    Jan-Michael Gambill has a thing for Jaguars.

    - - - - -

    Speaking of Gambill . . . is he hurt or something? Still has a ranking, and won a few (very few) bucks this year, but has no match record for the year on atptour.com.

    Early on Agassi had every sports car you could think of, he still might have some sports cars, but he also has a mini-van now.

    Haha. Yea, I guess everyone has to grow up sooner or later and from what I've heard, having kids is pretty good for that.

    The time they showed him on TTC, he was driving a Porsche cab. Didn't see the Ferrari.

    Tennis Magazine did an interview with Haas several years ago. He had a Corvette and traded it on a Mustang 5.0 because the 'Vette was too much car for him.
    In TTC's No Strings, he was driving a Porsche I believe.

    I'd take it. Those are nice wheels. Supposed to have built it himself. Does it run yet?

    My wife and I vowed never to get a minivan but after having three kids in a little over two years we had to break down and grow up and get the dreaded minivan. But man they are nice for toting all the kids around. Man am I getting old.

    Look at the bright side. Plenty of room for the ball machine AND your racket bag in the trunk, without having to move stuff around.

    Yes, he's been hurt since January. He's playing team tennis right now, trying to come back but it's not going very well.

    There is a pro players cars thread in Odds and Ends, I believe. Lot of information, a few pictures. Try the advanced search function to see if you can find it (or search my posts in that forum only and see if that narrows it down).

    Martin Brundle? I haven't heard that name in ages. I just loved him when he drove the IMSA Castrol Jags back in the late 80's...

    I am going to see him play on Friday at a Team Tennis event here in Kansas City. I'll let you guys know how he plays... Maybe I'll get to see his car. :)

    Tim Henman used to drive a Mercedes, but now has a contract with Jaguar, I think.

    Saw him play against the Breakers in Newport beach the other night. He didn't look like the same player he was several years ago.

    Please do. He seems to be improving, won his two matches tonight with decent stats. Sadly, you won't see his car, they are locked up tight in the climate controlled garage in Spokane (except the one he shipped to his new house in Hawaii).

    Enjoy the match, I would like to hear all about it. :)
