Re: The Next Point - New tennis site

I'm pleased to announce the release of The Next Point Annual 2011.

Completely free to download, this volume includes just about all of my articles covering the 2011 season, starting from the Hopman Cup, and, fittingly, with Novak Djokovic.

There is a post about it here.

Cheers.

Re: The Next Point - New tennis site

Hi Everyone,

Another week's worth of posts up on The Next Point, covering San Jose, Sao Paulo and Rotterdam:

Empty Bleachers: Three concurrent tournaments, off to slow starts.

Worst-of-Three: Verdasco wins a terrible match against Marti. Caveat: please avoid if you're an easily-offended Verdasco fan. Otherwise, take it with a large pinch of salt.

A Fine Week in Holland: On Davydenko.

The Twilight of the Ponies: JMDP's personal Rotterdammerung.

Thanks for reading.

Re: The Next Point - New tennis site

Hi,

Another week's worth of posts up on The Next Point, covering Memphis, Buenos Aires and Marseilles:

The Wrong Place: Three more concurrent tournaments, with the wrong people turning up at each of them.

Pinecones in a Brushfire: Seeds tumble and burn.

The Nowhere Men: Great matches in February are always forgotten, as forgotten as fast-court tennis and one-handed backhands.

Forcibly Disarming: Melzer takes Memphis. Memphis takes the cake, which is then shipped to Graceland and deep fried.

Thanks for reading.

Re: The Next Point - New tennis site

Hi,

Another bunch of posts up on The Next Point, all covering Indian Wells:

Luck of the Draw: Indian Wells 2012: Just what it sounds like.

Luck of the Doubles Draw: Indian Wells 2012: Also what it sounds like.

The Unwatchables: Mandatory whine about the lack of early round coverage.

Battle-Hardened and Flak-Happy: Tennis returns to the screen. Andy Murray celebrates with his usual second round loss.

Untoward Scatology: Shit and Vomit are the themes of the week so far.

Forehand Compliments – A Ramble: On Djokovic.

The Usual Rules of Taste or Sanity: Quarterfinals. Federer, shockingly, beats del Potro. Nalbandian cannot get it done against Nadal.

It Was An Ace, It Was Victory: Two utterly different semifinals end with the same shot.

A Flash of Light: Federer. Title No.73.

Thanks for reading.

Re: The Next Point - New tennis site

Hi,

Another bunch of posts up on The Next Point, all covering Key Biscayne:

The Unwatchables (Part Two): Another minor rant about there being no coverage, especially in light of Gonzalez' last match.

Forced Perspective: Second round shenanigans.

When Only Gods Remain: Most of the seeds survived the early rounds, and now turn on each other.

A Sudden, Fey Glint: Roddick defeats Federer. Nothing will ever be the same. Except that it is.

The Tipsarevic: The first quarterfinal.

Drama or Quality: Apparently we can have one, or the other.

Too Much Luck: A final without drama or quality...

Thanks for reading.
