    Hi, Q&M son. Well, I was just throwing the question out there... As it's not really a high-profile, top-ranked player I wasn't getting my hopes up too high. However, given the wealth of tennis knowledge here, I thought maybe somebody at some point had heard about it.

    By the way Dino -- you nick-pic -- that's Professor Balthazar I presume. An old child-hood TV-star. With his "special" super-compounds...

    Thanks, I'm quite curious...

    It is Professor Balthazar, indeed. Without analyzing too much, I guess one reason why I like him is that everything seemed so simple back then. There was a problem, people told Balthazar, he thought for a while, put some stuff in his magnificent machine and out came the solution in a test-tube. Perfect! Problem solved.

    Och han funderade, och han funderade... :wink:

    Rikard was tellling a lots of stories about his own experiences, especially about girls and lots of the stories was about ladies on the WTA tour. And many of them seemed to be not true.

    Me and Rikard are old neighbours in Sweden, and we were often on the same parties. I heard a lots of stories, and many of them just canĀ“t be true.

    But Rikard was a very very nice person and very very generous.

    Best Regards DrJimmy

    OK, thanks a lot. I've only watched him play and have no reason to doubt that he's a nice guy. Just thought it was a peculiar nick name.

    Is "wikipedia" a reliable source? On a scale of 1 to 10, I wonder how it rates?
