... I just have to give a quick shout-out about last weekend's Fed Cup action. I'm a Davis Cup fan, but I've never really been sold on its WTA counterpart (blah, blah, blah—you've heard that line from me before, I'm sure). But after the semifinal ties, consider me all in!
So congrats to Italy and the U.S.! Sorry I'm just now mentioning it, I was out of town for a bit and been kind of busy this week, but I didn't think I could discuss anything else before acknowledging those great efforts!
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.
