Featured Columnist III for B/R and 20-times awarded as month's top tennis writer.
I have been a writer for over a decade and part-time freelance sports columnist. Articles have been featured in numerous media outlets including World Sports Magazine, CNN, and Tennis and Fitness Magazine through Apple's digital subscription.
I love to capture portraits of great athletes in those special or transitional moments, whether glorious or painful. I will occasionally experiment with ideas and various tones.
Anyone is welcome to follow me on Twitter or check in as you wish.
Thanks Jeremy. The only reason why I suggested RG to move a week earlier was because Wimbledon did its part to accommodate an extra week; why not them?
But the proposal has been made public here. Hope Ion Tiriac can see this !
Hey Jeremy. This is a topic that you wrote about last year. It was about expanding the grass court season. The addition of an extra week has definitely increased the value of the grass season but still the total number of points being offered is quite less (~4000). I have been reading in many places about adding a grass masters tournament but no one gave a feasible solution there. I have a thought and I felt I could share it with you. The Madrid masters is one tournament whose clay surface plays differently to Monte Carlo, Rome and Roland Garros. This I hear is because of the thin air in the Madrid region because of its altitude. Considering that Madrid's surface has been shifted quite a few times in its history, why not make Madrid Masters a grass tournament and slot it within the grass season? Move Rome, Geneva, Nice and Roland Garros a week earlier to accommodate this. My reasoning is that the conditions should favour a quick grass surface and instead of upgrading an existing ATP500 to an ATP1000, we already have an ATP1000 status here and that should not be a problem, Mallorca is going to host a grass tournament and so Spain is not necessarily bad to host grass and finally we will also get a decent balance between ATP1000 in clay (2) and in grass (1). What do you think ?
Sorry, not Julia Goerges, I was thinking Camila Giorgi.
Jeremy, Halep, Radwanska, Wozniacki, all lost early. Julia Goerges, a well known ballbasher prevailed. Do you think without power women can't win at all now? Sharapova, Serena, Kvitova, all are hardhitters. Kvitova is worst, with no plans if she play bad. And they are current slam holders.
Go write for tennis.com, they have a better website, but the writing isn't as good as yours.
Thanks Jeremy. I wonder what the motivation of the organisers would have been. I think hard courts provide the most chances of having the top players in the tournament till the very end. They might have feared a non-slam winners final?
Hi Jeremy, just read that Rio Olympics tennis next year will be on HC. This changes the odds for the big four drastically. What is your thought on this?
I just want to say your writting about tennis is great. Keep it up.
Sure. I just think it would be very interesting this year, when we can finally say, new players can win masters 1000. Those retro articles were very good btw, especially for most of us, who don't know much before 2000s.
Last year you posted an article on 2014 winners on masters 1000 after Australian Open. Do you plan to do that this year as well, considering there is deeper field this year than last year.
