players from your area

is any player on women or men tour from your area?
i mean, maybe 30 miles away or closer?

Philipp Petschner who kicking ass this week in Metz on ATP-Tour is from Bayreuth, just 15 miles away from my home-village
he is ranked around #330
but will enter the top250 next week
and today he was on the front-page from our local newspaper

not my WTA-Tour anymore

No one lives near me, not even 'good' juniors

All the better players live in or are at least from the Toronto region for the most part. And then most of them end up moving down to Florida for most of the year anyway

"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But he loves you."

George Carlin

nope

or maybe xavier malisse 30km

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.
