Gosh it's becoming a thing now to announce and showcase your "kit" right before the start of an Open. Let's see Maria, Roger, Nadal, Serena, Venus they're all doing it!
Well, I guess there's a new kind on the fashion block. Welcome: Preppy Murray

5 hours on court is not easy on you? Isn't that what you do all day anyway, remember, your job?
What a slouch!
Dear Ms. Allaster,
I want to thank you for trusting my marketing know-how, and hiring me as your new PR guru. I just know that we are going to get along famously.
I have checked my schedule, and I am indeed available for our once-a-month check-in meetings. We will discuss our marketing plan, and ensure that we are staying on point (but remaining flexible) in our ultimate goal of surpassing those silly boys over at the ATP.
To give you an example of my awesome marketing skills, let's get straight to the first topic of discussion:
What the f*** is up with that hair?
In order to consistently convey a message of hippness, you simply cannot (and I repeat), you cannot walk around with hair like that!
See, I'm amazing!
Look she can do it:
And so can you!
See you next month,
Your Marketing PR Guru
There's a great article on Tennis the magazine about the rising volume of players on the tour. Which got me thinking about the rising volume of tennis spectators these days.
How do you feel about this issue? Make sure to vote and let others know how tennis should be experienced.
There's a lot of articles online about the loudness of High school matches, college team matches, recreational tennis matches and matches at the professional level where the fans have affected the result.
Tennis as you all know, should be a Gentleman's game, but the game has been evolving over the years as players at every level and their fans get louder and louder.
So what's the call?

Oh... yah, in case you didn't know, Andy Murray is the new No.2. Unfortunately for him, he's got to defend 1,000pts this week in Cincinnati where he's got a tough Draw.
So maybe Rafa will be back to No.2 by the weekend. Sounds like musical chairs. The weakest link Gilles Simon, No.9, is about to be left out.

02 Andy Murray
