Hi,

I recently took over the blog Tennis Chatter (http://www.tennischatter.com) and have been working on trying to deliver quality coverage of the ATP and WTA tours. I wrote posted two articles today previewing Wimbledon and the grass court season. I'd love for you guys to read them and tell me what you think, or if there is anything I need to add. I hope posting this isn't against the rules, I just want some opinions on my write up. I also plan to update everyday on match results and do player highlights from time to time. If you have any ideas for ways i can cover the tour, feel free to e-mail me.

Thanks

"Nadal has worked hard on improving his game for grass recently, however he is still a long shot to have a chance to win. He was last years runner-up, however, he is no sure thing to make it to the final this year".


Novak Djokovic (SRB)-World: 4

"The 6-2 20 year old really has a chance to make some noise on grass this year. He’s having a breakout year with two masters series wins and a Roland Garros semifinal appearance. His 5-2 record at Wimbledon is great for his age, showing he has some talent on grass".

I think you have totally different standards when you talk about Nadal and Djokovic: "Nadal was the finalist last year and he is still a long shot to have A CHANCE to win. Djokovic has a 5-2 record at Wimbledon and really has a chance to make some noise on grass this year". I respect your opinion and I´m not saying it´s not going to happen but I don´t think your opinion is based on facts.
By the way Djokovic did not win 2 Masters Series.
As for your prediction of Gonzalez reaching the final I totally disagree, I don´t think he will reach a Grand Slam final again. I hope it helped.

Djokovic does have a better chance then Nadal on grass. I will be surprised if he does not go further then Nadal this year. Who knows what would happened if they were in the same part of the draw last year even.

djokovic has a far harder time handling low,skidding shots than nadal.He has to literally sit down to hit his forehand.

Thanks for your feedback. My bad on the masters series thing, I've fixed that. Also, I wasn't saying Djokovic is going to go farther that Nadal. I just feel he can make quarterfinals or farther. And I don't think its out there to say Nadal isn't a favorite for finals. Lol, I agree that the Gonzalez predication is kind of a stretch
