    Talking A year of total domination.

    Well, you can congratulate me on a very successful year in my tennis career.

    The Top Master's Tennis League in Montreal ended for me with a humble, but total domination and first win in 4 years.

    Out of 31 matches played this season, I somehow managed to win 28, finish the season ranked 1st.

    Moreover, it never happened before, but this year (today was the final) I also won the 2004 year-end championship with season's top 12 players participating. Check out the league rating and draw at:

    Hooray to me.


    PS: That hot receptionist must feel sorry she didn't hook up with me back then.


    By the way, watch out for me participating in ATPs Montreal Masters Series in Montreal in the summer 2005.

    Looks like you have it by a pretty large margin too. Congrats!

    Will do, Xshare.

    While I do spend a lot of time on the court, my good buddies, who spend way more time on it, are in the official ATP race.

    Practice with this guy for 5 years when we were kids! He is doing extremely well.

    The margin is, actually, a very dangerous thing. If you get to lose just one match, because of point difference, you lose tons of points and your opponent benefits well. The margin was a scary factor to keep my game under control.

    Nice going, Artashes. Must give you a tremendous feeling of accomplishment after years and years of dedicated training.

    It was all worth it, wasn't it?

    Absolutely. 16 years of training, although I did put the career on hold for about 3-4 years, but now feel like I can do some damage or at least be ranked well in Canada again.

    Good going Artashes.

    I have fond memories of my tennis days. Great place to meet nice girls. I met my first serious girlfriend (of 2 years) at tennis.
