Thank you Frank! <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> <br />How are you btw? I haven't heard from you for a while!
Prettige verjaardag Brenda! Lang zal ze leven, lang zal ze leven lang zal ze leven lang zal ze leven in de gloria in de gloria in de gloria hieperdepiep Hoera! hieperdepiep Hoera!! (a little Dutch birthday song for her <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> )
I remember her! The first time I heard her name I would have sworn it was an American! But then I found out she was from the Netherlands! Sorry Brenda Schultz-McCarthy does sound American though. <img src="wink.gif" border="0">
Anyways, she was known as one of the best servers of our time, not to mention she beat my Arantxa at 94 Lipton. <img src="frown.gif" border="0"> But too bad she had that friggin back injury all the time! I would have loved to see her best serving and Venus in a match. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

I can understand the confusion about Brenda. She was as "American" as someone could be who wasn't actually from here. I remember her booming serve, and scattershot forehand. But she also had a pleasant personality.
I remember one year at the US Open when she had a late mixed doubles match. She was asked afterwards how she was going to prepare for her quarterfinal the next day. She said she was going to go back to her hotel room, get some rest, and "... come out tomorrow and kick Conchita's ass." (She said this with a grin.)
Hi, adnil, I'm daily on board for around 15 minutes, mostly in the ~04.00am-board-time. But, nothing to say, so nothing to write. My last posting here was (last week) with Brian (Steward) for supporting his Chanda-pages with pictures next year.<br />Next week (but still this year) I will send You some new Mandy-pics to Your new @-address, comming from Sebastian ...<br />... with greetings ...<br />Yours Frank
She was always funny and she always gave interesting interviews and she said herself too that she felt more home in America because everything was bigger as here in Holland and since she was very tall, it fitted her better <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">
