So, how about that Wimbledon? You had Petra Kvitova almost coming from nowhere to take the women's title, the Bryan brothers winning an 11th Major, Katarina Srebotnik finally winning a doubles Slam, the return of Venus and Serena Williams, unseeded players making deep runs--you name it.
And oh yeah, there was that Novak Djokovic fellow continuing his dream season by grabbing the men's crown.
I was just looking through the annals of this here blog, and I realized I haven't given Djokovic the attention he deserves. I don't know why: Maybe I feel if I write something, I'll jinx him. (I'm a superstitious fellow: You should see me with the New York Jets!
Regardless, I apologize because what he's done so far this year has been one of the most amazing tennis things I've seen in my lifetime. I apologize for the negligence on my part.
To make it up, I'm changing the name of this blog to "Novak Djokovic Talk, Anyone?" Just kidding of course, but the dude does deserve all the acclaim and coverage he's gotten so far, which will hopefully continue during his great run.
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.
