I first became really aware of this game called tennis after watching the young prodigy, Boris Becker, storm through the field at Wimbledon and win his first title at this most prestigious event. I was fours years shy of breaking into my teenage period at the time, and Becker's exploits against stronger and more mature opposition inspired me to begin learning this sport.

I'm a solid player at the club level, and enjoy writing both poetry and prose.

At the moment, it would seem that I'm Roger Federer's biggest critic! But hopefully that will change in the near future.

    Hey Sam,

    I've just posted a story about the global evolution of tennis and the increasing popularity of the sport. I've put a lot of time and effort into it, and I'd be really grateful to get any feedback you have.

    If you get a chance to check it out, that would be great.

    "Solid player at the club level"?? HA! Now, I get it.

    You must be an embarrassment to your family.

    You are uninformed, pathetic and jealous of Federer and you just don't appreciate his greatness. You need to be fired.

    "You made me realize that my last article was a mistake. I pulled it.

    No problem. I wouldn't say it was a mistake. it was your opinion, and no opinion is a mistake, unless you want to kill or beat up someone. LOL

    Believe me, everything you say about federer has a grain of truth. You could say he's a straight talker or playing mind game and making excuses, and both versions would be believable. I was just making a point that nadal camp is probably doing the same, and if Murray starts winning some Slams, he'll do it too, and it's not any different than corporations trying to gain competitive advantage over rivals.

    Hey Sam, I thought you'd be interested in checking out my in-depth piece on the women's draw at the Australian Open.

    It's a tiny bit late as it took longer than expected to write it, but my review of 2009 is finally here! Last year's one won the AOTD award and hopefully I've done enough on this one to equal that feat, but I'll leave you to be the judge of that!

    With 25 great moments from 12 different sports, and with everyone from Barcelona to France, the Yankees to the Lakers, and Usain Bolt to Tiger Woods there is something for everyone in this slideshow, plus a ranked top ten as the final slide!

    If you get a chance would you mind checking it out? Cheers!
