Hey everybody,

My name's Rowan, I'm a tennis fan from Auckland. I'll be going to the WTA and ATP events we have in January, and I've decided to have a go at keeping a blog about what I see. I'm always interested in having a closer look at some of the smaller international tournaments that are held throughout the year, so hopefully others will be too. It's going to be a lot of fun for me anyway.

I'm calling the blog Yellowballin', because tennis balls are yellow (kinda), and ballin' is something that WWE's United States Champion Montel Vontavious Porter (MVP to his intimates) always says. It's cool, trust me.

The action isn't going to kick off until the ASB Classic begins on Monday the 31st of December, but stay tuned, the blog will get underway in earnest real soon.


Photo op! Here's 2007's respective ASB Classic and Heineken Open champions Jelena Jankovic and David Ferrer, in matching purple and white even. They've both had pretty good seasons huh? Go the Auckland champs.
