I am a graduate of the University of Michigan, where I studied in the English Department and received the Specialization in Writing distinction. I have long played tennis at various competitive levels, and am excited to be a Featured Columnist for Bleacher Report which allows me to cover the sport I love.
My writing has appeared in academic journals, conference presentations, and most recently an essay of mine with a metaphysical take on the Tour de France was published in the book "What is a Meaningful Life" edited by Jim Meuninck.
My strongest supporters are my wife Victoria, our five children, two goats, six chickens, three cats, etc.!

Subject: Permission to publish your article on our Magazine
Hi Jeffrey Ruth
I loved reading your article on "The 5 Most Important Statistics in Women's Tennis" on your blog at "http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1733332-the-five-most-important-statistics-in-womens-tennis"
I am about to publish a new magazine called “Tennis and Fitness”
exclusively on the Apple Newsstand and I think the readers of the magazine
would love to read this article too.
I was wondering if I could reprint that article in the magazine. If you would
like me to promote something for you, maybe a book or a specific web page you want me to point people to I would be more than happy to do it. Because it is an interactive magazine, once people have read the article they can be directed straight to a web page of your choice.
I hope to hear back from you soon
Jeffrey, not sure if you received my message back on July 10 about your Federer article and its hot read. This was a while ago, ha, but I just checked my inbox and it makes it look like I didn't send a reply. I know I wrote you back, but maybe it didn't go through. If it didn't, then this is me nearly a month later congratulating you and hoping to see some more of your writing in the future! Keep it up!
