Travel Day

Getting up at 4:30 a.m. New York time means that I'm up at 1:30 Seattle time. If my math is correct, I've been up almost 21 hours pardon any fractured sentences or misspelled words.

Travel days always take the wind out of you, but I find it also kick starts your body in a certain way. The excitement of being in a new place - even if it is a familiar one - always gets my blood bumping.

I've been trying to keep my head about the aftermath of the Ethicist column that ran in Sunday's NYT. I certainly didn't anticipate such reaction, but have also learned a great deal through the process. And what is life without character-building learning experiences? I will say this over and over again: TENNIS Magazine is a clean, professional and dignified publication - both online and in print. No ifs, ands or buts about it. I wrote that letter months ago, and the editor in question has since left for unrelated resasons.

In the real tennis world, something called the US Open is looming. Men's and women's draws were released today and there are some interesting match-ups early on and potential quarterfinal battles. I will chat more about this sometime over the weekend.

But for now I must put an end to the 21-hour day; sleep sounds good. Tomorrow: Montana bound.
