I can tell a little difference.
I don't think I have a really big aussie accent but when I go to Europe next year I bet every-1 will tell me that I do.

We will miss you Kim!.


Best of Luck in 2007 to: Kim & Bryan, Lleyton, Alicia, Todd, Sam, Chris, Casey, Wayne, Kirsten & all the other Aussies & injured players.
