My fellow tennis fans, in the spirit of the election season, I am finally ready to admit that I have been defeated. It's been a long and well-fought battle in the blogging realm, but I have come to accept the evidence that has been recently proved time and time again across a variety of different locations: Dinara Safina is a legitimate tennis player and therefore should be endorsed by Tennis Talk, Anyone? as the favorite for the French Open title.
After thoroughly dismantling Svetlana Kuznetsova to set up a final with the new number-1 player on the WTA tour, Ana Ivanovic, this blog has decided to put its weight behind Dinara Safina going forward and encourages others to do the same. We must be unified in our support of this worthy champion who has consistently showed her mettle and determination over the course of the past two weeks.
An old friend of mine and I used to talk tennis for hours, whether it was our own games or what was happening in the pros. I've started Tennis Talk, Anyone? to, well, talk tennis with an even broader crowd! My name is Van Sias and I've been playing for 20 years now, and not only am I player, I'm a huge fan of the game as well: pro, amateur, you name it. I'll post links to news items related to the sport, and offer my own personal opinion, predictions and hopefully get some of yours as well.
