Re: The Next Point - New tennis site

Hello,

Another week's worth of posts up on The Next Point, all covering the start of the clay season:

Empty, Blissful and Still: Introducing the Roger Rasheed 2012 Desk Calendar!

The High Point of the Season: No Monte Carlo draw yet, so I have to talk about Houston, and how Americans aren't bothering with clay anymore.

Luck of the Draw: Monte Carlo 2012: What it says. The number 8 will feature prominently, one way or another.

Used Dishwater: Monaco wins Houston. Ljubicic bows out.

Thanks for reading.

Re: The Next Point - New tennis site

Hello,

Another week's worth of posts up on The Next Point, all covering the Monte Carlo Masters:

Streaks and Bagels: First rounds in Monte Carlo, featuring Kohlschreiber, Tsonga, Murray, Troicki and Monaco.

Sodden Balls, A Tin Sky: Haase, Wawrinka and others. And a conspicuous absence.

A Picturesque Picture: The Monte Carlo Semifinals, on a painfully windy day.

An Unmatched Achievement: Nadal wins it all. Djokovic is there, but only physically. Our yearning for meaning is, as ever, frustrated.

Thank you for reading.

Re: The Next Point - New tennis site

Hello,

Long time no update (at least here on MTF). Some new post-season posts up on The Next Point, all vaguely retrospective:

How The Life Goes On: Setting the scene, and wondering aloud at those who actually find tennis players funny.

Masters Retrospective (Part One): A damn good recap of the first four Masters 1000 events.

Masters Retrospective (Part Two): Same as above, but for the last five Masters events.

The Trimmings of Objectivity: A kind of Match of the Year article.

There Has Been Only One: After ten maiden titlists last year, this years we've had only one.

The Same New Balls: A look at the youngsters in the top 100.

The Days Of Our Youth: The first part of a look back at Juan Carlos Ferrero.

Thank you for reading.

The Next Point - Annual 2012

The Australian Open is finished, Davis Cup is underway, and the golden clouds are gathering over South America, ready to release their spray. It seems like an appropriate moment to release The Next Point Annual 2012.

Free to download, this volume includes nearly all of my articles from throughout the 2012 season, with an all new introduction.

Enjoy!
