Image may contain: 2 people, outdoor
By Aaron
We have been fortunate as a family to travel to many tournaments outside of our home base of New York. We have been to the French Open, Indian Wells, Miami, Newport, Madrid,  Monte Carlo and Montreal. With that said we found Rome to be our favorite destination for a tennis expedition.

Who Are The Most Annoying Players?

By Dan Markowitz My first nominee for "The most Annoying Player" is Caroline Wozniaki aka The Woz. I don't know, I just find her tremendously annoying. Maybe I could come up with a better description for her? When she came on the scene she seemed to be cool, and there's still a cool part about her, I mean she's got an apartment in NYC, her fiancee is David Lee. That's kind of cool. She looks great in a bikini. Still, why do I find her so...annoying? Continue to read full article...

Which players do the pros cheer for?

About ten years ago I got the idea to ask several WTA and ATP players at the US Open who would they cheer for if they were not in the tournament? Who would they like to see win? Here are the interesting results of the unofficial poll. Should I do another one of these at Miami Open? Danai Udomchoke: "I could imagine the picture of Roger Federer capturing the trophy, I want him to make the record. I want him to win the French Open also. He's a good guy. He's a very good guy. (You know him a long time?) Yes. Because we are same age and then we play junior together. Once I play him, but in doubles, when we were like 16 or 17. He won. He's a very nice guy. He talk to everyone and he remember everyone." Continue to read full article...
