is any player on women or men tour from your area?
i mean, maybe 30 miles away or closer?

Philipp Petschner who kicking ass this week in Metz on ATP-Tour is from Bayreuth, just 15 miles away from my home-village
he is ranked around #330
but will enter the top250 next week
and today he was on the front-page from our local newspaper

No one lives near me, not even 'good' juniors :o

All the better players live in or are at least from the Toronto region for the most part. And then most of them end up moving down to Florida for most of the year anyway ;)

Xavier Malisse and I were both born in Kortrijk. He lived in Hulste during his childhood, which is a suburb of Harelbeke (the city I live in).
Btw, Laurence Courtois was also born in Kortrijk :D

Also, Debbrich Feys comes from Deinze, which is pretty close to Harelbeke (2 stops/15min by train).

Michele Tyler, world No.22 in 1978, came from Bellingham/Catford in Lewisham, not too far from me. (She retired at the age of 22 but could have been SO good: she beat Tracy Austin, Pam Shriver and Billie Jean King in her too-short career!!)
