It’s WTB’s 10th birthday! Sterling silver tennis bracelet + WTA autographs WORLDWIDE GIVEAWAY!

On this day, 10 years ago, I published my first article on Women’s Tennis Blog, about the 2007 Miami Open final between Serena Williams and Justine Henin, without any expectations and never even considering that in 2017 I would still be blogging and not to mention being a contributor at the official WTA website! I simply wanted to share my passion for tennis and fill my free time, while practicing writing. But just a few weeks into launching my webpage, when I had only a dozen readers a day on my blog, I received a link from BBC and that was the first time I amazingly realized I could be doing something good, that my articles were worth something.


What started then as just a modest online experiment has developed into the biggest blog dedicated to women’s tennis and I owe it all to you, my lovely, kind, heartfelt, encouraging and generous readers, who have motivated me to persist in publishing and kept my passion for writing alive with continued trust and support. It’s absolutely amazing that so many of you have been with me through many years, a handful of you even from my first months of blogging to this day, which I’m especially proud of!

To give back, I will award one of you with this lovely sterling silver tennis bracelet made by hand in the USA by jewelry designer Emily Austin. The adjustable bracelet, valued at $99, is adorned with handset Swarovski crystals and plated with rhodium to prevent tarnishing. Emily is yet another wonderful person I met through WTB and she’s contributed with her designs, including her famous String Blings, for many years now.

Thanks to my dear friend John Bolan, whom I met through blogging and had a pleasure to meet in person a few months ago, I have this large collection of WTA autographs and I will send an autograph of choice to FIVE lucky entrants of this giveaway.

HOW TO ENTER:

  • Step 1: Share the word about the giveaway and link back to it anywhere on social media (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, your blog, etc.)
  • Step 2: In the comments below, tell me what is it that you like the most about WTB and include the link to your shoutout from Step 1.

I will randomly choose 6 winners from all the eligible entrants. The person I draw first will win the bracelet, while the other 5 winners will pick a WTA autograph from my collection.

The contest closes on April 8th, 13:00 h Central European Time. I’m looking forward to sending prizes all over the world!

I’m wishing you all good luck! If you have any questions about the giveaway, just ask me in the comments below.

    What I really like initially with WTB is the fashion retrospection especially for Ana Ivanovic. But then I realized, there’s more in WTB. I like almost all articles and Marija keeps on giving out insider scoop and fresh tennis news about the past and current WTA stars. I hope to collaborate with you soon. I have been a loyal reader for a long time. I also hope to meet you soon in Serbia.

    First of all I would like to thank Marija for such a wonderful job on the blog. I enjoy reading all the articles.

    The one thing that keeps me coming back to the blog is the variety in the articles published. It doesn’t just cover recaps or updates on what goes on at the various tourney’s. It also has a focus on their personal lives. The best ones for me are the picks of when the players were kids.

    I have been reading the WTB since 2009 when you did a fashion retrospective on Dinara Safina. As soon as I read it I was hooked. I love that even in your busy life you have enough time to create a valuable blog about a sport that everyone loves TENNIS! Ive always looked at every story that was posted as much as I could. When my Wifi was put I couldn’t live without the blog. I hope this blog lives for infinity! BEST OF LUCK AND LOVE #WTB.

    I’d just like to note to some of you, in order to be eligible for the prize, you also have to share the word on one of your social media profiles and include the link to the share in your comment here.

    I can’t believe that this blog is turning 10! I first discovered it by accident 8 years ago and although I don’t visit as often anymore, I still like to check in when I can! One of the things I admire the most about the blog is the sheer amount of hard work that Marija consistently puts into it, especially for something that started out as just a hobby. How it has grown to be one of the best sources for women’s tennis news out there is a testament to Marija and her fellow contributors and it has come as no surprise to me. My two favourite features have to be the updates on the players love lives and of course the fashion retrospectives that we get every off-season! In general, the high quality news and features brought to the fans is second to none and I think we are so lucky to have it.
