2013 Projects
 
Purpose of the thread:

To keep us on task regarding projects. I'll try to update this monthly. If other members have projects they wish to work on or suggest this is a good space for it.

Thank you to everyone for their contributions. The hours of hard work and dedication from members from all over the world continues to amaze me. Over the space of the last 11 years we've been slowly but surely piecing together some of the puzzle of tennis history.

I want to take the space thank some of our early pioneers here. Andy T first suggested a results section by year, and Andrew Tas supplied a treasure trove of early results we have built on.

Rollo, please write that you also participate in "my" project, hehe. Your contribution in it is bigger than mine, bacause I only prepare a list of players.

Does anyone know something about ugarte? He has done a great job so far with 1968, but no updates for nearly a month now. So did anything happen to him? Or did he take a break only?

Very excited for the past US Open results 1968...

Hopefully he is just taking a break Chaton. Either that or waiting for me to catch up on editing in 1961!

Happy to have you back with us Ugarte!:)

Did you enjoy your time away from the Blast? While you were gone I was able to catch up a little and edited in some of your results.

I will start in on 1968 when you are done.

Right now I am concentrating on 1971 with Chaton's help.

I finally made a start on doing some 1983 British Newspaper clippings I've got in the 1983 thread - I've got quite a lot of them from 1981-6 period, they're mostly British events Eastbourne, Wimbledon, Brighton, British Champs, but also all the Grand Slams.

I saw them in the 1983 thread. They're great:worship:
