I remember that..

Go Jennifer!!
Good Luck in 2003!!

"I just made the decision that it's now or never..Just, you gotta have this positive self-image of yourself and otherwise, you know, your not gonna survive this life, I mean, you're gonna go through living depressed and sad and not being able to look at yourself and always degrating yourself..You know the most important thing is, is that to love yourself, you know, walk around with your head high and not take anything from anybody!..There's no other way than to just try to be happy, to try to smile, 'cause you know it's just..your wasting time if you're not!"

Worse than a bird as been killed. A net judge was struck hard by a ball hit by Stefan Edberg years ago. He fell off his chair and hit his head hard on the concrete.

I think Edberg was haunted by that for a long time.

But that was hardly the ball to be blamed in that case, Jakeev.
It was a match he played when he was Junior.

PS. Who's that troll who knees down and prays in front of the dying bird?
The stupidest gesture i've ever seen on a tennis court in 40 years, that is.

I remember that well!
It was this year, the all-french doubles semi final in the Aus Open

It can be killing for human beings too, I think.

A hockeyplayer was almost killed by a ball last year, the same is possible to happen with tennisballs too, I think.

What would you say if we could make
something amazing

I think it was Michael Llodra who prayed for the dead bird.

" The more you sweat in training, the less you bleed in battle "
" When you're not training, someone else is training... TO KICK YOUR ASS! "
" It's not the size of the dog in a fight, but the size of the fight in a dog. "

You Dirty Bastards Rule 2003:
Marat Safin - Lleyton Hewitt - Andy Roddick - Nicolas Kiefer - Olivier Rochus - Tommy Robredo - Mikhail Youzhny

I thought it was Julien Boutter who kneeled to the ground. I guess he was trying to be funny
