Graydon Oliver fan gathering!
Well, it is way past time for Graydon to have his own thread here at MTF (one that begins in a happy, positive place, not like the other one).

His official website can be found at He's off this week, but he will be playing at the Cincy Masters according to the Doubles early entry list. I'll see if I can track down a few of the pictures I've taken of him in the last few years to add to this thread. :D

Re: Graydon Oliver fan gathering!
is that from that old fan site? Some of that information seems a bit out of date.

Re: Graydon Oliver fan gathering!
haha, no. it's actually from his Illinois NCAA tennis page. so it is really out of date!

Nice work Fee.
Indeed, Cookie does deserve his own thread. I just went over all the photos I took this year, and I only took a couple of him as I was leaving the Adelaide tournament! (And he didn't look so nice in them :lol: ) WOE IS ME! The only other time I saw him play, I wasn't too interested because Tripp was on another court :rolleyes: Shame on me. Oh well, next year ;) Next year I will have some nice pictures to add.

Go Cookie!

**"Cookie" because of a conversation *~kat and I had with him, over what we would eat for dinner. [Adelaide 2005. Across the road from Subway, when he confessed he was quite a fan of their cookies, and I think he was contemplating getting one. Poor guy. The store closed before he had a chance.]

Re: Graydon Oliver fan gathering!
Funny that you call him 'cookie'. I've given most of 'my boys' food-based pet names and somehow Graydon became 'baby biscuit', probably because JMG is the big biscuit, and they were my 1-2 guys for a while. I don't think I have a 'cookie' but Travis is 'cupcake'.

Re: Graydon Oliver fan gathering!
Graydon and Travis got into the Montreal Masters as alternates when Llodra/Santoro had to withdraw. They won their first match together {Oliver/Parrott d Etlis/Rodriguez 46 76(2) 76(4)} and will play Bjorkman/Mirnyi on Friday.

Go Baby Biscuit and Cupcake!

Re: Graydon Oliver fan gathering!

Not really... I know who I will be ditching. Age before beauty ;) :ras: Back to Graydon-supporting next tournament :lol:

Today at the Cincy Masters, Graydon and Hrbaty will play Justin G and Rick Leach. :D

Re: Graydon Oliver fan gathering!
Graydon is ranked 29th in doubles this week. I think that is the highest he has ever been. Yay for Graydon!
