I should be, I have been trying to keep the tv off lately because it can be very distracting to me. I love tennis.

I prefer to play it more as well. I got a nice serve. Probably approacing 100 mph. I have trick serves too :)

Suprisingly my backhand is much better than my forehand. People fear my backhand because it is powerful and has huge topspin. Okay off the pedastal now LOL.

Ooh, you're talking Tennis open? I thought you meant Golf ;P

Man, I should've figured that out by "Agassi" and "Tennis" in the two previous posts before mine ;)

Naah, not into Tennis, lol.

Ofcourse I follow the AusOpen... With 2 Belgian girls doing very well, it would be a shame not to.

Go Kim Clijsters! 8)

Hmm, well. That's what they wanted, so that's what they got. :)

I suppose I could ask our content guys who actually designed it, but if it's like the others, they make the spash, and we (our content folks) design the rest of the site during active tournament time.

Cheers.

Interesting. I suppose that explains why I like the rest of the site. Just not that splash page. It just doesn't even say "Tennis" to me. First time I went, I almost left thinking I got the wrong page. The only thing that kept me there was I sat debating long enough that the page refreshed. Once I got to the content it was great.

That reminds me, I need to go take a peek at what happened yesterday.
Thanks for the heads up to how it came about.

You a big tennis fan perchance?

I admit, I am not overly fond -- I even had the misfortune of bumping into Seles during the 2001 US Open, and not really knowing who she was. :) Long story. Though, I must say, the whole thing is very different up close.
In any case, I will be lead on Wimbledon this year so I will hunt up any backgrounds the content guys do for us and put them up for you if you wish.

Cheers.

Not a big fan, Daemonguy. Admittedly I quit watching after Agassi lost. Nice to know you will be leading up Wimbledon, this year...congrats. Do me a favor and make the front-page "look" like tennis! *lol
