Hmm, he really looked like a French musketeer in the good old days...Hated his goatee so much! Made him look like a phoney Frenchman in some old movie! :eek:
As for the book: if you can't find it or can't afford to buy it, maybe Esther will do you the same favour as she did me and a few other people. She simply sent us the translation she's made herself, of the highlights from the book. It was great reading, even if you don't get it all and you miss out on the pictures. Anyway, you can always ask her. She's a sport and a very generous person. :p

Eeeek, I hate to be annoying... but could I please have a copy of the translation too Esther? My understanding of French extends to the numbers 1 to 10 and that is all!

Thanks

Hi pj girl !!I love all swedes guys too ,especially Thomas Enqvist

Stefan Edberg was the reason I started following tennis. The Swedes have always been very hard to resist for me because the Swedish fans all travel down to Melbourne each and every year and their cheering is infectious.

It's nice to see young up and coming new players like Joachim Johansson and Robin Soderling doing rather well :).... sorry, I know this is a Sebastien board so I'll shut up now :rolleyes:

Not, it's okay, I also remember Stefan Edberg and he was a very good player and always a gentleman! I used to support him every year at Wimbledon. But the Swede I really liked was Mats Wilander. He was just the best on clay!
