New Digital Tennis Magazine, Tennis Journal, Launched
new digital tennis magazine, Tennis Journal, has been launched by some
of the sports’ foremost writers. Veteran tennis writers such as Matt
Cronin, Doug Robson, Joel Drucker, Tom Tebbutt, Kamakshi Tandon and
Richard Osborn have articles in the new issue. The magazine was launched
partly as an attempt to rekindle long-form journalism in the sport,
which is largely missing these days with the decline of the number of
pages in print publications.
