Now I finally know the name of that German guy that I spoke to at Indian Wells last year during Jan-Mike's practice. :D

Do you mean you met the guy that has the picture site?
Of course I can't read anything at the site, but there are some really nice pictures of many players :)

Yes, he was taking pics of JMG near me and I went to chat with him. He asked me if I was the owner of Janmiketennis.com and complimented me on the site (it was still up back then). He had a photo of JMG that he wanted signed, so I called JMG over when he finished practicing. He seemed like a nice guy in that brief encounter.

You know, when you get to the site, you can scroll all the way to the bottom of the page, click on the American flag and it will translate to English. You're right, there are MANY excellent photos on that site.

Well, I've been lucky (I had a photo credential for Indian Wells in 2004). I've been to a number of tournaments since 2002 and I seem to meet someone new at each one (players, agents, tournament directors, chair umpires, photographers, racquet stringers, whatever). One of the benefits of being a driver, when you are trapped in a car with someone, its usually more interesting to have a conversation then to sit there in silence. :D

Yes I have noticed that it seems to be hard for anyone to be silent in a car! But it is great all the people you met no wonder you know so much about tennis and tennis players :)

Hi Fiona/Fee,

I am the photographer of the Togon page. Yes, Fiona we talked in Indian Wells about your homepage and I said that there should be more pictures on it. I regret that you closed the page. I liked it very much. I have been a member of JMG's fan club in the past and I am happy that I can combine my hobby tennis with my profession which is first of all sports writing and then in addition taking pics. In the 90es I handled an Edberg Fan Club for a couple of years. And I have written and published the first and only book on Stefan Edberg.

Unfortunately tennis is not that popular in Germany nowadays as in the times of Becker, Graf or even Stich. There are not so much jobs for writing articles on tennis.

So I decided to create the homepage. I don't know if you understand that I am selling those pics on a CD. The CD with all those JMG-pics is available for just 20 Dollars. So if anybody is interested in it ...

Fiona, you said in IW that you have lots of pics. Maybe we can exchange pics if you like.

Okay that's all for now.

See you.

Hi Kurthi! :wavey:

I'm just Fee here. :D I still remember that conversation with you, your comment made me very proud. I did have a lot of photos of JMG to put up on my site, but I did not own most of them so I can't exchange them. I may be interested in getting some photos from you, I'll let you know after the Christmas holiday. Thanks for posting here.
