Hey everyone :)

I've just joined the board, and I look forward to posting with you all. This seems like the place to be to talk about women's tennis!

My favourite player is Lindsay Davenport (LDF = Lindsay Davenport Fan), and I'm also a big fan of Sharapova, Kim and the Williams sisters.

Hey alibaby,

Unfortunately, no, I've never been to a live tournament. I'm afraid it's always been the TV for me...

Although it is my ambition to go to Wimbledon in the near future - I didn't enter the ballot this year, but I probably will for 2007.

Welcome. :wavey: There's a wealth of information and entertainment around here with some really nice and interesting people. Some folks will tell you to rot in hell if you say what they consider to be the wrong thing; as long as you aren't too thin-skinned that's great too! :lol:

C'mon guys, it's good to be friendly and welcome LDF to the board and all, but you seem to have forgotten the secret initiation that every member must undergo.

LDF, your initiation rite is to compose a 50,000-word essay on why Elena Dementieva should be not only the #1 tennis player, but also the Empress of the World.

We actually find that these essays tend to run a little long since Elena is so perfect, but we don't count off for going over the limit . . .

Nah, seriously. Welcome.

And it's really only a 10,000-word essay.;)

This is a stab in the dark, but is your favourite player Dementieva by any chance? :confused:

I heard about it on another board (BBC) and decided to check it out.

Yeh...

The less said about 'seles, davenport' the better. She really did create chaos on the BBC board. :(

:wavey:Welcome LDF! :wavey:
Anyone who is a fan of Lindsay and The Williamses, is okay in my book. :)
We'll work on that Maria flaw later. :lol: (Just kidding)
You have a lot of catching up to do, and I hope you enjoy yourself every minute here. However, I must warn you...
Never allow anyone to intimidate you while posting here, and you will survive. And remember. if you show the slightest sign of fear, some posters will decend upon you like the ravenous dogs that they are.
Anyway, happy hunting. :lol:

Hi LDF :hug:

It's me ... TQJ!!!

I wonder if Dav has been able to get on?

I warned them all about Selesdavenport (aka Selesfan on bbc board) - you can back me up on it can't you?

She tried to start a couple of threads on here, but I hope I stopped it. It would have caused a real commotion wouldn't it?

Hey TQJ :hug:

I've emailed Dav, and he's just waiting for his account to be activated. He registered a couple of days after me, so it shouldn't be long now...

Well done on stopping her - you really did the board a favour there.

I don't normally hold grudges, but she is persistently doing this. She keeps claiming she just wants to talk about the tennis, but unfortunately that never seems to be the case.

Anyway, enough of that...

O.K. now that you're settling in here there's an aspect of the board you should learn about: Reputation. Here's how it works......

Start a new thread that says either:

"For the love of everything Holy, when is Serena Williams going to pull her head out of her ass, lose seventy-five pounds and get serious about tennis??!!"

OR

"Maria Sharapova is never going to win another tournament, let alone a grand-slam. In terms of talent, she makes Kournakova look like Steffi Graf for Christsakes!!"

Then wait fifteen minutes and click on User CP. You'll learn ALL ABOUT reputation!
