** Amelie stop tennis before Rolland **

Today, Amelie call me in order to make this annoncement :

"I will stop tennis before Rolland Garros in order to become pro golf player..."
You could find the article in our Official Site Proam.

Have a good 1er April, with the French Tradition.

You're all a bunch of April fish (zut, how I love those French idioms).

"Poisson d'Avril" is the French term for April Fool's Day. In grade four my French teacher told me it was because French children thought it a very clever joke to try to pin a little paper fish on each others' shirts on this day. I do not know if this is true or if she just wanted me to stop asking difficult questions.

I only wish Amélie's debacle last night (congrats to Kim for playing terrific, but you're lucky you get a nice rest because your opponent's brain got lost on the way to the stadium) was due to this holiday. And after that, your thread title scared me enough to click on it.

Well, I walk into the room
Passing out hundred dollar bills
And it kills and it thrills like the horns on my Silverado grill
And I buy the bar a double round of crown
And everybody's getting down
And this town ain't never gonna be the same.
Cause I saddle up my horse and I ride into the city
I make a lot of noise
Cause the girls, they are so pretty...

All
ez Amélie!

Venus said that it doesn't make any sense in playing tennis if she is going to lose to someone who just got double bagelled....she is going to retire after wimbledon if things doesn't change.

When I think of life, sometimes my response is "Oh Damn!". But I still think of life anyway, "Oh Damn!!!"
