Jamie Murray and Colin Fleming got a BYE for Sunderland Tournament because they are the number one seeds.


I ball girled for Jamie Murray at the sunderland tournament. Random Fact for you there.

Some other player... I can't remember his name though.


Woah thats so cool!

Crying or Very sad  Puts my claim to fame of ballgirling for Newcombe and Roche (top Aussie doubles players for most of those thinking "WHO"?) Wink

But in that time they were the Lleyton and Roddick of their day.

I hope the German wasn't Tommy Haas? I absolutely wub him


Now if it was Nicholas Keifer I would understand that. Wink

Thank goodness. I would hate to think that the amazing Tommy (and pretty good looking with it!!!) let you down.

Colin was cross with Jamie last week as he felt that Jamie let the team down, kept going for outragous winners and missing.

Colin beat Matt Smith 6-7, 6-0, 6-2 yesterday:

In the challengers that come here, the LTA don't give the women ball girls/boys. Only the men are deemed important enough to be provided with them. So in answer to your question no I haven't.

Well, here's the thing. I got training, but I only get asked every tournament because I play at that club for there team, and they ask all the 14-16 year olds from the club to me ball girls/boys. I got my training for free, and it doesn't cost. But I'm not sure about other places. I only know for wimbledon and queens they ask the local school kids and train them beforehand.
