Is it fair to say that Orlando was the ultimate Mickey Mouse event in its day?

Sure, it was won by luminaries such as Agassi (twice), Chang, Courier, Norman, BG ( :worship: ) and Gonzalez in its final year, but to me it presents a compelling case as the ultimate MM tourney for a very important reason.

I would add Paris and LA to the candidates. But the best bet for the ultimate MM tournament is Shanghai.

Yes and he defeated Massu in all-Chilean final and then they thought the best what can be done about this MM tournament is to close it.

Sjengster
04-27-2006, 09:26 PM
In all seriousness, when you consider that the top seed that year was Australia's finest Andrew Ilie, perhaps it was something of a MM event at the time.... still, it's not like the US needs fewer claycourt tournaments, looking at American success nowadays at this time of year.

You can't be an Ilie hater actually, are you? I thought the whole world enjoyed the times when he was tearing his shirts to show what a Tarzan he was.
You are also underappreciating US successes on claycourts, regarding Mardy Fish last days and Andy Roddick in previous years. James Blake also appears as a claycourt-challenger beast :secret: Anyway when Donald Young grows enough, he will beat'em all.

Now hold on a minute! That offer was only to try to get Fonsie to come visit me. JMG was never involved (at least not that he knew). I've since learned that the only way I can get Fonsie to visit me is to tell him my computer is broken or something...

Lee, we need to chat. Other message boards? hmmm....

Sjengster, that sounds like my type of harem. How's the wine selection? Is there a decent Port on the list?

I was drunk while signing the papers and too drunk to be used at night afterwards. Now we're after the divorce anyway. In Djibouti and Somalia you can have up to four wives but I have grown up in a country where only one is accepted by law.

Yes, joeb_uk talks to me on MSN and his last problem was whether to take a bag to London or not. Hopefully he was successful in sorting this out.

Regarding the fact I have 3,5 years to complete graduation at the law faculty, I will take my two lawyers from the common law system, who are Jez and Debra to represent me in the court (or do we say "at the court...." in Casablanca for instance? it was also a movie with a sad ending by the way)

I would like to keep:
* previously mentioned bed
* previously mentioned chair
* the computer under Mozilla
* the mirror in which I was taking the self-photos to have an enjoyable atavar for you
* the photo camera - to take pictures of more of my bandwagoners than just this (included in the attachment)
* the kitchen equipement in which I was preparing the treat for the guests for your official birthday party
* the desk by which I was writing a song for you (handwriting can't be uploaded due to MTF aftercrash problems but I am still feeling familiar with the desk)

As for the rest, I will contact the Embassy.
