Hi everyone! :wavey:

Welcome to our first picnic on Henman Hill! Please feel free to have as much fun as you can possibly handle and don't forget to talk a lot. http://www.stopstart.fsnet.co.uk/smilie/partysmiley.gif

Seriously, join this picnic anytime you feel the need to chat or would like to cheer Timmy during his US Open campaign or whatever. The picnic will be open at least until the end of the slam. :)

There will of course be plenty to eat and drink, but feel free to bring your own food or bevarage of preference (only if you're prepared to share ;) ). For starters, I brought some pizza, sushi (as Tim's favorite food), sandwiches, cheese and delicious muffins I baked myself. :drool: Drinks include plenty of bread, some classy wine for the picky (me :o ), Glenfiddich, orange juice, tea and even milk. Should you want to drink coke, you'll have to bring it yourselves I'm afraid. :p

Let the fun begin. :bounce:

And now I would like to invite our esteemed colleague, Harry Potter, to share with us her adventures in Europe. Did you stalk Timmy? :eek:

Welcome Leo :wavey:

As the first guest, you can have whatever you like. And I'll even run to the nearby store, if you have a special request. :D

Leo7

Layla
08-26-2002, 07:10 PM
Oh like I'm not good enough company for you? pfffttt :(

j/k :D Would love to dear, but I can't really fly her over the ocean, she needs her rest before the next match. And I'm afraid she's not at the nearby store. ;)

Leo7
08-26-2002, 07:12 PM
oh, that's okay. now we can spend some "alone" time together!:D :kiss:

Layla
08-26-2002, 07:18 PM
Oooh, so that's why you stopped by on Henman Hill, to be alone with me. http://www.stopstart.fsnet.co.uk/smilie/thinkerg.gif Should I be scared? :eek:

Cheers! http://www.stopstart.fsnet.co.uk/smilie/cheers.gif

Well, you broke my heart and my ankle http://www.stopstart.fsnet.co.uk/smilie/sad2.gif but you're hardly the only one. I'm used to it by now, I'll live. :p

But what you did was terrible. :sad: :sad: :sad: I hope you realise that. You didn't have to push me you know. I would've left if you asked me. ;)

Layla
08-26-2002, 09:55 PM

God this is quite some picnic you are having. So many guests on Timmy's board. I think I have missed a great party, it must be so cold out, now it's midnight. I knew I should have logged on before now. See you all tomorrow, with more Beer, chrisps and music.

Layla
08-27-2002, 12:03 AM
Hi Go Tim! :wavey:

Glad you could join us. Don't worry about it. Better late than never. Tomorrow will be even better. And yes, it might be cold, but the stars are keeping us warm, not to mention the moon. Besides, we have loads of fuzzy, comfortable blankets. ;)

Layla
08-27-2002, 12:04 AM
Good night IluvRogi! :wavey:

I'll go to bed soon myself. It's late.

Leo7

Layla
08-27-2002, 12:20 PM
Morning everyone! :wavey:

Since I'm the first one here, I'll officially start Day 2 of the picnic. I brought some more snacks, including peanuts, crisps and dips, plus there's a huge cauldron of hot minestrone soup in case it gets too cold. Drink of the day is fresh lemonade. :D

Later on, David Gray will be joining us for in impromptu concert. If you guys have any musical requests, don't be afraid to ask. I have connections. ;) I'll do my best to bring them over on Henman Hill.

Don't forget to have fun. http://www.stopstart.fsnet.co.uk/smilie/roll.gif

has this party died?

Layla
08-27-2002, 05:12 PM
No, but my server has. Again. :fiery: It happens every afternoon and I'm sick of it. Anyway, I'm watching the Safin/Kiefer match. It's quite entertaining.

Layla
08-27-2002, 05:25 PM
And now I'm all alone. :(

Layla
08-27-2002, 05:47 PM
No I'm not. David Gray has just arrived. "You don't mind giving a concert just for me, do you David?"

"Of course not. Looks like you could use some good old love songs to lift your spirits. I love your picnic, btw. The hill is golden in the afternoon sun and the smell of grass always brings fond memories. ;) Let me just set up my gear."

"Just a brief interview before you start. Thank you for coming. I'm sure you will set this party on fire. Tell me David, are you a fan of Tim Henman at all?"

"Yes, of course. He's a terrific bloke. I will always believe in him. I'm certain his day at Wimbledon will come. No one believed in me either. My first records had truly pathetic sales, but I hung in there until I had a breakthrough and then everything changed for me. If Tim can just keep his hopes up and doesn't listen to all his detractors, his dream will come true. And ours. :) "

"So you follow tennis regularly?"

"When I have time yes, definitely. But I've been getting so many invitations to play at parties lately... ;) "

"What do you think of atpworld?"

"It's a lovely place. There seems to be a lot of love and good vibes going around. Sure there are occasional squables but nothing too serious. I had the misfortune to venture into your sister site once, and I ran out screaming. I still have nightmares. :eek: "

"Hehe, I know what you mean. Have fun at the party and do come back to talk to us later. I can't wait to see what songs you prepared for me *cough* I mean us. Thanks again."

"My pleasure. This is possibly the best party I've ever been to and that says a lot. http://www.stopstart.btinternet.co.uk/sm/notworthy.gif "

Leo7
08-27-2002, 06:29 PM

who wants Leo7 kisses? :kiss: :kiss: :kiss:

ILR
08-27-2002, 06:31 PM
Hmm back r we?Do u even have 2 ask? ;)

Go Tim
08-27-2002, 06:40 PM
i hope we haven't ran out of beer just before I arrived. Is any other player forum having a party?
Good to see everyone has had a good day, have you not got jobs to go to?

Layla
08-27-2002, 06:45 PM
lol Go Tim! We've been having lemonade so there's still plenty of beer for later. What's your favorite beer?

The other forums don't have such a lovely hill to throw a party on. The big screen is showing the matches so we can watch and cheer while frollicking and drinking. Be sure to stop by tomorrow when Tim is playing. :D

And no, I'm currently unemployed but I do freelance translating, which means I work at home on my computer. Hence the amount of time I hang out at atpworld. ;)

Layla
08-27-2002, 06:48 PM
Hi Leo! :wavey:

I didn't even see you, I was so mesmerised by David's voice. *sigh*

ILR
08-27-2002, 06:50 PM
lol!No I dont work GoTim,Im 2 young! ;)

Go Tim
08-27-2002, 06:50 PM
Fav beer is definately Hooegarden, or if I'm slumming it Bud! Glad you are not in danger of being sacked from work for keeping the party going.

Go Tim
08-27-2002, 06:52 PM
IluvRogi - If you are to young to work that must be why we have been drinking lemonade all day.

Layla
08-27-2002, 06:55 PM
Ok, I'll make sure I get some Hooegarden. Never tried it before, but I trust it's good. My fave is Guinness. I know, I know, it's a bit of a cliche, but it's soooo yummy. It reminds me of coffee and cream lol. So you're not allowed to surf the net while you work? That's not fair. http://www.stopstart.fsnet.co.uk/smilie/boots.gif

Layla
08-27-2002, 06:56 PM
:wavey: Henmaniac!

How was your day?

Go Tim
08-27-2002, 07:00 PM
You've never tried Hooegarden? you don't know what you are missing. I think it may be an acquired taste as I didn't like it the first tme. This probably sounds disgusting but it has a citrus undertones and is cloudy. its probably most popular in Belgium and Holland

Unfortunately, they don't sell that in Slovenia. But it doesn't sound disgusting at all. I'll try it the next time I visit GB. :D

Leo7

i can't either dear!:kiss:

Marat has taken his 1st round match to a 5th set!:)

ILR
08-27-2002, 07:15 PM
Yeah I know!Hmm Im gonna say again,poor Mark :kiss: :kiss: (sorry Leo they're just get well soon kisses!) ;)

Go Tim
08-27-2002, 07:18 PM
Should we take a quick poll. Kiefer or Safin

ILR
08-27-2002, 07:19 PM
Hmm I want Keifer but Im gonna say Safin

Layla
08-27-2002, 07:20 PM
I say Kiefer but it could go either way. Marat is so funny. He threw himself at the ball and then just lay on the back with his hands behind his head, like he was enjoying David's concert on Henman Hill lol. But there's a problem with the satellite feed so I can't watch the match anymore. :(

ILR
08-27-2002, 07:22 PM
Oh I can get it but its on Sky Sports 2

Layla
08-27-2002, 07:24 PM
It's back now. :bounce:

ILR
08-27-2002, 07:26 PM
O good!Safin makes me laugh2,when u see him chuck his racket about!Mind u Im like that! ;)

Layla
08-27-2002, 07:35 PM
You are? LOL. Can you afford to break so many raquets too?

ILR
08-27-2002, 07:37 PM
yeah I am but I have 2 restrain myself because,no,I cant afford 2!
I get ready 2 throw it then think uh oh I cant break this racket I have no money! :D

Leo7
08-27-2002, 07:41 PM
i say Safin... but he just blew 6 break points and they are even at 2-2 in the 5th!

*cuddling with IluvRogi* :) :kiss:

Layla
08-27-2002, 07:41 PM
LOL I'ts good that you have some self-control. :D

ILR
08-27-2002, 07:42 PM

Yeah but not much Layla! ;)

Mrs. B

It seems like a hell of a match between Safin and Kiefer.

ILR

Will b sure of it Layla! :wavey:

Layla - I see you just can't drag yourself away to Juanqui's board.

Layla
08-27-2002, 08:12 PM
No I came back cause Leo and IluvRogi aren't cuddling in the moonlight anymore. I hate to be the third wheel.

Go Tim
08-27-2002, 08:16 PM
Ah yes the beer. it's in a 750CL bottle so plenty to go round. (It's a pity everyone has gone!) Now what to eat with it? Lets see - Cheese and Onion Pringle's, yeah that'll do for starters.

Layla
08-27-2002, 08:18 PM
I prefer the ones with sour cream. Mmmmmm, the beer is yummy. Tastes just like you described it. ;)

Both Marat and Kiwi need a trainer. Oh dear.

Layla
08-27-2002, 08:29 PM
I can't believe it! :eek: The match is going into a tiebreak and Nicolas is limping. This is truly an amazing match.

Go Tim
08-27-2002, 08:33 PM
I looks amazing just watching the scoreboard on the US Open website update!

Layla
08-27-2002, 08:36 PM
You're not watching it on TV? But it's on Eurosport. :confused:

Kiefer is really limping badly now, but he was still able to win 2 straight points against Safin's serve. :eek:

Layla
08-27-2002, 08:37 PM
Oh no, Kiefer is on the floor. He's in agony. The cramp must be really bad. :(

He's still playing though. What a guy! Match points for Safin!

Go Tim
08-27-2002, 08:41 PM
I haven't even got Eurosport - it's a long story.
i see safin has just won. Are they both still alive?

Layla
08-27-2002, 08:41 PM
Safin wins! What a drama! Probably one of the best matches of this USO. :D

Layla
08-27-2002, 08:42 PM
Safin is fine, but Kiefer limped off the court escorted by the trainer.

They embraced at the end.

Layla
08-27-2002, 08:52 PM
You don't have Eurosport?! That's shocking! :eek: How come? I love Eurosport, especially the tennis commentators. I'm very fond of them. :D

Go Tim
08-27-2002, 08:59 PM
I'll have to go now. There is this terrible program on TV. Very minor celebs that have been left in the Aussie outback to survive on there own! You have to watch it as everyone will be talking about it at work tommorow! See you later.

Go Tim
08-27-2002, 09:10 PM
I keep losing this page on ATPworld. Any way about Eurosport I've had it for the last couple of years but the company supplying it went bust. SKy want about 4 times as much money per month and 70GBP to install it. So I'm not getting it out of principle! It kills me though at this time of the year with all the tennis on. Good job I've got the internet to keep up to speed.

Layla
08-27-2002, 09:11 PM
See you later, Go Time! :wavey:

It was good to have you around. :)

08-27-2002, 09:12 PM

Now Hingis' match is on Eurosport, but Corretja is playing too. I hope to catch a glimpse of that. :hearts:

i didn't actually get very far. I decided it was safer to tape the celebrity program and fast forward the gruesome bits.

There are gruesome bits!? :eek:

Layla
08-27-2002, 09:34 PM
Ok help me please. Did Corretja just break or didn't he. At first the scoreboard said 4-3 and now it's 3-4. I'm confused. :confused:

ILR
08-27-2002, 09:37 PM
Its 4-4 Layla :D

Layla
08-27-2002, 09:40 PM
I know it's 4-4 now, but Alex had a breakpoint and then the scoreboard changed to 4-3 for him. Was there an overrule or something?

ILR
08-27-2002, 09:42 PM
Erm sorry I dont know I missed that bit,I was checking the coverage on the other channl!

Layla
08-27-2002, 09:43 PM
Martina won! :D

Aw good Venus is winning 6-0 5-0 at the mo!

What did you expect. Of course she's winning.

ILR
08-27-2002, 09:53 PM
Yeah but I didnt expect shed whitewash her!

Layla
08-27-2002, 09:55 PM
Wow! Labadze has served 10 aces to Alex's 2 and has 32 winners to Alex's 18 and he's still losing. Alex had 15 break points in all. :eek:

ILR
08-27-2002, 09:57 PM
Yeah its amazing statistics.Like Kournikovas apponent Widjaja only hit 1 winner in 2 sets and still won 6-3 6-0

Layla
08-27-2002, 10:00 PM
Yeah but she didn't have to hit any winners. Anna was spraying the balls all over the court with no control of where they were going. I feel sorry for her. That must have been so humiliating. She was booed off the court. Loudly.

ILR
08-27-2002, 10:02 PM
Yeah I know but its still amazing.Mmmm shes under a lot of pressure

Mrs. B
08-27-2002, 10:06 PM
hmmmm, me eyes are sore...but glad to see Martina winning her first round match. Sergio Garcia was prodding her too. Funny that the Brit commentators didn't recognize him, or are they not suppose to mention celebrities?

?

so how are the lovebirds at the hill doin' Y'er gonna catch cold, y'know...

My favorite character was Doyle (hands down) but he was killed after 10 episodes and I never got over that. So now it would have to be Angel himself, or the guy that runs the karaoke bar. ;) We are so far behind in Slovenia that I don't even know who Fred is (sorry). Angel is currently having problems with Darla.

ooops, sorry! Fred comes in the show on the 2nd season finale. her real name is Winifred but they call her Fred as a nickname. i won't say anymore, except that she is ADORABLE!:hearts: i also really liked Doyle, he's much better than his recplacement Wesley! i wish he could come back!

Layla
08-28-2002, 05:25 PM
My ankle is just fine, thanks. But I can't see how a kiss could hurt. ;)

Wesley is just a big joke. He's a bad spoof of Giles whom I like infinitely better. I heard that Cordelia and Angel will become an item. :eek: Is that true? It would be only natural.

Leo7
08-28-2002, 05:35 PM
well i don't want to spoil it for you but there is a little sexual tension between them!:) and i must warn you, when you are watching the 3rd season finale, bring a box of tissues. it's a REALLY sad episode!:sad:

btw, i LOVE Darla! she's my favorite vamp!:)

Layla
08-28-2002, 05:45 PM
Darla is great. Is she still around? My fave vampire is Spike (well, what can I say, I'm a girl) from Buffy. You're right, the show lost much of its appeal after Oz left, but Spike's realisation that he is in love with Buffy was the highlight of the later series. I loved his efforts to become a better person and his struggle against his vampire instincts. He's just adorable and Buffy was cruel to dismiss him like that. :fiery:

Layla
08-28-2002, 06:34 PM
Gather round people, we need to cheer for Timmy now! I brought loads of beer and crisps, so make yourselves comfortable.

Tim won the first set 6-1! :D His first serve percentage was 50 %, so that's not too bad. He even served 3 aces and only one double fault.

Keep it up Timmy! :bounce:

Go Tim
08-28-2002, 06:46 PM
Hi all, glad to see you have had a nice day. Timmy is going well at the moment. How is his shoulder holding up?
I've just got you all a case of beer, I'll hand it round in a moment.

Layla
08-28-2002, 06:52 PM
A full case of beer! :drool: You're a darling! :D

I don't know about his shoulder, I'm only watching the computer scoreboard. Eurosport is showing the Haas/Sanchez match. Another injured player. :rolleyes: And imo, a too many players retired either before the USO or in the first round. I don't like this trend.

But Tim seems to be doing just fine. :D

Go Tim
08-28-2002, 06:58 PM
Yeah I agree about the injuries. Tim has also had a few niggly injuries and illnesses this year. He is getting on a bit!

Layla
08-28-2002, 07:05 PM
Yeah, I wonder what he's been eating. He had too many stomach upsets or indigestions. Maybe he's been hanging out with Lleyton too much. ;)

Layla
08-28-2002, 07:06 PM
Tim just won the second set 6-1!!! :bounce:

He served 7 aces and 3 doubles so far. His first serve percentage is now up to 57%. That's not bad at all considering... He made 23 winners and 13 unforced errors.

Go Tim
08-28-2002, 07:35 PM
:bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: Yeah congrats to Timmy. Thats got to be one of his best wins (in scoreline terms) in a Grand Slam:bounce: :bounce: :bounce: Let the party begin!

08-28-2002, 07:35 PM
Forget the beer! Break open the champagne! :bounce:

lol eye candy!He was crap tonight!Hey Sunderland really did us a favour by beating Leeds.I hate them!

Anyway,no it didnt hurt but the guy looked really scar and I felt a bit scared!He had loads of tattoos and peircings and orange dreadlocks but he was really nice and sweet! :)

Another nerve-recking match, exactly like Safin/Kiefer but with more at stake, because I care about Haas much more.

Those 3 double faults at match points... :rolleyes: Thank goodness he recovered. PHEW.

I think Tommy deserves a kiss or three. :kiss: :kiss: :kiss:
