I think mainstream tennis writers/bloggers do skim these boards from time to time to keep a finger on the pulse of tennis fans so to speak.
My only request is that however inconsequential it may seem, if you find some original ideas emanating from these boards that you want to use or elaborate on more professionally, please give some passing credit to TW users. I know it seems like a funny request to credit anonymous avatars on a tennis board, but if you find it useful enough, what's the difference if it comes from Pete Bodo or Jonnny123
Thanks for the info. I'm going to try to keep up with posts here and participate when I can.
I'm sure I will elaborate on ideas I get from this board (not sure if it will be more professional however!) and I will gladly credit users here. The fans point of view is far more interesting than the journos to me anyway.
