Two steps forward, ten steps backward

OK I tried, I really did. I tried to tell myself that it was no big deal, just a bit of fun, that I really should just lighten to eff up and not make such a big deal of it. And while that is generally good advice that I generally take, I find that I am still galled by the spectacle of Pat Cash and Mats Wilander playing patty-cake tennis against Martina Hingis and Anna…See More

"I'm in agreement about Stan "the man". But how about the state of American men's tennis? Really, is this all we have? An American Karlovic and the surfer dude with no pulse? The academies have become too good. and all the players…"

Why all the crapping on Wawrinka?

I couldn’t believe the amount of crap Stanislas Wawrinka got just for taking a bathroom-break (bad pun intended). Even experienced commentators started talking about his “gamesmanship” for taking a bathroom break in the middle of the tense fifth set. I almost expected one of them to run out onto the court and threaten to ram a ball down his throat. So much…See More

The selling of sex as tennis fashion

Today’s tennis fashion offers a myriad of choices, ranging from inexperienced but earnest tennis pros seduced by the glamor implied in having their names attached to a clothing line, to established professionals who actually know what they are doing. The result is a particularly confusing market.But the one thing that the tennis fashion market seems to agree on…See More

Delusions of gender on the tennis court

I’ve been perplexed by the scathing criticism that John McEnroe has received for stating that the women’s tennis season is too long. To be fair, what he allegedly said was, “There should be less events for women. You need an actual meltdown on court or someone to quit the game altogether before they realize you need to change the schedule.” And for…See More

"ha ha. i like that. BBBT. and maybe you're right. maybe the sisters are in a class by themselves and i need to adjust down my expectations."

Jazz Burks commented on tennischick's blog post 'Big Babe Tennis vs. Hitting the Ball Hard'
"After reading this and pull her wide and the point is over blog, I really believe that Sharapova is big babe tennis. Just as Lindsay was BBT. What the Williams sisters brought may be something we never see again. Most girls who have the stature to…"

Which wife of a tennis pro may be cheating?

I didn’t start the rumor. I’m only repeating it. I read it today on dlisted.com which copied it from a gossip blog called “Crazy Days and Nights” that specializes in sending out vaguely-worded clues about celebrity hook-ups. A recent entry speculates about the wife of a tennis pro…See More

As a would-be fashionista, I find that I have been developing a growing appreciation of good tennis fashion. For me the best tennis outfits are put out by designers who understand how to combine form and

function, who are talented enough to fuse performance with style, who are creative enough to develop… Continue

Hey TC, Check out this helpful info about copyright - crazy story, but it is all true. Let me know if you need any help working the Flickr pics with Creative Commons. Apparently, it can be a sticky situation so be careful out there!

Hi tennischick!
We just featured you as a "Popular Blogger" in the right column of every page! This should get you some more looks.

I have a suggestion: can you include the photo BEFORE the text in your blog posts, then the photo shows up on the main page and it keeps our main page fresh plus should get you, yet again, more looks.

c ya!
