RE: Madeline


I might not visit these forums so much these days, but when I joined, over a decade ago now, Madeline was one of the most frequent posters and one of the people I remember from the site as people I considered friends. Was just browsing through the list of users to see who is still about that I remembered and considered sending a PM to Madeline just seconds before I saw this thread. Very sad :(

Really sad news. Always somebody whose views I was interested to read and she came across as a very nice person.

Only just come across this sad news. I haven't been a member here for that long and don't post much but I've been aware of her a long time. I've been browsing this site for what must be about 7 years now and also when I was first getting into British tennis properly (beyond the slams) I came across her on the old British tennis zone forum. In all that time she's been one of the most prominent posters. I think she was a big part of both sites? I'll always remember how much she supported the Brits, probably Andy in particular, especially in the early days.

R.I.P cry

Thoughts go out to her family and friends.

Edit - I think she was also the first person who made me aware of the BBC's need to switch channels mid-match during Wimbledon, or the Aus Open, something that in more recent years I think frustrated me just as much as it did her.

I think Madeline would have loved this one.....and her cushion wouldn't even have suffered too much

Well done, Andy.

From supporters and fans, both with us, and departed.
