It’s here folks! The moment you’ve all been waiting for. The first issue of tennishead magazine has officially hit stores across the nation with an almighty thump.

Following the success of our three glossy magbooks last year, we lovely people at tennishead have released the first of six magazines due for 2010 in a format that packs the same punch, but graces your palms TWICE as often.

Shop shelves are bowing perilously under the weight of our 148-page May edition – bursting with high-quality features, comment, news, reviews and all the results from the ATP and WTA tours.

Our four weighty features analyse Federer’s chances of a claiming a remarkable calendar slam, Spain’s Davis Cup dynasty, what’s next for the WTA tour and the fragile dynamic between child and the tennis-mad parent.

Andy Roddick talks about his signature stick in our ‘me and my racket’ feature, while Andy Murray’s conditioning coach Jez Green tells us how Olympic lifting can benefit your game.

That’s not all. We’ve had a ball testing 44 of the latest rackets on the market and the comprehensive results can be found in our definitive buyer’s guide, while our expert Academy section is brimming with detailed step by step sequentials that will have you pumping inside out forehands like Fed quicker than you can say Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova.

So waddaya waiting for? UK residents can pick up a copy at WHSmith, Fitco outlets, PWP, and all good (and some not so good) newsagents, or call 0845 459 7148 before May 5 to take out a subscription for just £20 and get a FREE poster of Federer, Nadal, Murray or Laura Robson!

Aren’t we nice?
