Mertov’s T-Desk Update

Following a summer filled with tennis and live reporting from the several major tournaments, my “other life” related obligations are taking priority for now. There will not be any MT-Desk articles posted for a little while. I don’t believe in writing articles in a hurry and shortchanging my readers.

If you are on the mailing list, I will let you know as soon as the next article comes out. If not, please feel free to email me at tennisdesk at operamail dot com and I will add you to the list (nobody will have it but me).

However, MT-Desk will remain active on Twitter during this time for live commentary, especially throughout the U.S. Open!

In fact, there is a question that I posted on Twitter that I would love for any tennis follower to answer if you find the time (and feel free to share):
“Who will be ranked top 2 (M & W) at the end of 2019 USOpen? I will store the answers. Curious on what tennis fans foresee 4 years from now. Thanks!”

Feel free to answer below in the “Reply” section. We can always have fun with it four years from now :). Yes, I will keep them!

Here is the full list of those who dared to put themselves on the spot 🙂 First, thank you to these courageous people, and see you in 4 years 🙂

  1. 1) A. Zverev , 2) B. Coric based on that match we saw at Cincy.

    ladies, like the weather, are completely unpredictable so far ahead.
