LOL.

I knew the NZ one. Have to say that Magdalena Maleeva's one is a classic. I mean if there's one thing I must learn to do, it is to sew. O-kay.

And I'm sorry, but I can't imagine Venus sumo wrestling. <img src="eek.gif" border="0"> <img src="eek.gif" border="0">

Talking

Why wouldn't Amelie be able to get into a go-cart? Adults get into them all the time. We have a company picnic every summer and my whole company enjoys racing in them (men a lot taller and larger than Amelie).

Amélie Mauresmo, 2009 GDF Suez, 2007 Proximus Diamond Games, 2006 World No. 1 ,Wimbledon Champion, Proximus Diamond Games, Gaz, Australian Open, 2005 YEC, Advanta Chamionships, Italian Open, Proximus Diamond Games, 2004 World No. 1, Advanta Championships, Generali Linz, Rogers Cup, Italian Open, German Open, 2003 J&S Cup, Advanta Championships, 2002 Rogers AT&T Cup, Dubai Open, 2001 Gaz, Nice, Amelia Island, and Eurocard Ladies German Open, 2000 Adidas International, and 1999 Bratislava Champion

There's a fine line between love and hate; that line is called family!

No one does things exactly the way I want them to. No one ever has. It’s a problem they have!

AZARENKA!

What`s bizar in making crosswords. in tvshows when people have to tell what their hobbies are they always come with that <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

Ai's had that company for years. They sell sporting goods.

Former tour player Julie Richardson had a company called Julie R. Panties, which sold tennis panties. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">
