Why Tennis Shouldn’t Be in the Olympics

Rio Tennis 2016

Yesterday I tweeted that Tennis shouldn’t be in the Olympics. It was met with disagreement with many believing the Olympics is as big if not bigger than a Grand Slam. Unfortunately I think if you believe that you’ve bought into what the media write and what the modern players put out there as part of their PR fluff. As with …

Roger Federer’s Outfit for Cincinnati 2016

Federer Cincinnati Outfit 2016

I had this post scheduled before Federer made the unfortunate announcement he wouldn’t be playing again in 2016 so I thought I’d still publish it.

It is an erudite and wide-ranging text (and I strongly recommend it – and its sister text, ‘Science as a Vocation’ – …

Our Hearts Might Be Broken… But I Know We Will Survive…

Alex Poem Wimbledon 2016

Every Federer match is a real emotional roller coaster for me. Whether I am alone or with family or friends, at home or at work, I shout, I fist pump, I cry and I laugh without restraint. I am totally and completely into it that when he wins I am euphoric and when he loses… well, I become a real …
