I am a graduate of the University of Michigan, where I studied in the English Department and received the Specialization in Writing distinction. I have long played tennis at various competitive levels, and am excited to be a Featured Columnist for Bleacher Report which allows me to cover the sport I love.

My writing has appeared in academic journals, conference presentations, and books. Most recently my book "Papers for Pay: Confessions of an Academic Forger" (McFarland & Co., 2015) was released.

    Good afternoon Chris,

    Thank you for contacting me regarding publishing "The 5 Most Important Statistics in Women's Tennis" in your magazine. It sounds like an exciting opportunity. Please feel free to use this article.

    Let me know if there are any other reprints you would like to use, or if there arises the chance to provide you with an original piece. Also, I would love to get the location that I could access your magazine, along with the date you use my piece so that I can enjoy Tennis and Fitness Magazine and spread the word.

    Subject: Permission to publish your article on our Magazine

    Hi Jeffrey Ruth

    I loved reading your article on "The 5 Most Important Statistics in Women's Tennis" on your blog at ""

    I am about to publish a new magazine called “Tennis and Fitness”
    exclusively on the Apple Newsstand and I think the readers of the magazine
    would love to read this article too.

    I was wondering if I could reprint that article in the magazine. If you would
    like me to promote something for you, maybe a book or a specific web page you want me to point people to I would be more than happy to do it. Because it is an interactive magazine, once people have read the article they can be directed straight to a web page of your choice.

    I hope to hear back from you soon

    Kind Regards,

    Chris Esprit

    Jeffrey, not sure if you received my message back on July 10 about your Federer article and its hot read. This was a while ago, ha, but I just checked my inbox and it makes it look like I didn't send a reply. I know I wrote you back, but maybe it didn't go through. If it didn't, then this is me nearly a month later congratulating you and hoping to see some more of your writing in the future! Keep it up!
