    This was from an email i got. It was about a 21 year old girl (Kirkpatrick) suffering from terminal cancer, who got married to her childhood boyfriend. She died 5 days after their wedding.

    Life is short, spend as much of it as you can on this forum (where your real beloveds are).

    There are many good Indian dishes with lentils.

    Nobody wants to face the wrath of Shamil Tarpischev. Marat Safin and Dmitry Tursunov prepare for their spankings after losing a Davis Cup doubles match in the photo below.

    As was the case with Stefan Edberg and Ivan Lendl, Elena Likhovtseva's right arm lagged behind her left arm during the service motion.

    Actually, I think it was produced by a hip-hop impresario named 'C-Section'. He a righteous doood.

    I rather like the North Pole photo. Do they have affordable housing there for people with creative personalities?:)

    Great photo, but impossible according to some "supposed" expert photographers I know. In short, the moon can't be seen with the sun behind it. However, with some light being reflected and/or refracted from Earth, maybe it IS possible. Again, great photo nonetheless.

    Take care and have a good week-

    MY dad just spoiled the IW finals for me (was waiting for the repeat match to be telecast and keeping away from the Pro Section here), and he comes up and tells me ... "That XXX won some tennis match somewhere, just came in the news"

    Grrrrr !

    This thread used to have a lot of passion. Now it’s all about introspection and admiration. I have decided to leave civilisation for good. I am flying to Tashkent tomorrow, and I will be staying high up in the Uzbek mountains for good from this weekend on. Of course, it only lasted a few months last few times I did this, but still. Good-bye tennis, internet, MTS and decent TV. I hope the civilisation will be happy now that I leave it – all the mindless tennis pundits on here, the new Japanese government, my shallow and pretentious Moscow friends, and everyone in the UK and the US that hates me too. For my quest shall reward me with higher level of communication, because…

    So many are too used to the two-dimensional world that is our being. The mountains add the third dimension to existence, and death…? death adds the fourth dimension to existence… That’s what Dagestani will often tell you about Chechnya…

    Part of me hopes that a day will come when I gather the strength to confront the spiritually bankrupt society once more, and there will be internet and tennis and such again for me. So I am sad, but I wish everyone happiness, and part of me hopes to read brilliance online again not too far in the future…

    I wonder why SoBad decided on Uzbekistan and not Russian mountains. The Altai mountains, for example, intrigue me. Will SoBad be at a higher altitude and spiritual level than Marat Safin reached on Cho Oyu?

    If you are serious, SoBad, I hope you have a good trip. Whether you spend your time as an agent provocateur, writing, or running from bears, I hope you enjoy your time in the mountains.

    Shamil Tarpischev uses a Babolat racquet. He once got so frustrated during a Tursunov practice session that he took a bite out of a chair behind him.

    It is a little known fact that Sentinel racked up 3045 posts by posting in the "Caption This" and "tennis books that won't sell" thread.

    Skagen was popular with 19th century impressionist painters, largely because of its unique lighting.

    We could learn a lot from crayons:
    some are sharp, some are pretty,
    some are dull, some have weird names,
    and all are different colors....but
    they all exist very nicely in the same box.

    A large percentage of famous Hollywood actors and actresses are well below average height and have disproportionately large heads.

    The tennis books thread has been moved to the O and E section.


    I have lost about 20 or so (ATP) points due to this ;-)

    When viewed from a passing plane high in the sky, Greenland looks uninhabitable. Greenland also often has spectacular skies.

    Sometimes I regret having a one-handed backhand when facing a really good serve.

    "Red Clay" was a Freddie Hubbard album


    Detective Columbo, "charting" a match:

    "Ok, the server (who was left-handed by the way) swings a serve out wide into the ad court. The server then performs a big--I mean BIG--split step just before reaching the service line .....draws on his cigar....the receiver (who was right-handed by the way) tried to chip a backhand return down the line but 'floated' the return up high too much .....draws on his cigar.....anyway, the server practically walks over and taps the sitter away with a backhand volley into the open court....well, looks like 'game, set & match' to me sir; er, what do YOU think?"
