Tenaciously Tennis


Welcome to Tenaciously Tennis, a blog dedicated to following the ATP and WTA tours along with capturing the tenacity of the sport through reporting, analysis, and commentary.

Tenaciously Tennis seeks to seamlessly combine these three aspects of writing to directly enhance reader enjoyment. Comments and suggestions are always welcome. Please send all ideas via e-mail here.

The Blog’s Inspiration by Definition:

ten-nis, n. a game played on a rectangular court by two players or two pairs of players equipped with rackets, in which a ball is driven back and forth over a low net that divides the court in half.

te-na-cious, adj. 1. holding fast; characterized by keeping a firm hold. 2. highly retentive. 3. pertinacious, persistent, stubborn, or obstinate.

You get the idea.
