PM him, he'll be more than happy to give the low down.

No I'm an Australian. I live on the Gold Coast in Queensland. I've been to the Australian Open before and I saw Gonzalez vs. Hewitt 4th round in 2007. I probably wouldn't be that unkind to my own country.

I'm glad you fessed up. euroka is an Aussie ex-pat. I hope you stick around. We always have room for the Aussie, mate.

Cool!!! Does that work in Australia? :confused1: B.T.W, I've put up some new polls if you are interested. If we keep these posts up though, we'll get a 5th page and that would be awesome. I'm only a monthold. Are there any posts on this website in any category that have 5 or more pages?

Mathematically speaking, this poll is way to small to have any meaning whatsoever..... :)

I already told you its significance. Opinion toward Wimby is changing over time and that in itself is significant.

Isn't it interesting that Wimbledon now leads the favorite poll, and is the lowest in the least favorite poll....  :innocent:

It's very interesting. I thought both RG and USO would lead hands down.

And just remind us which one the goof from Chiago picked? Surely it can't be 'your home Slam'?  :)~

RG, should have looked that one up before you asked. The ROW can be objective. Brits are still tethered to the teets of the Queen. Your fondness of pomp and pageantry serves as a symbiotic bond to Wimbledon that can never be severed.
