    As DiscussTennis gets bigger, it's fun to get to know each other a little more. This is an opinion game. I'm going to list several opinion questions, then pass the baton along to another member. He or she will answer the questions, and then name another member to be the next to answer. And so on. Got it? I hope you'll all play.

    1. Who is your all-time favorite player in men's tennis?

    2. Who is your all-time favorite player in women's tennis?

    3. What is your favorite tournament (men's/women's)? (Two answers accepted.)

    4. What is your other favorite sport besides tennis?

    5. What is your all-time favorite band/song? (Can be one or both)

    6. Current TV (or web) obsession.

    7. The place you would most like to live, other than where you do.

    I'm passing the baton to @Billie. Get us started, girl!

    These are all great answers, and I would modify, based on Twisted's comment: #7: Could also be the place you would most like to visit.

    Yeah, we could revise that. Although there are a lot of places I like to visit but not live, so there is a slight difference in that. But either answer is fine.:cool:

    Good call, BB. I think we should just keep it moving. Everyone will get a go eventually, if they want one.
