Tennishead mag: Sept issue in shops NOW
Originally published on: 04/08/11 12:24
Tennis, like a Novak Djokovic return, is all about timing. We cottoned on to this a while back – about the same time as our groundies stopped flying over the back fence, actually – and we’re right on cue with our latest offering. On shelves nationwide just as the US Open series prepares to kick into full swing, the September issue of tennishead magazine is ready for your digestion NOW.
Of course, we could rant, rave, hop on our desks and holler from the windows about how good this issue is (ed. get off that ledge…), but how about we let the content do the talking, eh?
In this jam-packed issue, Novak Djokovic steals the show on the cover after fulfilling two of his lifelong ambitions on the grass of SW19 this summer, while editor Lee Goodall profiles another man who hit new heights at Wimbledon, fan-favourite Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. We also talk exclusively to recently inducted Hall-of-famer Andre Agassi, sit down with Serbia’s Viktor Troicki, and chew the fat with the incredibly entertaining Bethanie Mattek-Sands.
Elsewhere, Paul Newman, tennis correspondent of the Independent, studies what the future might hold for French Open champ Li Na, while tennishead’s Jamie Renton analyses how the giants of the ATP Tour have evolved to bring plenty more to court than a booming serve.
We’ve also gone to town on junior tennis, speaking to a number of bright young starlets hoping to break into the big time, while we give you the lowdown on junior frames in our gear section. Of course, we’ve also got the usual academy section with top tips from the experts and a fit-to-burst-15-page results section, featuring all the results from Roland Garros and Wimbledon.
If that wasn’t enough – you’ve really hit the jackpot if you snare a copy of this issue – we also speak to Serbia’s multi-Grand Slam champion Nenad Zimonjic about his new partnership with Michael Llodra and Russia’s Maria Kirilenko about her Yonex racket, while the charismatic Boris Becker recounts his memories of bagging his first US Open title in 1989.
How’s that for love?
