The ball has not been dropped

There's plenty of Van Sias-written material out there in the ether!

So I missed the Australian Open on TTA?, but it was for an OK cause: I wrote something for the website AskMen.com and I've also been writing more for Tennis View Magazine's website. I am kind of kicking myself for not doing my usual, exclusive, guaranteed-on-point, always-entertaining predictions from the Round of 16 on, where I've been batting .750 on my men's picks as of late. (The women, about .500 or—gulp—worse.)

But I'll 'fess up and say that my winner picks that were bandying about in my head didn't exactly pan out: I had Andy Murray and Serena Williams all the way, without a doubt. Obviously, the world number ones, Novak Djokovic and Victoria Azarenka had other plans.

Anyway, all of them aside, let's talk about Tennis Talk, Anyone?: I've missed it—and you, too! I'm going to announce an ambitious plan where between the other sites I write for, and my other blog (The Doubles Alley), I intend to do something on at least one a night, on a rotational basis. I have to hit the Alley tomorrow, then something else the next day and maybe something else after that before I return to TTA?, if not sooner.

I could never let things get too lax: This is the grandfather of them all (and my baby, too!)
