Where I've Been

That deep blue on beneath the horizon is the Sea of Cortez

First off, it's immensely flattering that I've had a few people ask me where I've (or more to the point, Blackabel Tennis) been has over the past year or so.  To quote Serena Williams, it all comes down to this thing called "life."

Let me be clear, there's been nothing horrific that's happened, thank every potential higher power ( a guy's gotta hedge his bets, no?); but I do have different demands on my time than I did when I opened this space. That's left my blog silent more often than not as of late.  I'm still annoying people on Twitter, @VitoEllison and staying in close contact with the game.  I've dropped a few more newsy pieces at Tennis Panorama over the last few months in service to my friend Karen Pestaina's constantly up-to-the-minute. That said, I haven't often been in the headspace to do the kind of writing and analysis that I've typically done at Blacklabel Tennis and certainly not on the day-in, day-out, week-in, week-out manner that a tennis site requires given the calendar.

Over the last few months, I've been thinking about how (or if) I wanted to cover tennis in the future.  The short answer is that I do, but don't expect breathless recaps of the Baku second round. As of now, the plan is that I'll pop in from time to time and give you my thoughts on players, events and the tennis world in general as they arise.  Hopefully, it'll be a welcome respite from the daily bloviating of the people trolling for clicks on a daily basis.  I'll also let you know first if and when I make a call on a true change of pace going forward.

There may be something else going up early tomorrow based on a conversation that's been unfolding on Twitter over the last couple of days, keep your eyes peeled if you're into that sort of thing.
