    I was unable to get on the Tennisweek website this morning so I decided to call IMG who owns the website and I was informed by someone that it is no more.

    Tennis week magazine and the website operated by Richard Pagliaro was one of the most informative and best tennis sources around. If this is true I am shocked and dismayed.

    Hopefully the information I got was wrong.

    They ditched the magazine, now the website huh? I have to say it always seemed more directed to fashion rather than tennis... I can't agree it was one of the best around.

    There are some informations about the abandoning of the tennis week webside on inside tennis. Its quite a loss, regarding fine interviews and articles about or with Kramer, Trabert, Tilden and articles by Raymond Lee or Robert Geist and other tennis historians.

    The website was still excellent to the end. The magazine unfortunately became sort of a fashion magazine for tennis styles.

    There were a lot of excellent articles on the website, often written by Richard Pagliaro, the editor of the website. They had a number of excellent tennis writers and historians and you could get up to date tennis information.

    Are those articles really lost in space? Or are they still available somewhere on the internet? Thank God, that i have some on paper.

    As far as I know they are. I printed many of them and I used to have most of the ones I enjoyed on my computer but I had a computer crash a few months ago and lost virtually everything.

    Thanks, too, Eagle. Good, that those articles are not lost forever.

    Tennisweek.com is definitely gone but I was checking tennis at Fox Sports and they have the Tennisweek videos by Carrie Milbank there. Very odd.
