Neil A. Hickey is the Bleacher Report’s correspondent for the Asia Pacific, which is to say if it’s a sport you know nothing about, he knows everything about it. A native Australian where he now resides, Neil’s love of baseball and hockey were sowed and reaped while growing up in Toronto and while undertaking a cadetship at a newspaper near Vancouver. He lives in vain for the Blue Jays to return to the postseason before his copies of the 92 and 93 World Series become unusable. Aside from the Blue Crew, as an alien contributor, his articles promise to be bereft of any bias as well as bereft of any insight, wit or gravitas.

    Hey Neil—Max Tcheyan here, a Bleacher Report Community Coordinator.

    I've been spending time on our Tennis page and read a couple of your old articles. Really on-point do good work.

    Given that you haven't written in a while, I thought I'd check in and see if you're interested in picking up your coverage again. What do you say?

    If not, it would be great if you could give me some feedback on why you decided to stop writing and what we could have done to better serve you. If you wouldn't mind, please shoot me a line at with any thoughts.

    Thanks so much,

    Hey Neil A.,

    I just wanted to let you know that Bleacher Report has launched out of beta with an updated look and feel and some great new features. Check out the "Game On" link in the header to find out more.

    Next week we'll be launching the site to the world with some public announcements—and it'd be great to get a contribution from you between now and Tuesday to make Bleacher Report's launch a success.

    Let me know if you need any help with ideas or have questions. Have a great weekend Neil A.!

    Hey Neil,

    Great coverage on the Aussie Open. I just wish I could stay up until 3 a.m. every morning and write about the matches. Mad props! Keep up the great work!

    Don't tell me the sleep deprivation finally conquered you and you missed Federer vs. Djokovic! The downfall of Roger the Great is officially in full swing. He's losing a step, and Djokovic and Nadal aren't going anywhere anytime soon. The loss yesterday came as a surprise to many who don't follow the game too closely, but to me it's been a long time coming. Federer's prime is over, and I think if he doesn't take both Wimbledon and the US Open this year it'll be a real struggle to eclipse Sampras' career slam record. Not to say Roger's completely done, obviously he's not. But I think Federer as we know him is done. The career slams record was considered by many to be inevitable, I'm not so sure anymore. Nadal is obviously dominant on clay, pretty good on grass and getting better on hardcourt. Djokovic has a great all-court game, he's been in the semis in each of the last four majors. More importantly, they're 20 years old and Fed's turning 27. As much as it pains me to admit it, we may have seen Novak Djokovic representing the next era of men's tennis last night, accepting the torch from Roger Federer.
