damn, seasons over!

i hate this part of the year, the lag from november to january when there isn't any tennis going on. it seems like the break is so long but isn't one of the shortest off seasons for pro sports? i have a life, but i still miss it and following the results. what about everyone else?

yea the breaks are short but it doesn't mean i want it to end. the soccer season here ends in May to and starts at the end of August and i manage it.

but tennis is different. i think i'll have to order old matches too

Exclamation

The break is acutally seven or eight weeks, which isn't long. In the US, we have basketball, football and hockey (which I don't like) to fill the void left by tennis. Plus, Thanksgiving is two weeks from Thrusday and after that, the Christmas season starts (which is shorter this year), then Christmas comes and goes and then there is the New Year and Hopman Cup starts January 3 (Janaury 2 in the US).

The break won't matter that much here in the US since we hardly get coverage anyways.

the truth @ jldementieva

like lizchris said, football is going on STRONG and I like hockey (go THRASHERS! #37 forever) so I won't miss anything until the AO. I have tapes stacked up and my faves are always doing something nontennis related so, it's not so bad for me.

Williams x2 Clijsters Golovin Ivanovic Li Jackson
Federer Blake Fish Roddick Grosjean Bryans x2

"I believe in being polite, you know. In life, the elevator goes both ways, up and down."
-- Roger Federer

like my av? want one like it?

I actually need the break to concentrate on my midterms.But I'll still see the Materscup,Fedcup,Daviscup(I allways love to see that one) and you also have the exhibition tournaments(I'm looking forward to the match Noah-Henin-Hardenne)

Allez.
