i would like to see someone else take the title, no direspect to the
Federers/Jahangir Khans of Racketlon, but id also like to make a
prediction if i could only get into the result reporter to see whos
entered.takes forever. whats your top 12 JOD?. i fancy Christof Krenn
to take title in mens and in ladies a Kakasova Keller final.
with re to getting new countries involved, it will take time, but is
doing well in my view. im also pretty sure there are European
countries still to target.
cheers for now and good luck to all in Furth/Nurneburg

I think the top 12 of the world champs is all so different to what a
proper top 12 would be, if everyone was full time and playing every
event, i think we would still see Mikko, Eliasson, playing a lot of
finals with from time to time Adamsson D Struther, R Thomson C Reid C
Kreen Roland Helle,M Kallberg C Wall, Elmar somewhere there.

Ladies,i think i've said before i find it hard to still see any of the
woman taking part who could beat Sarah Mcfad, all about profiles, at
the moment its M Bjorkstrom L Jansson or Kakasova with perhaps Silke
and Susanna not to far behind, i thinks its a boyfriend ,girlfriend
winners this year by Mikko and Mickela, runners up, will see once the
draws done.

You having a South African open anytime soon P?

Good call, you've seen alot of these players play and know their
potential. you have alot of experience in tournaments and all 4
sports. i forgot bout Reid, havnt seen for long time.i remember the
afro ginger man, think he is concerving his energy and will surprise
in future.
you have alot of faith in McFadden, good to see you backing your own,
even after moving to a warmer? climate.
its difficult living so far, i would definitely have taken part in
more events, the vibe is great and i love the competition/challenge.

i think next year can only get better here in SA, the response from
players has been awesome, a few players whom i thought to be mediocre
are actualy coming into their own and may be contenders. sad to not
see any at this years worlds. a few tournaments ie: SA open maybe in
the pipeline. watch and sites for
more info. But one cannot excpect such rapid growth in Africa as in
Europe. But having a few of the internationals here will definitely
boost the movement. once again good luck and dont count yourself out
of that top 12 JOD, you have talent, just harness it into a good
racketlon player you are.

looking forward to the draw and odds to place my bets.
