Yes they do. They know they couldnt have had careers without fans.

Of even more significance, there's this little gap in Graf's resume the size of the hole in the ozone layer: It's called Monica Seles. Was Graf the best female player of all time? She wasn't even the best in the heart of her career.

LOL, just to clarify: They don't know any of us specifically exist. Just something to ponder during the Margaret Court and/or Monica/Steffi BFTP members' innards-ripping ceremonies.

Sorry for interrupting. Continue.

And I was going to make a trip to the windy city, but it's just getting too damn cold too fast. Nice to hear from you again Nelsus! How's your other half?

Oh, and on topic, I've met both Margaret and Steffi, and I'm quite sure the events weren't as memorable for them as they were for me. Never met Monica- probably would have but she was OOC during my Community Tennis Association Presidential days. I'm sure if she met me, the Commander in Chief of all things tennis, she would remember. Graf just moves too fast to even generate memories, and Margaret, well, she was was very polite in Rod Laver arena, but I suspect the dedication speeches that year for Margaret Court Arena kind of overshadowed her meeting me.

There is nothing more beautiful than Evonne Goolagong in full flight moving across a tennis court.

Lame. I'm not particulary a fan of your type of humor.

(OK, it took over a year and all. But, still. Sometimes, life does indeed provide unexpectedly lovely moments. Thanks for that. 60s Pixies)

Re: The NEW! and IMPROVED!! Maggie C & Steffi & Monica are Evil Cows From Hell Thread

....AND thanks to those who have indeed been missed. I suspect that this won't exactly be a full-fledged nelslus comeback- more nelslus as Althea Gibson vs. Chris. I mean, on the one hand- where else can one find a place to discuss whether Laurie Fleming, Kristen Kemmer Shaw and/or Wendy Overton are at least Facebook friends with Chrissie? On the other hand......Look, I understand the looniness of being a true tennis fan. I've also been worse than anyone at times about, ahem, certain vertically challenged players. But- over a year later, I check this site here and there, and without having to try all that hard- I still see way too much of posters just being horrible to each other. And all over tennis stars who don't even know of the existence of these fans vs. detractors. I can't help finding the humor and sadness with all of that.

However, one of course can't control how others see things and wish to behave. And, at the risk of yet again coming off as a scold and a nag- and to state the obvious- I can only take control over how I live my own life, and spend my time. So, I'll check in now and then- and try to remember to learn to use the ignore function a lot more.

OH- and alfa, thank you for asking, John is doing great. We will have been together for 17 freakin' years November 12th.

Well, well! Congratulations are in order! I just know if I spent 17 years with one person, I'd have made the news years ago over and argument on how the bath towels are folded or something that small. Good luck with the rest of your lives together.

At 1PM this afternoon, I turned 49, and looking back (I know, bad habit), I never thought things would turn out this way before age 50, or even think I'd not be playing tennis for a couple of years. I've got a good mind to learn how to play left-handed when I go back, because the last time I was out there over a year ago, I knew what to do, but the body was telling me "don't even think about it"! So I've been buying jewelry and clothing and shoes to keep myself busy.

And welcome back Nelslus!

This all makes me wonder if there is some magnet luring the oldie but goodie crowd back to the Blast. You, Jeffster, Andy T, and even BCP have popped in on us lately.

Perhaps Pixie Lamm is spreading some of that Pixie dust around!

All we need is Helen Lawson (remember her thread Something awful happened to Chris Evert! Something awful happened to Chris Evert! ?) and Pam Shriver to pop in and it will just be like old times...

How could I ever forget Helen with all her movie knowledge-and of course Pamentary!

Hugs for you too if you don't mind SE.

Oh, I miss pamentary and all things perfectly Pam. Aunt Helen checks in once in a blue moon, but from my understanding is embroiled in a liaison with this guy who pulled up into her garage with a flat tire. Not to worry- she's still big, it's the pictures that got small...

No disrespect or anything but Helen Keller could see that Chrissie has had work done.
