Post What is your tennis new years resolution?

I promise that I will try to like Anna K.<br />I will not post if I know that I will start a fight.<br />I will be more understanding and less angry when my faves lose (not that I will need this one much).<br />I will try to attend as much tourneys as possible in the US and maybe the French. <br />I will hate Jen Capp less.<br />I will like Hingis a little more (poor child). <br />I will work on my own game a little more. <br />I will learn to mix up my serve more.<br />I will not fight with Disposablezero (it is still 2001) or fingnon. <br />I will not encourage Dawn Marie to be outrageous.<br />I will continue to think that Moon is an Angel.<br />I will be supportive when GOCORIMORI shows up during the season as yet another person.<br />I will send out the search party to find Gumbycat and Althea.<br />You can hold me to these.

Official Gangsta rappa of the Royal Court

Will you be there?

I will pray that you find the strength to achieve your goals, because some of them will be pretty hard to hold true too <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> LOL

My one personal mission this year is to NEVER complain about a draw that ANY player receives.

Whether it be seemingly 'weak' or 'loaded', either way, it doesn't matter.

That's it! <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

I'll quit hating on ....oh wait a second - i was never hating on anyone in the first place. I will CONTINUE to not hate on any players, or pick apart comments that they make to the press.

hmmm....perhaps I'll be less of a smart ass.

And perhaps if I percieve someone else to be acting like a self righteous fool, similar to how 5 year olds act - then I will just keep it to myself, as opposed to attempting to tell them how to behave - even if I am right.

I also think I'll try to find out more about lower ranked players and follow some challenger results, as well as some juniors. Don't know if I have time to go into too much detail, but I can certaintly learn a LOT more than I know now <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

No promises, but I can certaintly try to do these things <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

aww freethinker, you're making me blush.

anyway, my resolutions are:<br />-tape more matches(I regretted not taping a few this year)<br />-no more going to sleep in the middle of matches(I can sleep when I'm dead). <br />-work on my serve (because it sucks)<br />-work on serve & volleying more.<br />-read more about tennis history.<br />-try my best to kick my brother's butt next time we play.

No problem <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> <br />Those sites were passed on to me awhile back and I was very thankful, so I had to reccomend them when you said that <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> <br />Once you get into those sites, you'll get to impress everyone with all of these players you know.. and you'll know who some of the up and comers are when they make their big debuts <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

I will excuse any comment Freethinker makes, as he is only upset because of his major mental deformities.
