I'm a die-hard tennis fanatic who started the tennis blog Down the Line!

Power to all the new media-heads out there!

Pretty damn good.

I'm new to this website, I live in Brooklyn Heights and I'm looking for people to play with. I would say I'm between "Not bad" and "Good".
Let me know if you are interested.

I think you and Svetlana should take your web pages to the tennis channel, You 2 could host sort of an entertainment tonie like show for tennis fans, Lord knows they need new shows on TTC, You could even have call ins, with all the infro you guys get you could easily fill an hour a week. Wander if anyone knows anyone at TTC, so I can get in touch and suggest it. I'm sure it'll be a hit and you two will be stars. What do you think.

Hello, Rich,
I'm impressed with your page here, too. And thanx for all you do to promote tennis, and make it fun and sexy, well, you know, all the pix of my Ruffie. But then, that's why you're on the leading edge of the tennis information age. I think I'm gonna like it here. Thanx for takin' a chance on me..xoxo
