      How 'bout I just strap a hook on Dunlop and mail him to ya? No charge. And no returns.

      So when will YOUR ornament be sold on the tennis channel website? I've love one with Dunlop too! Happy Christmas and a crazy tennis New Year to you and yours!

      njnyc, I'm surprised you lived to tell about it. I heard there were casualties. mamajana, Davydenko will be getting some well-deserved Sweet Spot love in the coming weeks. And vlovestennis, ya gotta feel for the Wimbledon runners-up. But Fed showed you can rebound. Hopefully that's the lesson.

      Fantastic Post James.I have to agree with you on the highlights and lowlights of this year...I got to see some of Dent v.Navarro.What a refreshing treat to see these 2 play old school tennis and compete so well.Seeing Taylor come through after all he has been through and high-fiving the fans almost brought me to tears....I am still kicking myself for missing my boy Rafa v.Sexy Verdasco.My dvd/vcr player was on the blink.So i could not tape it.Definitely one of the years best.Probably one of the best ever played @ The Australian....I have Rafa v.Djokovic taped.What a great match.Boy,Rafa hasn't been the same since....I have Roger v.Del Potro too.Who knew this would be Del Potro's coming out party.I thought Roger was a lock.....Roger v. Andy @ Wimbledon.Wow!!!!!I have always liked Andy.This could have been a career-changing victory for him.To finally win Wimbledon and his second major.He will probably be having nightmares about this one for the rest of his career.I don't think Andy has really gotten over this defeat.He may never.....

      Good one James! I think 2009 held the most drama for the WTA in a long time and some truly fantastic tennis. I am really looking forward to some excitement in 2010 with Justine back and Serena at #1. As far as the men go, my favorite come back kid is Nickolay Davidenko. He is playing some mad tennis!
