Today I am going on a two-week vacation in Thailand! Unfortunately, I will miss all the tournaments leading up to the Australian Open, but I will come back just in time for the first Grand Slam of the season.
Women's Tennis Blog will be alive while I'm away. I've prepared some articles in advance. There will not be updates on the tournaments in Australia, but I've made two series of articles:
1) photos of tennis players and their mothers – I thought it would be nice to draw some attention to the mothers of WTA stars, who are undoubtedly behind a great portion of the success of their daughters,
2) reviews of players' official websites – websites are an important possession of all public figures nowadays, so let's see how successful some WTA players are in creating their online presence.
There will also be a couple of guest posts, from a former sports writer and tennis junkie, Merlisa, and our great contributor, John Bolan.
And of course, Happy New Year everyone! Thank you for being such a great support for Women's Tennis Blog, I can't thank you enough! I hope that 2011 will be another great year for tennis and for our little community here.
By the way, I will celebrate the New Year's Eve in an airplane haha. At midnight I will be somewhere above Europe, according to my calculation.
See you in 2011!
Looking forward to an awesome and sunny Australian Open!
