What I am reading and an open invitation

We don’t have any results from College Station or any of the Pro Circuit events yet but I am not sure I am going to be able to get online later this evening and wanted to post a few things, including something I hope to make a regular feature.


I want to start something where I share items I am reading each day. Obviously, I am not going to list everything, but will include what I think was worthy. It should be a given that I am reading zootennis.com and tennisrecruiting.net daily, so they will likely not get daily mentions.

Here are just a few of the things I read in the last 24 hours. I think I have them in the order of what I liked. I am disappointed that the Straight Sets blog at the NY Times has been dormant for about 10 days. Most of their stuff is great.

I also started reading The Talent Code, by Daniel Coyle after it was reviewed by Colette Lewis over at zootennis and find it fascinating.

That’s about it. It was a fairly slow day.

This blog is about bringing Texas college tennis to the forefront. I am not always right about my ideas. I am also not going to say the most popular thing. I am however going to bring more publicity to kids, coaches and a game I love. This can be a dialogue and you are certainly welcome to chime in with your opinions too.

These are my opinions and have nothing to do with where I work or who I work for. If you don’t like what I say, please feel free to go elsewhere for your news or join the conversation. Thank you.
