  1. Hi George,

    I was sad not see your normal daily reporting from Tennis Fantasies this year.

    After my 18 straight years of TF and not going any longer, I had grown to vicariously enjoy TF through your writing.

    Bob, you and me both!! We are skipping this year to stay safe. Will be back next year … and bringing MY son for the first time! george
