    Hi Laurie,

    Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your insightful article comparing Jana Novotna and Amelie Mauresmo, and their similar paths to Wimbledon glory. I had forgotten Jana and Amelie won the WTA Championship the year prior to both winning Wimbledon.

    Are you planning any articles on Gabriela Sabatini?. I would love to see an article comparing Sabatini and Jana Novotna, who many consider the 2 best one-slam winners in womens' tennis. It's interesting how close their career accomplishments are: Jana's highest singles ranking was #2, while Sabatini reached #3. Sabatini won 27 singles titles to Jana's 24, etc. Comparing Jana and Sabatini, who would you give the edge to?.

    If you keep writing, I'll keep reading. Keep up the good work, and thank you for taking the time to read my comment.

    Best Regards,

    Hey Tribal Tech,

    I've just posted a story about the global evolution of tennis and the increasing popularity of the sport. I've put a lot of time and effort into it, and I'd be really grateful to get any feedback you have.

    Having followed tennis in a similar way to you on Eurosport back in the day, I'm sure you've noticed a lot of the same trends as I have, especially in the emergence of of Spain, France and Germany around that time.

    If you get a chance to check it out, that would be great.

    I looked into the mirror this morning and saw me upside down and tried to follow the image in reverse for a change. .
    Hope you can bear with me for once.

    You wouldn't happen to have a YouTube channel, would you?

    Thanks for pointing out what was wrong. It is difficult to meet people who do so without losing their cool (and hence credibility).
