    Questions for Bud:
    What are your favorite nicknames that you've created over the years?

    I recall reading an interview with you many years ago where you said if you only had one media outlet, you'd choose print over television - do you still feel this way and why?

    Who was your favorite player to interview, and why?

    You can only watch one more tennis match - who are the players (any generation, any gender), and what is the surface or venue?

    Will you come to the TAT tailgate at the US Open?

    It would be wonderful for both Bud and his wife to attend our tailgate! We'd be so honored!!

    When you look at all of the personalities in tennis--the players, the coaches, the commentators, the powers-that-be in the ATP and WTA, etc.--who do you think is the most misunderstood, and why?

    During the Australian Open, I got the distinct feeling that you are not that fond of Roger Federer. If this is the case, are you able to share what that issue(s) is/are?

    *Who amongst the players have ended up being your closest friends? (Bonus points if you tell us who are your sworn enemies. )

    *Which players, past or present, have surprised you the most re: becoming champions- you just didn't see them coming.....Also, any juniors currently that you think are destined to become champs?

    *Jon Wertheim gave one answer to the following question- so, I'm very interested in your take on this.....How do you think that past doubles teams- say, BJK/Margaret, Martina/Pam, Court/anyone, the Aussie men....would do if they were playing today?

    Going to leave this open for one more day, in case anyone has any last minute questions. After that, we'll be getting them off to Bud.

    What was the best Grand Slam fortnight you have ever experienced?

    If you were not a tennis journalist what would have been your calling in life?
