Bob just uploaded this on his twitter account!
Hi everyone. I know that most internet users run willy-nilly copying great photos and pasting them to their favorite websites (Tennisopolis included.) I couldn't imagine how many illegally duplicated photos are on Facebook alone. Not to mention all the illegal vids on YouTube. Nonetheless, it is not allowed. Unless you have been given permission by the author of a photo (some people call them photographers, but in the world of copyright law "author"… Continue
Looks like we'll need to be changing out the first image on the Main page. We've been boasting that we have enough members in Tennisopolis to fill Centre Court (at Wimbledon of course) which can fit about 15,000 fans. But in a few weeks we'll surpass the capacity of the largest tennis stadium in the world, Arthur Ashe. Ashe can hold 23,200 fans. Right now, Tennisopolis just broke through the 22,000… Continue

Well, OK - we cheated. We couldn't find a pic of both babies today, so we just photoshopped this one. How did you figure it out? We think this is Charlene Riva rather than Myla Rose. But can I just stop and say, "Charlene?!?" really?... Charlene?

It can't happen and it won't happen. Nadal's legs are breaking down and he simply needs a rest. If he can't dominate on the red clay of Paris, there is no way he can win 7 straight on the green grass of Wimbledon. Besides, he just lost to Leyton Hewitt! 6-4,6-3. Uncle Tony thinks Rafa should hop on a plane and head back home. i.e SKIP WIMBLEDON. Exact quote: "If… Continue

Do you want to make a little side cash while you are watching TV? The Passive Dad blog posted this great article about stringing rackets for dough.
Couldn't you just see Andy joking with the crowd at a charity auction, and saying that for the "right price" he's give the lessons on the auction block in the buff? That's so Andy. But when the woman who won pressed him, even Andy had to backtrack.

I was there, in the danger zone. The place: Albuquerque, NM in The Pit. The occasion: Pete Sampras vs. Sam Querry. The court was too small and both players were returning closer in than they were comfortable. The fans were close and where i was, center behind the baseline, we were all ducking for cover the entire match. We learned to pay attention and not take pictures while the player was serving toward us. A little old lady 2 rows in front of me got… Continue
I'm not normally one for tennis gadgets and "get great quick" schemes, so I'm always a bit skeptical of any tennis gear that Jack Kramer himself wouldn't use. You can call me a traditionalist. So, when the guys at ProTrainer Tennis asked me to demo their new… Continue
