    Hi. I'm glad the rounds have improved for you. A truly clever and sincere touch to start the year off. I was not very prepared for the moment though anyways, do look after yourself with best wishes! jan24.10

    Hi Sam,

    Happy New Year to you Sam
    I had been watching the match until the news had to come on.
    Found it all exciting nail bitting stuff.
    I have been a tennis fan since childhood and like to see the Aussies do well and give them the pat on the back they deserve when things sometimes don't go well.
    All the best in all your matches in all the tournaments.

    G'day Sambo. I have been a fan of yours since I first saw you around 2001. Quite a gorgeous Aussie in those days. You haven't changed much. Things do seem to be going okay for you. I like the Coast and my youngest bro was there for NZ Wrestling..A very tall mad bugger for 17. Congrats for reaching the third round at Wimbledon and do take care,..(june26.09)
