Hello and welcome to my tennis blog.
I'm 21 years old and have taken a very active interest in predominantly men's tennis in the past couple of years and so decided to try out blogging to share my thoughts and views with tennis fans globally.
About My Blog
I have a few different ideas about what to upload to this site, including match previews and analysis, player spotlight pieces, along with my own opinions and predictions to name but a few. At first I'll see how it goes, what goes down well and what I enjoy writing about. As this is my first attempt at this sort of thing I hope to build up a head of steam after a few weeks and hopefully keep it updated regularly throughout the summer and beyond.
Hopefully, I'll be able to provide readers with some worthwhile content. I'll try and get a post on the Rome Masters written up before the end of the week so for now, thank you for reading and I hope you'll visit my blog again.
