I know it's a little early, but I'm ready.

No, it is never too early. 
I don't know if I've drunk the koolaid, but I'm hoping Nalbandian gets his first GS.



welcome to the forums fleabitten. you have come to the right place. the founder of this site is also a big time architect. you will meet him soon.

once again, post away and have a blast.

thanks for the welcome.  i never said I was a "big time architect"  LOL.  But if I did I guess you wouldn't be able to prove me wrong.  I'm kind of a medium time arcitect.

You got some wires crossed. Are you an archictect?
The guy who started Tennis4you is one. Everyonce in a while he will post his latest design, though he hasn't done that in a while.

It bores me so much I would love to live in one of the houses he designs.  :lust:

An ambition fulfilled
And is the sawdust jealous?

Wires are definitely getting crossed on both ends.   ..-)
I am indeed an architect which someone must have seen on my profile.
I design schools, restaurants and custom homes in Santa Fe, but I'm not here to talk about that!  LOL
I'm trying to escape my real life with my biggest distraction: tennis!
I promise I won't post any photos of my work.

That'll be another huge set back for Ancic after all the problems he had last year if it is confirmed.

Indeed. I thought it was mono he had before (too lazy to look it up right now).... they sure seem to be starting to drop like flies though :(

I know he had a serious case of glandular fever last year I think it was. They really are dropping like flies, seems like this season will be no different from what we've become used to with all the injuries we've had already   :Confused:

She does appear to be looking in much better shape than we've seen her for a few years. Maybe this is the year she's begnning to realise that as each year passes by so does a year of her career and she knows this is the time to put her injuries and others issues/problems behind her and concentrate souley on her tennis.

Saw her in the Hopman Cup on TTC and she looks stunning, though her movement on court didn't appear to have improved much.   :confused1:

Awesome picture of Serena... she does indeed look "well trim"  as we say here.

Court looks good too...

Thank goodness for the AO... what else is there at this time of year?!

 :))
Seriously... those man bags of Federer's have GOT TO GO!
