Re: I have a new tennis blog. It is superb

hadn't read the Mother Of Tradesman blog before... i think she's a pretty astute character... reading between the lines you can tell she knows her shit... indispensable asset to the LTA imo...

everytime i read something about the Beast the more i'm thinkin he'd be worth sharin a few beers with for certain... partnered hewitt (US Open), rafter and stolle for doubles success... obviously a fave there...

Yeah, I'm a fan of Judy. She knows her stuff like you say and also takes the piss quite a bit, which is a plus.

Jonas Bjorkman even named his kid Max. Obviously a stand-up guy to be honoured in such a personal manner.

Been writing fuck all in last week. Graduated last week so was on the beer quite a bit.

Anyway, banged out the week in tweets to keep things ticking over:

Re: I have a new tennis blog. It is superb

Great blog, love it and need to add it to faves.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Been very lazy, have a massive amount of them to do at some point tomorrow. Will need hours.

Just uploading some pics. Got some more interviews lined up, just have to do work on the questions.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

True. Need to my name out there.

Reading list is up:

http://shanktennis.com/2011/01/25/th...list-25012011/

Good interview with Krickstein. Also good piece on Fed's training methods.

Bit of a lazy effort as well because I just left the AJ, krystela and Judy blogs up there for another week

Re: I have a new tennis blog. It is superb

Henry, I am going to a challenger next week. I can do some stuff for you.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Thanks a lot Shotmaker.

AJ, that'd be sweet. Send anything you want my way. Not sure how it works with setting up profiles for other contributors but I'll look into it
