I got Alexandra Stevenson's autograph during 2000 Adidas International and it was my first attended tournament and first witness winner the match.

She signed for me and it say, "AlexSydney"


Inspiration is for amateurs

It's hard enough just getting people to pronounce it right. Sometimes I wish I'd come up with something easier.

It's pr. zhwee-SONT (except the "t" is not really sounded...it goes into a nasal sound). Got it?

december is my favorite month [birthday]... but its actually a lil more complicated. i just dont feel like going into the details cos there are spies out there.


....This is fucked up, fucked up....

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.

Years ago (half a decade or more? ), my cousin brought a friend of hers named Erin to the house. I liked the sound of name so much so I started using it.

For some reason, my mind registered the spelling of her(Erin's) name as Aerien, TOTALLY off the pronounciation of Erin.

Well when I was informed of my mistake two years later, I thought that I came up with an original name. Then I started looking around the internet and found out that 'Aerien' is French I think for air. Not sure. I'd LIKE to believe my imagination came up with it.

People who know French, tell me if I came up with an original name or not.

(Actually, my old name would be Aerien Wendigo but people kept calling me just Aerien so I dropped the 'Wendigo' part. Those who'd like to know, feel free to ask where the Wendigo part came in.)

anyway, copyright,copyright,copyright!

33 singles titles
33 doubles titles
7 mixed doubles titles
7 Fed Cup titles

My mommy named me Alyanna. I moved to the US, and nobody could pronounce it right, so it's Leena. The end.

Neat question.

I like "Spirit" because of its varied meanings. It's the root word of the word spiritual, which is important to me because I don't like chaotic craziness. (Some of you may ask, "What are you doing here, then?" ) Yet "spirit" also means the vital, animating force inside me, and it can also mean fierce determination and dedication against all odds.

It's not the most poetic or beautiful word in the English language, but it's the neatest word I've ever found. For a two-syllable, six-letter word, it packs a lot of punch in a very subtle way.

I only joined WTAWorld last year, so I was very pleased to find the name "Spirit" available. Usually, someone else has taken it.

If anyone else is also a figure skating fan, I post as "Spirit889" on various figure skating EZBoard forums, such as Golden Skate.

Aérien can mean aerial or airy in french yes. At first, I thought your nick was Aerien because you knew what it meant in french.

Nimrod is the name & Nimi is a shorter version of it.
