Thanks for the thanks, but I haven't been here near as long as coetzerfan, so I had to pick cotzerfan1 as my name. There are never enough AmandaCoetzerFans ya now....

If there's another thread that's better for this stuff, please point me there - thanks

Cape Town - The new firm friend of Amanda Coetzer, South Africa's leading tennis player, Brady Anderson, an american baseball superhero with a market value of R138m, was turning women's heads in the Cape on Saturday.

Coetzer was at the Parow tennis club for the announcement of the Nike series for juniors, of which she is the patron. Anderson (34) was mostly at her side. To the question at the news conference of whether she had a firm friend, Coetzer laughingly responded: "Yes. He's outside here. And he'll take on anyone that wants to challenge him."

Afterwards the reserved Coetzer didn't want to answer questions about the new man in her life. "It's my private life. As him. Maybe he'll speak more easily," she said. She also didn't want the two of them to be photographed together.

Earlier this year she was friendly with the American Bill Behrens. They were together at Wimbledon.

Anderson said that he met Coetzer in November last year in Baltimore at a showcase tournament. The muscled baseball player is a special batsman and fielder with the Baltimore Orioles and has a contract for R138m with the club.

Anderson has stars in his eyes when he looks at Coetzer or talks about her. "We exercise together (on the tennis court and in the gymnasium).

She astounds me. She has run 40 yards in 4,78 seconds and will run 400m in under 60 seconds. Guys in Los Angeles have already asked if she doesn't want to run the 400 for the athletics club."

The two will spend a few days in the Mother City. Anderson doesn't know yet when he'll return to America, possibly just before Christmas.

The Coetzer family leaves this week for Keurboomstrand. Coetzer, rated seventeenth in the word, will catch a flight on Tuesday to Australia, where she will represent South Africa in the team tournament for the Hopman Trophy.

Her supporters will possibly see a new Coetzer next year, with not only a new coach (the Brit Nigel Sears) and a new friend, but also a new style.

Nice article... But how old is that??

Feb 12th, 2003, 10:49 AM
Dunno....from 2000?

Feb 12th, 2003, 12:11 PM
I think it must be the start of 1999, as amanda finished 1998 at #17...and she also was working with Nigel Sears at that time.

Shoudl this be moved to the other thread? :confused:

oh, well, it should be there. I think I posted it there for Maria, so it should say something about her in my post ;)

Nice interview/article (http://www.atptennis.com/memphis/news/03wfriday_1.asp)

Took me a while to find this on the krogerstjude website so I figured I'd post it. Probably stating the obvious to other Amanda fans, but Amanda sure gives a great interview; really shares her thoughts rather than a typical cliche. To quote Mary Carillo "she really lets you in"... And to Mary's standard cliche on "big babes" dominating tennis, all I have to say is

thanx coetzerfan :)

Hopefully Amanda will peak today!

Feb 22nd, 2003, 02:49 PM
No she needs to win tonight and peak at the bigger tournaments!!!

Ahh, one small step at a time - Ok, with Amanda's footwork it's always a flurry of steps that sometimes defy gravity.

Win or lose, I just hope she plays a match that lives up to her expectations, and that she can look back on with no regrets.

From the press, it sure sounds like Amanda is enjoying the moment - that's what counts, and will keep her on the tennis stage for our enjoyment.

Don't know how long the local Memphis paper will keep the article available, but it's a detailed review of the match and more nice quotes from Amanda.
