    sure np. she was hot and *ahem* after we had crazy e-conversations so jumped all over me when we met...

    lol j/k. My GF would kill me if she saw this thread

    Anyways, it happened the other way around. I hit around with the TT member one day, then when I posted pictures of the courts I play at the member replied that the courts look familiar and stated the exact name the courts go by.

    Kinda rare since most of the people that I would believe be able to meet each other either live on the coasts, in big tennis cities, or knew each other before they became members on this forum.

    The first guy I ever played (and lost) in a tournament added me to msn a week ago because he saw my msn on TW and saw we live in the same place.

    The only other person I know of in real life on this forum is my cousin but I knew him before he joined so that doesn't count.

    I wouldn't give a care If I was to meet one of you guys. It's like eating dinner and then scraping your remains in the trash. ;)

    Get what I'm saying. ;)

    Was very close to spending a week with zhan at a camp. He was going to be one of the overnight counselors for the camp, which i was one of the overnight campers for. Everyone slept in a dorm hall, with 2 ppl per room.


    That would've been pretty cool.

    I might have met some people on TTW but not know that they were a member of the boards. I'd like to meet a few people on here though it'd be pretty cool.

    tykrum and I played doubles together in a USTA league a couple years ago and keep in touch a bit -- we figured out online we knew each other a year or so later. I met a nice guy named dmvprof for a singles match at Amelia Island last month, but I'll let him tell how that turned out.

    I live in the middle of nowhere. So unless someone is willing to sponsor my ticket there is no way I can hit with anyone. I do visit Dallas/Houston every 3 months in case anyone besides jaykay is interested. jaykay is already aware of this so he will be the first one I contact.

    I have played with tylerchadwick and he beats me all the time but I am getting closer and closer as far as just groundstrokes go.

    Like Gully said, we were doubles partners a few summers ago, and if it weren't for me being at away at school almost year round now, we probably would hit often.

    I was supposed to meet up with Megacedu at the Open this year, but she couldn't end up making it for some reason.

    Yeah, a person from here was traveling in my area so we played and it was a close 3 setter that I won. I have met other tennis friends through other tennis sites too.
