RG Crisis Center, Day 9

by: Peter Bodo June 04, 2012

PicMornin'. I'm a little late to the game today, and yesterday's Crisis Center thread is beginning to creak beneath the weight of all those comments. So here's a new one. As Brian Baker well knows, "It's never too late to a fresh start."

I was up early watching Nicolas Almagro, on whom I'll be posting on shortly. Meanwhile, I have some interestng news for you. If you've spent any time here in the past year or two, you know that WTA expert Bobby Chintapalli is a frequent contributor to TennisWorld -- as well as TENNIS magazine and our general dot.com site. She's covered WTA events, conducted interviews, all that jazz. 

Well, Bobby recently started her own Tumblr weblog. It's called "A Number a Day" and delivers exactly what that title promises. It's a quick, fun, informative read, and the site looks really stylish -- just what you'd expect from Bobby. So all you WTA fans ought to get over there to check it out. Good luck with it, Bobby, and don't forget about us! 

Enjoy the tennis, I'll be back later with a "They Said What?" post. And how about this picture of Maria Sharapova? I like it. Kind of unusual angle/moment.
