Talking people of TOP, nice?

w0w. i just read through all the topics on this thread i was curious how TOP started and who started it and what are you guyz etc..so i decided to go back and do some research..
gosh! you guyz had/still have such a nice bonding which is really good to kn0w.. it would have been really good to join TOP earlier and be updated all the time about Lindsay and also get to know you guyz..

anyway, i didnt find any topic that answer my questions..
can someone please answer the following:
>i< who created TOP?
>i< when was it officially called TOP?
>i< who are the very first members of TOP?
>i< what is the official website of TOP(cuz i found 1 but it's not updated.)

thanx

I miss you Lindsay.
I miss hitting some balls too! LOL.
I miss tennis.

as far as i remember TOP was formed in 2000 at Indian Wells...by our currant mod Jacs and some others...a lot of the original members dont post anymore which is a shame...remember jabberwocky, matt,baddy...we first started out on the official wta forum....yes, the wta did have a forum at one point...but it was crap and kept crashing every few days...luckily this site was formed and gradually people migrated here...every so often a former wta forum member would show up lol..any lindsay fan is welcome..all we ask is you take the oath...easy! we used to have positions as well...eg) the spys would be in charge of locating pictures and lindsay news and posting it...board of directers for important discisions like what entertainment should be had at the partys....which we havent had for a while....maybe we should get one going again--remember the wine cellar and kareoke lol.

Yup true to all. Jan and Rache were also there. Actually forming TOP was by accident because I just started a thread asking who are the other Lindsay fans and the people who posted thought that I was forming a club so it just built from that. Rache told me that she was trying to get one going for years. The one who came up with the name Tower of Power was another who has disappeared ever since we moved to WTAWorld.


I remember the positions! They kinda got lost because of the board crashes and the injury lay-offs. I miss the wine cellar and the karaoke as well

It's not shyness I have. It's just that I'm not one of those people who loves to open a newspaper of magazine and see myself all the time. I don't like that at all. I prefer to play my tennis which I love, and with which I've been blessed.

im still up!
anyone believes that Lindsay has vistied this site??

i just read umm Rayrob's post "a poster called Davenport" link
and i researched Davenport's post..

Poll: Ai vs Kim
Posted By Davenport

This match-up should be very interesting because Ai appeared strong in Scottsdale. However I think Kim should edge her out considering her recent impressive perforamce in the clay tournaments.

WARNING! Caught on camera: TOP's @ Lindsay's reception!
Posted By Davenport

this is cute stuff thank you everyone


Davenport pulled out
Posted By Davenport

The condition of my hamstring is not too serious but since this is clay, i don't want to aggrevate it. I hope I'll be ready for the French in time.


10 An early announcement but Lindsay has commited to Pilot Pen Event
Posted By Davenport

About Eastbourne, I'll still have to consider but Pilot Pen and JP Morgan Chase are on my mind right now

Lindsay Got Married! Picture!
Posted By Davenport
all of you here are lovely


Can Momo get that sweet backhand to work against SERENA?
Posted By Davenport


Her backhand better not work today or else I'd have to work hard in Roland Garros to catch her up hehe

Not many grandslam champions currently playing
Posted By Davenport

Winning a grandslam is pretty tough and you have to be consistent in your game, something that top players must have throughout their career
------------------------------------------------------------------------

anyone convinced??

anyway, i'm OUT

I miss you Lindsay.

Yeah, I actually think it was a joke to be honest. A lot of people go around this board pretending to be the person in their name...and it's just a running joke for them to answer the post as if they really are that person....it makes for good comedy.

It would be great to think Lindsay did visit but i doubt it.... not convinced anymore

Also, you may call me Rache or Rachel - no problems there. I'm glad you like my TOP merchandise thread - I had forgot about it It was good to read it and remember posters from the old days.

I was one of the original members with jacs, Jan, Kaz etc....most don't post anymore but it's nice to know some of us stuck around.

I used to think I was the only Lindsay fan on earth. Then I found TOP and found out there are people who are more crazy about Lindsay than me. Jacs thanks for starting this board it a great place to come and chat about a great player and great person.

Thanks but like I said, I shouldn't so much credit for starting TOP as it happened almost by accident. You guys are the one who gets the discussion going. The admins were the ones who gave us the forum when our old forum disappeared. These days, I just moderate.

It's not shyness I have. It's just that I'm not one of those people who loves to open a newspaper of magazine and see myself all the time. I don't like that at all. I prefer to play my tennis which I love, and with which I've been blessed.
