Cute story. I have never been much of an autograph hound, I usually just say hi to the players and move on.

Great story, thanks, Brian. I always like it when I see that some people are as crazy about tennis as myself.
I have only one autograph but it's not a bad one... Spoken of autographs you get when the player is not that wellknown yet... The autograph I have is the one of the wondeful... Paradorn Schripachan. Yeah.

2000-2007: My "Kim years". My best years as a tennis fan. A few bitter losses but a lot of great matches and great wins. Thank you, Kim Clijsters!

I always get autographs from players coz i can never think of anything to say to them, so its just an excuse for me to approach them.

I'm usually the same way. I have two of the, but they were both exceptions to the rule. I got Justine Henin to sign my hat because my friend wanted me to go with her so that she could get hers done, so I figured what the hell. The first time that I bothered was after Ferrero's match, the second time that I saw him... it was my only excuse to go up to him, and he's my favourite player so
