Having played, coached, lived, written about, breathed, hated, and loved tennis – depending on the time period – throughout my life, I finally took the advice of many of my friends who relentlessly tried to convince me to start a tennis blog.
The end result is Mertov’s Tennis Desk (MT-Desk), born in April, 2012. I found several articles that I have written in the past and gathered them here. Then, on February 15th, 2014, MT-Desk moved to its current website. Future articles will also appear here. This is my personal site and the opinions expressed are not affiliated with any media organization.
Unlike most bloggers, I do not unfortunately have the time to write very frequently, due to my “other life” (and tennis-related writing for two different publications). However, I promise to regularly update MT-Desk and never disappear!
Contact me at mertov (at) mertovstennisdesk (dot) com if you wish to be added to the “new article update” list. I promise your email will not be shared with anyone and will only be used to inform you of a new article.
Please feel free to comment in the space below each article. I always take pleasure in reading the feedback/comments whether they are positive or negative.
