"Ready as i'll ever be. From the intense training i have had over the 'off' season i should be back much better than i finished 2001. The training i have undertaken, which is now finished, was mainly on my knowlege, rarther than my speed. So from training normally and getting match practice i should improve."
ILT is a 3 times title winner, including 1 normal tier and 2 ITF tiers. He has made another 2 finals, including a normal tier and a Grandslam which was the French Open of season 1. However after the French Open his form sank. with numorous Defeats in Semifinals and Quarterfinals.
However he has no points to defend at all during the hard season untill Oklahoma (Where he made Quarterfinals) except for 1 point at the Australian Open where he lost 1st round last year. The Clay season is much different. With a tournament win in Klagenfurt, Runner up at Estoril and a Grandslam Runner up points to defend it will be difficult, this will be the the most important time for ILT.
LOOK FORWARD TO THE NEW SEASON OF TTT, COMING SOON

<font color =orange size=5>WilliamsLover admits he don't expect to much of him in 2002</font>
The former number 3 of the world, and the younger of the TTT players, say he is not so ready for 2002 <font color=yellow>"I need to spend my holidays with my family, now I'm back to try to pratice. 2002 will be tougher than ever." said the fourth of the world.
About his first tournament, "I think it's a shame we play Auckland as we can play Goldcoast. I am still on doubts if I will play or not." and say that he will try to make his best to overcome some personal problems that made he skip Wimbledon in 2001.
WilliamsLover doesn't mention rivals of him, only one in special "I think ILT will be better in 2002. I hope he comeback better than his ending-season of 2001."
