Fab - Thank you! Smile

Would be nice for Britain to have a top class doubles pairing - is your opinion that they should concentrate on moving up the doubles circuit and seeing how far they can go, or working on their singles for a while?

I think Alex Bogdanovic might do well this year, he was starting to pick up a bit at the end of 2005, it would be nice to get another player into the top 100.

Well I'd like to see Colin keep at the singles as he's making real progress there - he jumped over 1200 places last year to 436.
However, I think Jamie Murray should abandon his singles hopes [I mean if you lose 6-1, 6-4 to Edward Allinson who's not even ranked on indoor courts you're not exactly going to be a top 200 player] and concentrate on doubles which he is strongest at.
 
For Amy, good luck in your tennis career you sound like you could be a promising player. Here's a tip from Billie Jean King:

If you're up against an opponent with big breasts make her play lots of backhand volleys, backhand volleys are hardest for players with big boobs. Billie Jean says if your opponent is  a C-D cup upwards, make her play lots of backhand volleys. She advises players to ask their opponents bra sizes before matches and to adapt their tactics accordingly.

I tried this tactic and it has worked out well, however:

In a mixed doubles tournament, I fancied the idea of a bit of pre-match flirting and so I could adapt my match tactics, I went over and asked my young, blonde and magnificently buxom female opponent what her bra size was. Alas, my good intentions were ruined by a stinging slap to the side of the face.

Oh, I forgot to mention, for a match report of Slabinsky - Bloomfield, go to Slabinsky's official website. I hear that the site admin are all gifts from the gods to womankind

This thread was originally dedicated to Alex Bogdanovic, but later this became the place to discuss the latest on Brits in challengers, futures and satellites.


So do not read the posts below and think that people are speaking non sense.  hug hug hug

I don't know about an Official fansite but I follow the British players on the BBC website and the LTA website.

I think he's a pretty good player although his head usually drops when he gets broken on his serve, if he had the fighting spirit I can see him being in the top 50 in the world.
