thought the same Linda.  Some of it was very funny.   Loved the dig at Henman too!

There was a time when I knew what this tax thing was about Aileen - but I've forgotten!  I know that the LTA were trying to get some kind of dispensation but I don't think they succeeded.  I think it was that if they earn money in the UK they have to pay tax not only on that money but on a proportion of their world-wide earnings or something, which, if that's the case, does seem a bit unfair.  I'll for people paying their taxes (and dislike the way so many top tennis players somehow happen to end up living in tax havens) but I remember thinking that this rule didn't seem quite right.

Melzer is unusual in that he plays tennis left-handed but is right-handed in everything else.

Also I was using the word 'fresh' in the sense of meaning 'straight, or recently arrived, from'.
I think I read that Rafa is right handed too Aileen......except when he plays! It might have been something to do with having an advantage over 'righties'!

She decided to stop the chemo after learning that the cancer had spread to her lungs and liver, so it doesn't sound like the therapy was doing anything to help, although admittedly she might have been granted another year or two of life had she continued with it; but she made the choice so I respect her for that.
Yes......she didn't want to put the family through any more, but she had hoped to spend one more Christmas with them! All very sad!  Frown

Am guessing Judy mentioned this weekend as a possible date before knowing their updated schedules-Jamie is in Basel so he won't want to be free either!

Wishful thinking perhaps? Whistle

another reason Rafa doesn't like playing the 02 is that he has to pay tax to UK government, if he does
Also why he won't play Queens now, but I've never understood this tax thing anyway.  Why should players who live outside the UK have to pay tax to our government - assuming this is the case with all players from overseas?  Also is it the same in other countries, such as the US?
