Hey everyone! I'm bored since there's no new Andy news going on. Especially since he pulled out of Davis Cup and the Siebel Open!
So I was wondering..how many people here have met Andy?
Well to start it off, I have! I won an essay contest in September and won a trip to Paris with 120 other high school kids in my area to watch the Davis Cup Semifinals against France. While there, we got to meet Jim Courier, Cliff Drysdale, and the President of the USTA at a breakfast meeting about the Masters Cup coming to Houston. The matches were awesome and the atmosphere was so great, even though we lost. The last night we were there, we had the entire Hard Rock Cafe rented out for our group only and Andy, James Blake, and Mardy Fish came and "partied" with us lol. It was amazing and so were they...all so down-to-earth and total sweethearts.
Alrighty well that's my story haha. If you want to see my pictures (they're awesome!) here's the link:

If Andy were ever to dance with me, I think his agents would kill to make sure those pictures never saw the light of day :D

aw you guys are so cute lol. well here are some more details i can think of right now..uhh its gonna be kinda long lol
we got to the hard rock cafe that night and we didn't know they were going to be there. we were all partying and dancing and stuff and basically having an awesome time in paris lol. some people weren't dancing, you know the unsocial people, but me and my girlfriends on the trip were out there shakin our stuff (LOL) and we were just in a big circle on the stage and all of a sudden some tall guy squeezed by me and he was like "HEY GIRLS!" and started dancing with us. i was like "HOLY CRAP its andy!!" and i felt like a teenybopper or whatever but i got over that and he was just like any other guy there--fun, down-to-earth, funny, hot, etc lol.
well then after dancing for awhile, james and mardy come in and start dancing with us too. mardy=gorgeous. lol i never thought he was really that hot until i met him face to face and i was like..damn. haha. well anyway then james proceeded to chug a beer and we all chanted for him "chug! chug! chug!" lol. then mardy and james went and sat down and ate but andy stayed with us on the stage to dance. he was so funny and we went to this corner of the stage where there was some major break dancing going on with the big circle and you say like "go katie, go katie, go katie" or whatever and we did that for a while and it was funny stuff.
so anyway i sat with this guy eddie on the plane from nj to paris (7 hours ugh) and we had fun and we were buddies and i found out afterwards that like he and andy are really close friends. so i saw him and andy talking at the party and i took the opportunity and i went up to them, and andy was just smiling at me like "hey what does this girl want" and i smiled at him and turned to eddie and i said "eddie...come DANCE with me!!" so he did and andy came with us and i was like whoa i'm like talking to andy lol. eddie's in one of those pictures..he is hilarious.
oh and once me and my friend erin were walking down to the bathrooms and mardy was coming up and we smiled at him and he goes "hey ladies" and we were like "hey mardy!" and i swear he SO watched us walk away lol! it was the coolest..and erin noticed it too so we ran and told everyone haha.
lets just say it was the best experience of my life lol! i absolutely fell in love all over again with these guys and even after losing the davis cup tie they still found it in their hearts to come party with us hot girls LOL. oh yeah and once i almost got andys cell phone number because his friends thought me and my friends were hot and they wanted us to talk to them. we walked by them once and i heard them say "man, if only we were the number one tennis players in america" and another guy was like "FOR REAL!!" some of them were hot too so that was a definite plus haha.
thats about all i can remember lol...has anyone else met him? surely im not the only one here!! come on dont be shy lol

unfortunately i haven't met him before, don't think he'll ever come here anyway, so i'll contend with watching him on TV, and i gotta say once again, you lucky gal!!!!
