Oh.. Your'e from New Ziland? So going to AO must cost more money for you.. Have you ever went to Auckland (The tourniment) too?

Yea being from NZ makes things expensive - costing in excess of $2000 each year to go, but its well and truly worth it. This year came to $3,500 because of having to fly back for the final again!

I've been to Auckland city, but not the tennis tournament To be honest I don't think very highly of Auckland at all. I think the best of our country is all in the South Island. Fantastic scenery and the climate is a bit more stable.

It was really fun being a part (even if small one) of the tennis world, I got to meet some nice people and watch some israeli faves play. I never looked to be a proffessional player so I didn't want to be in their spot or something like that. I don't think I'll ever work as a line judge again but it was fun

Thanks, i hope for good luck
Nice one, i've always wondered what it would be like to be a line umpire. How did you get into it? Imagine being one on centrecourt at a grand slam ..

I talked to a friend how cool it can be, so I looked stuff up and asked in a forum, went to the course (2 days of material + test + 2 days of internship, judging without pay)

I saw in AO the biggest israeli umpire that was the one who taught us the course. and I always see all the other experienced ones in the israeli davis/fed cup matches good for them

I'm no geographical expert, but wouldn't be the southern island be closer to south pole, making it more extreme weather?

Apart of having a lot of sheep, inventing the Bungee and exporting this movie director who directed the "lord of the ring" movies, anything special to report from NZ?

I don't think that I have to tell you about Israel, if you watch the news or read the papers. Although, when one lives here, it's not as bad as described in the media.

How strange we drifted away from the Shahar topic....

Nope we don't really have extreme weather in the South. Occasionally in winter it snows, but thats about it.
NZ is ofcourse famous for Peter Jackson and the LOTR movies, sheep etc. Rugby is our national game here - Jonah Lomu is famous worldwide, as are the All Blacks.

Yea i've seen a bit on the news about Israel - never good to see conflict happening in any country. As i work in a travel wholesaler, we sell packages to Israel and from what i've seen it looks like a great place and I hope to go there one day.

Shahar will return to topic when she resumes some matches!

Hope for you..What are the odds there will be snow where I live?
Oh thanks

lol, it really doesn't seem anyone here sorry, especially when Olmert laughs with the press..But we have no reason to be sorry, we just say we didn't do it (But those who did, did us a great favor )
