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

was gonna post it on your blog on the subject, but goes here just as well... the performances of Team USA make you wonder what could have been should Team USA not be so half arsed about the euro clay seasons...

isner and fish are performing, not to mention harrison sticking it up soderling... seriously could be so much better with less of a semi pro slash holiday mentality this time of year...

laughable...

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

yeah, I've been beating that drum for a while. I wonder how much of it has to do with their absolute worship of andy roddick. I'm not blaming roddick but he's probably more influential than he realises. As I said in the american clay article I did, if roddick played a full clay court season then the rest of them would have no choice in the matter.

You can probably trace it to Sampras but he at least earned the right to skipping some clay events by dominating iw/miami/wimbledon so often

Anyway, Five thoughts from round 2:
