    Apologies again. I did notice the 'site' deleted a lot of great and fantastic comments over the weekend.
    I did not think them any threat what so ever but rather a consider for a while as things seem rather strange in the world of the sport. But nevertheless, our shops are always open 7 days on this side and managed to print all before they got taken. Pity....No offence to anyone. Thanking you!

    Hi there. I posted the previous comment under 'lolie' and was wondering if it's alright to delete with it not so appropriate somehow. It shouldn't happen again. Very sorry.,

    Hi Lleyton. How's the family and the games going. I hope you all have a wonderful year and many to come. I first watched you play during a Masters event in the early Millenium. You were outrageously outstanding and have achieved nicely in your career. All the absolute best for the Events. . . .(june26.09)
