I have recently launched a new tennis website: The Next Point
The Next Point is a site devoted entirely to in-depth analysis of men’s tennis. I’d tell you to think of it as a men’s tennis blog, but, realistically, the trick will be to get you to think of it as anything else. It does not feature daily news, rankings, or any of the stuff you can easily find elsewhere.
For myself, I'm a professional writer, including a prizewinning novelist. I've been into tennis for nearly 25 years, and used to play to a reasonably high competitive level.
The title comes from a quote by the great Rod Laver: “The next point – that’s all you must think about.” Growing up in Queensland, Australia, not far from the Rockhampton Rocket’s birthplace, Laver’s name was spoken with hushed reverence in our household.
Based on when the site was launched (nearer the end the 2010 season), the content is thus far weighted towards the top players. I realise this might be upsetting for some, but it's not my intention to continue in this way. It's just how it has worked out so far.
In any case, I hope you have a read and find The Next Point enjoyable.
