Yeah, but not in any old random book or piece of paper :)
I have a little book where I write a little bit about a player, and put a photo of them / with them next to it, and get them to sign underneath. So far I have:
Jan Frode Andersen - Simon Aspelin
Tomas Behrend - Massimo Bertolini - Jonas Björkman - Lars Burgsmuller
Agustin Calleri - Frantisek Cermak
Thomas Enqvist
Wayne Ferreira *sweetheart* - Leos Friedl
Jerome Golmard
Thomas Johansson
Igor Kunitsyn
Niclas Larsson - Michael Llodra
Todd Martin - Jurgen Melzer - Max Mirnyi - Carlos Moya
Jarkko Nieminen - Timo Nieminen
Alexander Popp
Tommy Robredo - Oli Rochus
Fabrice Santoro - Rainer Schuettler - Robin Soderling
Brian Vahaly - Martin Verkerk - Filippo Volandri
Mats Wilander - Todd Woodbridge

There are a few I remembered to get photos with, but forgot to get them to sign my book :smash: :) I'll update in January ;)

No.

In general, I just hate talking to players. When you get to know them, you know they're regular loser peons like the rest of us. Then, it feels stupid asking for autographs and such.

Leander Paes called me very organized for having my picture of him ready to sign when he stopped practising :lol:

:lol: You should see my itinerary for January :eek:

Leena is right though. When you get to talking to people, you see that they're just normal people (although occasionally with a heap of money, jetsetting around the world).

That itinerary is indeed very organized :lol: I would never ever do that, though it probably is very effective :yeah:

Did you get Ferd Crone's autograph? He was really helpful when I was doing my 'profielwerkstuk' last year about the liberalisation and privatisation of the Dutch energy sector. He is from the PvdA :)
