I go to Birmingham every year but I can say I've spotted him yet but you can be sure that I'll look out for him this year!

So, where did the name Mr Bean come from? Is that to do with the old Rowan Atkinson character or was that actually his name -

The only strange guy I cam accross was this one at Wimbledon. My friend calls him "Mr Steptoe" because he looked like father Steptoe of the TV program Steptoe and Son. He was standing by the barricades near the proctice courts, it was middle saturday. He kept getting all the juniors autos.

But this one junior player, he asked once while I was there and she said to him, "You already asked me once" to while he said, "oh sorry". Then after chatting to me and my friend, he asked her again, to which she got a bit adjitated, "You've asked me that a hundred times already - you already have it". Then steptoe turned to me and my friend, "God grief, these players today get a bit stroppy don't they!"

I hope he's at Wimby this year, I have to get a photo for my friend and send it to her!

oh god him. i hope virginie razzano doesnt play birmingham this year, when i went in 2003 she kept running away from him and he was chasing after her for an autograph. the other frenchies couldnt stop laughing.

however he met his nemisis in martina navratilova. he was too scared to even go and speak to her. although in fairness when she came sat next to me during molik 1st round match i almost wet myself.

god if he ruins my wimbledon i will firstly be disappointed, but then not surprised.

i loved it when he told maria vento's coach to "shhhh"

just been looking at that old threwad eggy. and mr clappy too. anyway here's what i said about him:

"vento's husband started shouting at him and he was like "alright man, calm down" coz he was talking really loudly and pissing everyone off. he totally harassed razzano and she was standing there while he took photos of her and foretz and dechy were pissing themselves.

sonya jeyasaleen was slagging him off to craybass and i think lee-waters. "why does this sport attract so many freaks" i believe was what she said.

he was odd, and he pissed everyone off. nobody wanted to talk to him, they just wanted to watch the tennis.

it's like "i don't fricking care how she did at the french", i want to watch her now and i can't with you rolling stats out at me.

freak of nature.

and mr clappy was wrong in the head"

"it was razzano he got one off, foretz ran away it he other direction. she went the back way round teh catering tent so he couldn't see her.

let's compare him to a nice group of asian schoolgirls who ditched school to go watch tammy. they cheered and were taking photos with their disposable cameras and tammy was waving and smiling back. that's nice."

Lol....

This reminds of me this man who comes every year to Toronto, and has a flag of every country in his bag. He is a HUGE fan of Lleyton Hewitt, so he always has the Aussie flag around. BUT, when it was a Chela (ARG) vs. Hewitt match, the man pulled out an Argentinian flag as well (to which Chela clapped his racquet). The man is realy abnoxious, making many loud gestures.

And then there was that guy who had some calander featuring WTA tennis players in scantilly clad clothing.......and the players were so afraid to sign it lol cuz they were freaked out!
