Hello everyone, and thanks for stopping by. My name is Chris Griffin, and I have been placed in charge of this multi-million dollar operation when I'm not running after my kids, Chloe who's 9 and Cade who's 7.
James and I met in 2000, right after he turned pro out of Harvard and I was handling public relations for Dunlop Tennis (as I still do). Dunlop signed James (and his brother Thomas) out of Harvard to an endorsement contract, and, as it happened, I handled a number of events with him, getting to know him in the process.
In 2001, I resigned my PR position to become a mostly full-time stay at home dad for Chloe. After a year or so, I often found myself pining for something to do during naptime and episodes of Dora (you can only hear "Swiper, No Swiping!' so many times before you go clinically insane). So I threw together a website for him. James thought the idea was a marvelous one, so we were off and running around the French Open in 2002. And thus began my life as a celebrity hanger-on-er.
This is a great gig. Honestly. I've made so many friends with fans over the years, and chicks seem to totally dig it when I tell them I know James, okay, maybe not.
In any case, it's been a thoroughly enjoyable seven years during which time I've come to know James, his family, his friends and his fans much more closely, and I'm better for it.
So thanks to everyone and enjoy the site!
