Just coincidence, or perhaps something more . . . ?

    If you would field an all-star tennis team based on the month the player was born, look what August would bring to the table!
    Of players in the past, start with Rod Laver, throw in some Pete Sampras, Jim Courier, Guirellmo Vilas, top off with Mats Wilander. OK, you say, but what about the current crop of players? Your number one player would be Roger Federer, backed up by Andy Roddick, Carlos Moya, Chela and Lapentti.
    Scary, or what?
    Yes, I was born in August (a day after Pete, the same as Lapentti---August 13. ) No, the tennis Gods have not smiled upon me. Yes, I have too much time on my hands!

    Count back nine months... I think there are more people born in Aug/Sept. than any other time of the year.

    Just coincidence, I'm sure, since being an August baby hasn't done a thing for MY game.
