    22. Taking off the July 4th holiday so you're home Wednesday through Sunday and getting up at 6a every morning to catch Breakfast at Wimbeldon and turn on Wimby Live meaning you get less sleep than if you'd been going to work and looking at the television screen and the computer screen at the same time.

    ROFL, yep that's one big risk, but for me skipping church mean jinxing Fed or whoever I'm rooting for that particular day. LOL

    23. You try your best to get the latest scores on Friday team lunch with the office group via borrowing an i-Phone and trying to login to www.wimbledon.org. (The i-Phone keeps hanging tho).

    24. When you know your favorite player's WTATour profile identification number (it shows up in the address bar) from loading the profile a million times.

    And for the record, Lindsay Davenport's number is 40106.

    25. You don't really mind the rain during Wimbledon because you actually like to watch once again the 1816 tie-break between Borg and McEnroe (Over and over and over and....)
    26. And you then tell your S.O. "I saw it live the first time".
    27. You know who Chris Lewis is.

    28. You can name the junior grand slam winners from the last 3 years.

    29. You schedule sleep around the times you can follow matches live ... on an online scoreboard

    30. You e-mail a friend on a different continent, and you can tell them what the weather will be there tomorrow because there's a tournament playing there

    31. You drive to more than one store in order to find purple and green highlighters to mark up your Wimbledon predictions bracket with, then lose the highlighters, drive back, and buy three more sets just in case, letting family members know where the other sets are should you forget.
    It's hard out here for a Zuz.

    32. You own a Mary Carillo voodoo doll equipped with needles and everything... And you have your own community needle exchange program--it's just a little different than most. The needles don't have to be physically clean... They just have to be spiritually clean.

    Not that I would know anything about this kind of thing...

    So true!

    33. Melzer, paszek, and wilander are part of your normal vocabulary...and not because they are the names of tennis players.

    34. You're talking to your mother on the phone, and she realizes that you haven't said anything for about a minute, and she says, "Are you watching tennis? Well, just call me back when it's over."

    35. You are at work on a Sunday afternoon, and instead of trying to get everything done as soon as possible, you find yourself watching the mixed doubles final on a 4 inch livestream, which extends your time at work for hours.

    36. You think the world is coming to an end on Saturday when you're sitting in a sport's bar, Wimbledon semis playing on a flat-screen, and you hear some guy ask his friend, "Do you think you pronounce it Duh-joko-vick?"

    38. You can't fall asleep at night because you're trying to remember the last name of Tim Henman's USO 2004 3rd round opponent. Blessed sleep, thy name is Tabara.

    (It was a magnificent match, Incidentally, I thought Michal had retired, but he's actually played some challengers here and there in the last couple of years)

    39. You get someone to text you scores of first round Davis Cup matches... after every set
