Re: Do You Consider Matthew Cronin A Credible Tennis Journalist?
There's alot of good tennis writers covering tournaments. They do it when it's in that time frame of event. These writes aren't "scoop" or "rumour" types, they present in depth pieces of players. I've read very interesting articles on Hingis, Daniela, Alicia Molik, Amelie, Justine, Patty, Hewitt, Andy Murray, Davis Cup, Fed Cup etc..
But this is real reading not "hot of the week" type articles or writers.
There's Eleanor Preston, and she's on REUTERS.
Joel Drucker on CBS Sportsline and various publications.
Stuart Bathgath covers WIMBLEDON every year from Scotland, and UK tennis.
Jerry Magree who's been around a long time and covers the Calfornia hardcourt seasons. Before the 1980's! He's based in San Diego.
James Beck is another good tennis writer that's covered the Family Circle Cup in Charleston from the early days and seen all the big and new players of the WTA of the different professional era generations. He's based in Charleston.
