the link for Anna's site. I did not realize WTAWorld would go away so now I don't have her site in my "favorites". Thank you ahead of time. :)

King Aaron
09-11-2002, 08:39 AM
ahh, I dunno if I'll be able to catch any ceremonies today. We'll have to wait and see.

Kerry, what do you mean site?! isn't it already on your mind?? :confused: I'm not sure if I got what you're trying to say correctly but it's www.smashnova.com

Irish
09-11-2002, 08:40 AM
Ugh! Aaron, I just noticed you have Anna's site in your signature. Hope it still "works". :sad:

King Aaron
09-11-2002, 08:40 AM
oh yeah.. I actually found an interview transcript from the Fed Cup against US!! I'll post it here and in the website.

King Aaron
09-11-2002, 08:42 AM
THE MODERATOR: First question.

Q. Does this come down to Lindsay's power, this match? Did she just overpower you?
ANNA SMASHNOVA: I think she played really well today. She played well on the important points. She served well. She hit well. She looked like she was really into it today.

Q. How about the heat?
ANNA SMASHNOVA: I was not really thinking about that. I think it was for both of us the same situation.

Q. Have you played in these conditions very often?
ANNA SMASHNOVA: In Australia it's pretty hot, in the States. Yeah, I mean, not that often, but we do get to play in these conditions so we're kind of used to it, we know what to expect.

Q. Did you feel a great amount of pressure?
ANNA SMASHNOVA: Pressure for... my team? No, I was just playing - like another match.

Q. Does Lindsay look any less of a player for having been off for nine months?
ANNA SMASHNOVA: Well, not today. She obviously played really good match today.

Q. What did you like about your game?
ANNA SMASHNOVA: Today or in general?

Q. Today.
ANNA SMASHNOVA: I think I was fast. I was not fast enough to beat Lindsay today, but I was fast. And my serve was good. I obviously was not good enough to beat her but...
It's not for me to judge. I mean, it has to be other people who judge my game.

Q. You broke her serve twice. Did you think at that point that there was an opportunity for you to work your way back in?
ANNA SMASHNOVA: I think in women's tennis now the serve is really not that important as maybe man's. I was just playing game by game. She broke me; I broke her.

Q. (Question referring to what Anna was thinking)?
ANNA SMASHNOVA: I was just trying to stay in the match and still believing until the very last point that anything could happen.

Q. You didn't go up to the chair umpire, but it seemed like you were questioning maybe some of the line calls.
ANNA SMASHNOVA: No, the linesmen and the umpire, I think they saw it better than I did.

LOL@Aaron. We must have posted at the same time. :D:D:D

I know I should probably have a tattoo of it but I don't plan to have any tattoos for anybody. :) Thanks Pal. :)

King Aaron
09-11-2002, 08:49 AM
lol.. okay then :)

not sleeping yet??

Irish
09-11-2002, 08:50 AM
It is still there. Now, I can safekeep Mike's last name too. :kiss:

Hey, thanks for the interview!!! :) She is so modest and sweet and those are some of the reasons she is one of my favs. She gives credit to the opponent, not like some other players. But, she is still just a little taller than me. :( Good thing we still have all the pics.

Still wish I had a scanner so I could post the ones I took of her at Amelia Island. Next year, I will ask to get my picture with her. :)

Irish
09-11-2002, 08:53 AM
You are so funny Aaron. :) Getting somewhat tired. This is my "evening" due to the hours I am working. ;) When I was "months" younger, it was 'nothing' to stay up all night until the morning. :D:D

King Aaron
09-11-2002, 08:53 AM
yay! :) you're so blessed you can watch the stars play! :)

Irish
09-11-2002, 08:56 AM
Aaron, you are a "secret agent" too. ;):):D




On a sadder note, just announced the official count of 2,801 people killed last year on this date at the WTC attacks alone.

Irish
09-11-2002, 08:59 AM
Yes, Aaron, it was really fun and nice and it was my first time to go ever.

They freaked the #@$% crap out of me....they just were reshowing the news from last year and I wasn't watching but listening.....

King Aaron
09-11-2002, 09:01 AM
:) you're going anywhere else next year?? tennis i mean.

i wanted to say 'lol' but thought about it. This isn't a laughing matter is it? You should be more alert in case you really thought it replays all over again!! ;)

karenrac
09-11-2002, 09:07 AM
Aaron, I'm e mailing you the preview now!

King Aaron

okay Karen!! :D

karenrac

I'M WRITING IT NOW... i FORGOT TO SAVE A COPY OF IT IN MY COMPUTER

Irish
09-11-2002, 09:14 AM
I understand Aaron. :kiss: :) I would love to go to Sarasota, Florida for that tournament. It is one of my fav Florida cities.

Noga, OMG, I really messed up. My apologies to the people of Gold Coast, Australia. It wasn't 'rocks', it was 3,000 people who made a U.S. flag on the beach standing there to form it. Paris had a pretty light show. This all does mean alot, you all. We appreciate it very much. :kiss::hearts:

Irish
09-11-2002, 09:16 AM
Karen :sad::sad: It's okay Sweety. I know how much work you put into your articles. They are super. :) We don't have your "good luck" thread here. :sad:

karenrac

Good morning Kerry!

King Aaron
09-11-2002, 09:21 AM
:) I'll wait patiently here!! :D you can send it through PM right??

Kerry, the Australians are so sweet! :) Sorry, I don't think over here in Malaysia we're doing much except for remembering this event

karenrac
09-11-2002, 09:26 AM
I've just sent you the preview by e mail, Aaron!

karenrac
09-11-2002, 09:28 AM
actually Aaron, I can't see the PM icon below your posts, so I can't send you a PM, so PLEASE tell me that you got my e mail, because I forgot to save the preview, again.

King Aaron
09-11-2002, 09:30 AM
okay! I'll check now Karen!!

Irish
09-11-2002, 09:30 AM
Good morning Karen :wavey:

It's okay Aaron. :) We appreciate this is in you all's thoughts. :kiss: Please stay away from the embassy there. :sad:

We understand that not everybody can do something and these are gracious enough because not all countries' tragedies or atrocities are held in remembrance for the victims.

karenrac
09-11-2002, 09:30 AM
lol nimi, I just noticed the Nosterdanus in the threads headline

karenrac

kerry, what are you going to do today? Are you going to any ceremonies?

Irish
09-11-2002, 09:33 AM
So you like Marat too, Aaron. He is an Aquarius like Karen and me. :)

King Aaron
09-11-2002, 09:36 AM
lol!! yeah I like Marat!! especially when he turns into a headcase!!! ;)
