First, I want to thank everyone for a great 2015. Tennis Abides was founded in September 2011, and this is already the second best year in terms of visitors for the site. 2015 is not even 50% done. This will easily be our best year ever. My twitter follows have also risen by quite a bit @danmartintennis.
Second, I took most of this week off due to the two weeks of Roland Garros falling so closely on the tail of Madrid and Rome. I have a wife, three children, and a dissertation to finish so a little down time was good for me heading into the grass season.
Third, I’d like to add more video commentary, more interviews, product reviews, and more playing tips. These pieces generally take me more time to create than predictions. My dissertation may mandate not adding as many of these as I would like in the coming months, but my dissertation will be done in December. Stick with me as this site is not done growing. I look forward to spending some time at the Cincinnati event, but Lexington, KY has a challenger the week before Cincinnati. Next year, Louisville is adding a WTA event. i should be covering 3 professional tournaments by the end of 2016.
