    I don't sit on anybody's nuts, especially some nobody. "Our boy" comment made me laugh too, by the way.

    Looks wonderful. I love the sound of the ball being struck--genius. I have to admit--this is better than what my friend has come up with thus far--your work is better, if I may say so. True talent there.

    If being ranked in ATP top 1000 makes you a nobody in tennis terms, what does that make Oceandrive?

    The top was made with flash and the rest of the HTML was coded poorly in dreamweaver, haha.

    :oops: better change that now lol, and another thing i would like to ask is, do you prefer CLINT or CLINTON? i figure you just liked CLINT but if you want me to change it i'll go and do that too



    thanks for all the positive comments guys. and clint i dont expect a payment or anything, since i volunteered to do this for you, and its not a job you asked me to do. so its ok

    i will take any small donations from anyone to help out with the hosting and domain costs though! they arent very expensive anyway, currently its hosted on my webspace but with no domain.

    im also working on a CMS system for you, so you can update it easily from anywhere, even the airport haha.

    Lawrence, you did a really nice job. The site has a lot of energy and engaging interactivity.

    Clint, I'm a writer by trade, so I'd like to offer my services gratis to create your profile.

    If you shoot me your pertinent info, I'll work something up and shoot it off for Lawrence to include.

    Very cool to see TT come together to help a promising player out.

    Hey, great of you to offer your skills. If you wan't I can hook you up with an account on the CMS, which gives you access to edit all the text with a WYSIWYG editor, no downloads required.

    Let me know :)

    The web page needs a "bottom" section. The blue upper "image" section took almost 40% on a 1024*768 screen. I think it will be better to shrink that a little bit. And in the mean time add a "bottom" section which usually provide links such as @copy rights, "Contacts", and etc.
