I'm Paige and welcome to the blog de me.
I'm new to this forum, but not new to tennis. Although I AM new to seeing matches live -- and tomorrow (or today now) I get to see one of my favorites, Jiri Novak at the Delray Beach Millennium event.
I have a digital camera, but I won't be sitting incredibly close, so we'll see how well I do.
When it comes to tennis: I usually focus on my fave players: Safin, Agassi, Davenport, Federer, Novak and Graf.
Then there's a crew that I root for, we'll say these are the ones whose losses I don't take quite as hard: Blake, Fish (except for the Olympics), the Williams sisters, Henin-Hardenne, Dent.
As a kid, McEnroe and Evert were my faves.
I am not really a fan of these guys (sorry, not trying to offend, just trying to be truthful) Sampras, Roddick, Massu, Becker, Lendl.
And that's me in a tennis nutshell. Besides tennis, my big loves are hockey (New Jersey Devils!!!, Team USA, North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Albany River Rats) and baseball (Yankees -- Tino, Jeter, Mo, Bernie, Jorgie! and further back Maris, O'Neill, Nettles, Munson, Guidry, Gossage, Ford, Mantle).
I'm enjoying getting to know this board and I hope I develop some great friendships here.
