THOMAS ENQVIST'S BIRTHDAY PROJECT

As you all know, Thomas' birthday, will be March 13th.
As 7 fans will be in Strasbourg for the DC, we'd like to offer him a present.

I suggest to create a banner with "happy birthday Thomas" (in Swedish), and on this banner, we'll write the name of each fan. So, I hope a lot of people will participate !!! It's not difficult, just write your name and your country. Thomas is a great player who did a lot of things for the SWedish Tennis, so it will be great for him to know that he's still supported by his fans.

With this banner, there will be a b-card. If you want to write a message for him, just write it in reply to this message, I'll print the messages and stick them on the b-card. I really hope that there will be more than 7 persons who will participate. It doesn't cost anything, just a few minutes on the net.

You can write in Swedish, English and French.

Well, I'm waiting your suggestions and you are invited to participate !!

Thanks in advance to everyone....for him.

do you need last names too? it's no problem, if you do, just tell me and i'll add it later.

name: alison
country: USA
(could you write my name really big, like gigantic? :p )

b-day card message:
Happy birthday Tompa!
My name's Alison and you're my favorite player. I love your style of playing tennis and the way you carry yourself on the court. Whenever I get the chance, I watch your matches (whether it's on TV or internet scoreboards). I've been able to see you once in person (Indianapolis, 2004) you played a good match, and I was there, front row, cheering you on (with my Swedish flag and Enqvist shirt). I hope to see you there again this year. I didn't get an autograph the first time around, so maybe this year, I'll be lucky enough to get one! See you then!

Kom igen Tompa!! Happy birthday and good luck for 2005!

Alison

(can we add pictures too? i have to go to work now, but if we can, i'll add a funny one i took in indy when i get back)

Thanks Birte :) Yes, you can write in Swedish, no problem.

I forgot to say that the deadline to post the birthday message is for February 26th, 2005 cause I'll have a new internet provider at home and I won't have internet from the end of february until mid-march. So, please note the deadline : FEBRUARY 26TH 2005

So, just a word to tell you that it's now no more possible to send b-day messages for Thomas. Finally, we didn't make a banner, but a photo on photoshop, with a b-message and the names/countries of the fans who accepted to participate.

And, for the birthday messages, I bought two cards and now, I have to stick all the messages. So, we'll deliver him everything in Strasbourg.

We are about 20 persons (from mens tennis forum & 100 % Tompa website), so I'd like to thank everyone who have participated. I'm sure he'll appreciate to still have some support.

I'll let you know how he reacted.

I totally agree with Alison ;)
It´s so great, Val, that you do this for us and give us the opportunity to write a birthday message for Tompa :hug:
I can´t wait to get to know about his reaction ;)

And thanks again that you still took my message in, even if I was quite late :(

Hi,

Just a short word to say that I'm back from Strasbourg. As you may know, Thomas wasn't there. But, we gave the messages to Mats Wilander. He told us that he'll give them to him. So, we hope he'll do it...

Thanks again for the ones who have participated :)

Cool :yeah:
Mats is reliable. He passed on messages to Magnus Norman for my friend (and I + others) during ast years R1 DC against Australia. Hope you had fun, despite the result Val. I know I did, seeing the Austrians play! :D

you're so lucky living relatively close to Monte Carlo, the heaven of most of my fave ATP players and being able to go there on weekends! How often do you go? And where do you see Tompa practice? Is it at the tennis club where most of the players have their training?

Yes, living in Paris, it's relatively close to travel in Europe. Even if for Monaco, I'm going to take a night train on friday evening and come back to Paris on monday morning with a morning flight and go directly to work. I only go for the week-end, so I leave friday evening, and I'll be back on monday morning, so 2 full days in Monte-Carlo.

the practices are at the Monte-Carlo Country Club, the same place where the players play. So, it's very easy to see them. I like the place a lot.

I am not Val, but I hope I can answer as well ;)
The tournament in Monte Carlo is in the middle of april and as I have understand Val she goes to the qualifying, or :confused:
I was at the tournament last year and for me this was so fantastic, it´s just a great tourney! See if I can find some pics, then I will post them...
