Re: August on Sports - My sports blog, including tennis

As you may have seen, I wrote last week week about how commercialism has changed racing in F1. This time I've written about how commercialism has changed the game of tennis.

Re: August on Sports - My sports blog, including tennis

Indirectly related to tennis, but tennis is an Olympic sport.

My view on 2020 Summer Olympics bids:

http://augustonsports.blogspot.fi/20...pics-bids.html

There are e.g. my views on which would be the best place for the Olympic tennis and also about the Fuentes case as Spain is one of the bidding nations.

Re: August on Sports - My sports blog, including tennis

Nice read, I hadn't paid much attention to the 2020 Olympic bids so it was a useful summary! If I had one comment to make I would say the text is quite long and if it was broken up into sub headings e.g. venues, country infrastructure, politics etc it would be an easier read. Great stuff, keep it up

The text just became longer than I expected, I really should've put some subheadings.

Re: August on Sports - My sports blog, including tennis

Interesting matches like Fed-Tsonga and Nole-Stan made me write some unbiased tennis analysis to my blog:

Re: August on Sports - My sports blog, including tennis

What next for Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer?

http://augustonsports.blogspot.de/20...and-roger.html

If that were written by Simon Reed, Federer would beat Djokovic in the US Open final.
