Checking In: Early YC

by: Peter Bodo May 19, 2009

Smallyourcall_5 Hi, everyone. I'm posting tomorrow (Tuesday's) Your Call now, just in case any of you were wondering if I'd have a red-meat post on the momentous events in Madrid. I've been working on one, but won't be able to finish it today. Look for it to appear tomorrow. I did manage to get a post done on the Madrid men's final for ESPN - you can read that here and take it as a table-setter for the analysis that will appear here here tomorrow.

The countdown to Roland Garros is already underway, and we'll have men's and women's previews posted at by the end of the week. I'm going to Paris, but just for Week 2. Abby Lorge will be there for during week 1, and you'll have Crisis Center and red-meat posts here until I leave for France on Saturday. I'm sure Steve Tignor will be weighing in on the wind-up of the clay-court season as well for the duration of the French Open. We'll also have Rosangel posting a photo gallery from her visit to Wimbledon over the weekend, so watch this space for more on that. The Deuce Club this week will feature a special on-site report from a member of the Twibe who was lucky enough to spend pretty much the entire week at the Estoril Open. So we're ramping up to Roland Garros nicely.

This will be the Your Call thread for Tuesday, so feel free to talk about whatever is going on during this relatively quiet week preceding the year's second Grand Slam event. Please stay on-topic until most of the Tuesday tennis action is concluded. Be back with you later. . .

- Pete
