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

haha, thanks. Was pretty sleep-deprived when I banged that one out hence it was a bit weird.

Something on Dimitrov:

That one seems to have gone around twitter and got the site a decent number of views. Record day so far.

Great work Steve, sorry I didn't read your post here before... took AJ telling me at the AO who shanktennis actually was. Before that I was confused with who it was following me on Twitter

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

Good that Fran will be able to contribute reports to the best blog of them all.

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".

yes, I must PM Fran actually.

I et up a facebook account for Shank Tennis: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Shank-...64883210223308

Would appreciate it if you fb users could hit like. Dunno if there's any point in having a fb account but I'll give it a go.
