My First ‘Short Balls’ Post for Tennis Served Fresh
After writing for the popular tennis blog Tennis Served Fresh during the Australian Open, I was asked to contribute on a more regular basis. As such, I am now responsible for writing Short Balls, a weekly reflection of the goings-on in the tennis world. Read below for an excerpt of my first post.

I don’t care.” | Watch the drama
