Hello people!!

As u probally know weve been trying to find pics of lindsays tournement wins to put together a little book thing for her ready for wimbledon. As its now middle of april theres not long to go. Anyone who wants to be involved in the making and creating of the bookelt could u please say so here and we can get going!! below are a few ideas of things we could put in it.

1- picture of her with trophys from all 40 wins..maybe 1 victury per page..u know make it pretty think booklet :-)

2- list of carrer achievements...number 1, olympics,fed cup etc

3-messages from all her fans....tell her why were fans, why we love her, our faveoorite matches of hers..why we are TOPS.

4-The history of TOP. how we got formed, where, why, the oath

anyone who wants to get involved..email me or post here. Again i dont have much internet access so when we decide who does what if people email there finished bits etc to me i can put it together.

thanks for your time.
love

OMG This is SUCH A GREAT IDEA!!!:bounce: :bounce: :bounce:
I am so interested in it Kelly. If you want I can help you organize the message thing to Lindsay, and aybe help you with some pictures of her trophys, the ones I'd like the most.
First of all I believe a list of ALL her tournament woins should be posted. I remember someone did that not so long ago, but we MUST be organized cause if not it'll be a mess.

Anyway, i'm totally in,

Joaco

I will help where I can. I can try and find reports on her, probably from her early days right up to the present time. Don't know how successful I will be but I will try and be involved.
Great idea

i'l help!! what ya want me to do?

Kelly
Apr 16th, 2004, 02:03 PM
alright thanks for the input. ive emailed the wta to see if they can help with finding some pics from her early wins...but im not holding my breath for a reply. im also gonna email ace tennis magazine to see if they know where we can get pics..if not we'll just have to make do with what we can find. my plan for that section is an A4 sheet with tournement name at the top....the pic of her with trophy and who she beat in the tounment.

Jan- seeing as you have been a Top from the start i was wondering if you would be interested in doing a History Of T.O.P..u know how we got going..when..about the oath how many membrs the roles we have.

Joaco- It would be a great help if you could rally people round to get them to write letters to lindsay..post messages on tennis sites, everywhere u can think off...tell them to email there messages to me or to you...cos then i can print them off and stick them all in the book. Any pics u can find will be good too.

LindsayRulez- would be intested in doing lindsays career highlights...about her number1 ranking, doubles titles, fed cup,wta awards etc

foreva lindsay- again photos of tournment wins with trophys..the morepeople we have looking the more we should find and would u be interested in doing an artical on her junior career..things she won, rankings pics if u can get them.

i have ran dry of ideas at the mo...so if u have any ideas what to put in let us know. I have started putting to gether the tournements victory part..

again feel free to email me...and whenever you finish an artical or somert email it to me to put in. All pictures can be posted here and then we know where they are..

thanks
love kelly

Kelly, I will have a go at the history of TOP and see what I can get together. I will have a word with jacs as I am sure he will be able to help me with the history of TOP as well as with other ideas although I think he is a little short of time at the moment.

This is exciting. :cool:

Kelly
Apr 20th, 2004, 11:29 AM

The article thing is great! I have an idea.... i remember once in the old forum of Vale's, someone started a thread and it went like this : What would a day with Lindsay be like? I remember some posts really cracked me up, if Linz reads it, it would make her laugh too.

Anyway, just a suggestion...

Joaco :)

REally, really cool idea :)

I think Vale's site has pretty much most of what you are looking for - http://utenti.lycos.it/magiclindsay

That includes a brief history of the TOPs... i think the oath is in one of our threads here :)

LindsayRulez
Apr 21st, 2004, 06:04 PM
Okay this is really exciting! When do we want to have all this done by? I really want to put a lot of effort into it, and I will be able to do that next week, so I hope you don't want it too soon! :)

the a day with lindsay sounds great..i'll set up a thread!

ive not managed to get started on the trophy thing...been alot of problems where i work...one of my manegers sadly passed away, i got a bollocking for being ill and im going in later today to have a meeting with the general maneger...it looks like though were not gonna be able to have pictures of every tourny win which is sad but they are no where to be found...lol

OK. here's the deal: about the message to Lindsay

just write me to ldavenport2001@hotmail.com and send me the message. You can include things like.... when you started being a fan of hers, why.... your favourite match of hers, if you do any ritual/rutine when she's playing and a little something of your own.
This is just a suggestion, you can write whatever you want. If the message is personal, just tell me so, and I promise I won't read it :devil: , j/k, I promise I won't.

Cheers,

Joaco

PS: Could someone please post ALL of her tournament wins year by year, including dates, places, etc. Cause we can search for some pics. in yahoo.com or google.com and we can put them in order. For example, if I find a pic. of her last tournament win, we can put it this way: 40 (number of title) and the pic. so It'll be easier for you to wrap everything up later.:wavey:

Kelly
Apr 30th, 2004, 01:54 PM
hi guys

the 40 titles thing is now under way...ive done about 15/20...got it all wrote down somewhere. ive set it out as one tourney per page with tournement name..then picture then who she beat. for the grandslams and olympic i have put more that one pic. ie. wimbledon the is a pic of her celebration, with the trophy, recieving the trophy from the duchess, the wimby ball with her and pete samprass..but i dont know if i like it or not...whether to just have the one pic of her with the trophy

I will help - I actually started to make a collection of pictures of all her title wins. Unfortunately I don't have them all but I guess it could be a good start! I will mail them to you Kelly - I think I have your addy, but just in case can you post it or PM me with it.

Thanks,
-Rachel :bounce:

This is a great idea!!!

I will email you a message Joaco for Lindsay within the next few days. Have got started on my contribution to the Lindsay project but will have to speed up a little, Wimbledon is not too far away.

jacs
May 4th, 2004, 07:20 AM

theres lots of pictures of lindsay making funny expressions etc and some are crying out for funny captions. well we could put some in the book.....i'll set up a thread for you to post them in.

jacs
May 18th, 2004, 02:17 AM
Ill probably be able to email within the week :)

Nikki
May 18th, 2004, 10:40 AM

Sorry about late reply. I have my 1st year uni exams starting this week. I finish on the 2nd June.

Kelly
May 18th, 2004, 01:55 PM
thats great guys...

theres a slight hitch on he 40 tournement thing...the only pics pre 96 is the olympic ones..and im really struggleing to find all the pics from 97-99...got the majors but ones like atlanta, chicago,amelia 97 etc are hard to find. maybe we wont be able to ut the all in..ive got about 25 though which is pretty good....still no replay from any emals i sent out to wta,ace mag, usta etc

jacs
May 25th, 2004, 12:16 PM

May 25th, 2004, 04:12 PM
I don't know if you're interested Kelly, but I am currently in the process of working on a front cover for this book. I've had a bout of artistic inspiration and so far I'm pleased with it - but then again, so far I have only done the back ground (A USA flag - with style ;)) I though it would be good if it had a professional-ish front cover - might captivate Lindsay's attention?!?!

I will email it to you when it is complete - and I may post it here so you can shed your comments on it.

-Rachel :D

May 26th, 2004, 05:20 AM

The idea is great and I would also like to help with photos or anything you could need for the little book!
I have seen Lin in the final of Strasbourg last week.....she lost but it was amazing to see her playing "she is amazing!!!"...I think I was the only person on the whole court that shouted for her :) ....the others shouted "allez Claudine".....

Anyway, I only wanted to offer my help....I have pic from this tournament...from her wins I have pic from the internet.....maybe you could need them too...

It would be nice to here from you guys.....bye swami :wavey:

Kelly
May 28th, 2004, 12:50 PM
that would be cool swami...were mainly looking for pics of lindsay with her trophys..anything pre 1999 would be great as these are the hardest ones to find and we pretty much have all the others. if you find any there is a thread in this section called @tourney wins' or something like that.

cant wait to read those articals!

keep up the good work
love kelly

Hi Guys

So sorry not to have been around much just lately but work has been horrendous of late. However I should now have more time to get on with my bit about the birth of the Tower of Power etc. Will be in touch soon. Joaco is it to late to email you with a message for Lindsay. I know I said I would do this some time ago and I know I have not done so.

Cheers - Jan :)

joaco
Jun 5th, 2004, 03:13 PM
It is never to late until you do it :). Actually... I haven't received any emails yet, so i'm still waiting. If you don't want to do that section about Lindsay's message please say so, and I won't be expecting any message. Anyway, I'm finishing mine already and I really hope that Lindsay can read it.

Joaco
