I heard that one before but I THINK it is exhibition, I guess <img src="rolleyes.gif" border="0"> I heard some rumour that Lleyton will play the event? I really don't know about it.

Hi Mon's Boy - The Peter Drumstick Challenge is a new event formed this year for the ATP Tour. It has been confirmed that both Hewitt and Phillipousis are playing the event, which will take place at the Boorondara Tennis Centre. It is mainly to serve as a warm-up event for aussie players, but I guess they will be pushing for an international field in the future.
Hope that helps! <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

(Did anyone detect my American accent? <img src="redface.gif" border="0"> I really have nothing to add on this topic. I'm just so utterly bored as you can probably tell by all the posts this morning. Besides it gives me an excuse to feel like I'm in Oz with the rest of you.)
Has anyone seen Dorothy??? <img src="wink.gif" border="0">
(I know I've lost my marbles - forgive me, it's the morning after New Year's.) <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

LMAO! That's a pretty pathetic attempt at an Aussie accent maaaate <img src="tongue.gif" border="0">
Who the fuck is Dorothy? <img src="tongue.gif" border="0"> <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">
Can u guess I'm more bored than you? So is this whats gonna happen from now on every time Sandrine and Iva go crashing out in the first round of tournaments? <img src="redface.gif" border="0">
That's cool, I'll hijack this thread with ya <img src="cool.gif" border="0"> Mirza, wont mind at all.

Jan 1st, 2002, 12:42 PM

Jan 1st, 2002, 12:51 PM

A slut came to Melbourne wearing Red Shoes and was working on a Street corner in Boroondara?
Gee's I didn't see her and I live in Boorondara! I think you got your area confused and you mean St Kilda hehe cos Boorondara is too upmarket for sluts, its a land of yummy mummys married to wealthy merchant bankers who drive tax deductable range rovers!
Mon's Boy do u have any clues about Melbourne, you have lived here quite a few years yet you don't know areas only 10 minutes from your house! LOL. I find that quite amusing. Its not like Boorondara is small either, its home to nearly 400,000 people!
Also Steven, the Aussie Assault is an annual event, has been so for the last 7 years or so at least!
