...this could be a good OFF-topic for the OFF-season

Sure you know
Yeah, I like Aix also better than Marseille, so it would be nicer to go there

It happened in 2005, this man was also Fred's sponsor for a year or so. But luckily they ended the contract at the end of the year and the man got arrested a few months after. I was really shocked and would like to know what Fred thinks about all of this. But a lot of Dutch tennisplayers said at the time that they don't want to comment on the affair, so I never dared to ask There were like 1200 people and the tournament director owed them all together about 125 million euros It was a sort of 'pyramid game' he built. I just translated it literally from Dutch, so I don't know if anyone knows what it means. Just tell me and I'll try to find a translation, don't have time to look it all up now

And I work at an entertainment store, so it's maybe not smart to say.
But I also know the 'classics' when I hear them and even though I recognize the songs, it doesn't imply that I know who sings them

Yeah, the reasons are various. For the Hilversum challenger it was that the tournament director was an imposter and is in jail for 5 years now
Quite the sensation in the Dutch tennisworld. Well, at least it's exciting here sometimes when it comes to tennis

Thanks for those screen caps. The image of those yellow, um...underwear will be burned in my mind forever!

I feel so lucky, ESPN is showing the singles and TTC is showing the doubles!

Arnaud and the other guys were asked to give an advice to Ivo. Well, not an easy question indeed...
In that video I especially appreciate DiP's T-shirt lol

Good luck to you for realizing your Marseille plans

And a little note: after making a SF in Bercy the crazy couple moved up to the 8th place so this way they're getting even the direct classification for the Masters Cup.

I wasn't sure what you meant about the yellow canary shorty until I saw the video!

Fabrice's is funny. Also, Arnaud appears briefly in the Karlovic one.


are we sure now?

I just went looking for the Aix challenger, it wasn't on the calender for a few years. Does anyone know what happened to it?
