Take a look Sam - Theres a full on Gay Tennis Circuit with full rankings etc! Its quite a crackup actually. It sure will be an adventure.. and if I lose early Im just gonna go spend my time in the coffee shops of Amsterdam!!

My friend ended up shagging his german doubles partner in Dusselldorf a few weeks ago and then lost their next match 0 and 1 hehehehe...

I played the tournament in 2006 :bounce:

Amazing experience. This is actually one of the Grand Slams of the GLTA tournaments, one of the best organized and everything. The week we were there there was Dutch interclubs also so we shared courts with Muller, Bychkova, Harkleroad etc, we actually felt like real pros out there :lol:

You can see my pics and reports here:

Pics are in pages 2 & 3 (including my pics with Ashley :hearts:) and reports are in Spanish as it was originally posted in The Spanish Armada forum.

If you have any question let me know :kiss:

And good luck! :bounce:

I drawed the eventual winner in round 2 (got a bye in 1st rd) and lost 61 61 :help:

Then we went to indoor hardcourts for consolation (first time ever) and I barely managed to see the faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaast ball :haha: Funny thing? I lost against the eventual winner as well :lol:

Good luck. I played a couple Tournaments last year. One in Miami and one in Las Vegas. They are very fun.

Cheers Spiceboy.

Im absolutely FUMING!!!! They released the draw, then 24 hours later they released a completely different draw, and now Ive got the number 1 seed in round two, assuming I win my first round!!!

Why would they do that? Because their friends werent happy with the draw, they just decide to do a whole new one? Bloody queens....

Biggest tournament of the european circuit!

The Eurogames which is being held in Barcelona in July is bigger, but this is probably the most popular event that is in a fixed city every year. Good luck. I'm playing in A singles and doubles in Barcelona, not sure how long you're in Europe but I think it's waiting list only now for Eurogames.

Don't pay too much attention to the seedings, sometimes the higher seede players are just there because they've played loads of events, some of the lower seeds / unseeded players can be stronger.

Well, if you're around and have a chance you should head to Barcelona for Eurogames weekend, it's bound to be very lively! I got a bronze in the Antwerp games last year so hoping to do better this time, wish it wasn't on clay again though :(
