Out of all the tennis magazines, which do you think are the best and most informative?

I get two, Australian Tennis, and Tennis Magazine. Out of those, the Australian one blows the other outta the water.

I'm looking for other magazines to subscribe to so please share your favorites.

Once you had in Germany the tennisrevue, I liked it and they selled it here in Holland too but then they stopped selling it here and then later it went together with the tennismagazin but the tennisrevue was much better according to me

TENNIS WEEK is the VERY BEST TENNIS MAGAZINE, BAR NONE! <img src="graemlins/bounce.gif" border="0" alt="[Bounce]" />

When I first discovered it, I thought I'd died and gone to heaven. <img src="graemlins/angel.gif" border="0" alt="[Angel]" /> It is written expressly for tennis nuts like us! <img src="graemlins/hearts.gif" border="0" alt="[Hearts]" /> <img src="graemlins/hearts.gif" border="0" alt="[Hearts]" /> <img src="graemlins/hearts.gif" border="0" alt="[Hearts]" />

Hmmm.. sorry folks, I don't share your enthusiasm for 'Ace' <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> ! I only get the French 'Tennis' magazine now. It is fabulous, despite the fact that my French is not good! It has about two or three times as many pages as other tennis magazines, is full of really interesting articles, masses of photos, including lots of old tennis pics and offcourt pictures too! It helps that I particularly follow French tennis though! <br /> <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> .

(Is Tennis Magazine an American publication Sonja?)

I think the Australian Tennis Magazine is the best. Great colour, concise reporting, editorials that don't shy away from the issues and a team of journalist who love tennis so much they once did it for free!

I did like Tennis Match when it was published and sold here in Australia.

Tennis Magazine has way to much advertising in it - a bit like O Magazine. Talk about compromising good journalism to feature ads for weight scales and milk.....

I agree Penne... Tennis Mag has way too many ads and features the same resorts in their Fall preview as they do in the summer preview and so on!

~~ Is Ace and TennisWeek sold in the US? Anyone have more info ie: address, URL?

thanks in advance!

I forgot there is also Tennis Life. They had a booth set up outside the Ice Palace for the Capriati/Kournikova exhibition. I got a free issue. It's feature article that month was ASHLEY Harkerland. <br />Not sure what there other issues are like??? <br />Wasn't much to it... quick read.

We in Belgium have "Playtennis" but it's not very good. The journalists are making too many mistakes (bad translations from English mags?) and the emphasis is more on local tennis news.

I heard there is a new one available, "Advantage", but isn't that a Dutch one?

Here in the US, we don't really have what I would call a good tennis magazine. Out of the ones I've been getting in recent years, I thought (the now defunct) Tennis Match was the best.

Tennis (10 issues/yr) should actually be called Tennis Lite. As mentioned, way too many ads. Also, lots of space devoted to resorts, etc. Almost nothing in the way of tournament coverage. (About a page worth in the back of each issue.) Website: <a href="http://www.tennis.com" target="_blank">http://www.tennis.com</A>

Tennis Week (was 20 issues/yr, may be down to 16 now) likes to bill itself as the magazine for the "serious tennis enthusiast". They do have singles draw sheets for all events on both main tours, as well as the tour schedules and top 200 singles rankings at press time. But the rest of their coverage leaves a lot to be desired. Their most prolfic writer, Andrea Leand, is <u>the</u> worst writer in tennis. (And if you know my opinion of tennis writers in general, that's bad.) She specializes in the feature article that mentions poor treatment of the subject by anonymous "other players". The whole magazine tends to have a pro-men/anti-women slant. For example, the Fed Cup finals, even with the U.S. involved, is lucky if it gets a few photos on a single page. No articles. Davis Cup gets multiple pages of coverage, even without the U.S. Since I've started getting Notes & Netcords 6½ years ago, I've seen numerous positive happenings and stats about women's tennis that never made the pages of Tennis Week. Even their website, <a href="http://www.tennisweek.com" target="_blank">http://www.tennisweek.com</A> , never made any mention of the WTA joining in the "Auction for America". Rubin's sponsorship (and rescue) of 5 tournaments got a one-sentence blurb in the back; the same size as one to announce a journeyman player signing with a small racquet brand. They have underlisted the prize money for the women's tournaments all year long. (That's nothing new. For most of the season after the tour and Virginia Slims parted ways, they listed the rankings as "Virginia Slims rankings".) They leave most of the women's event telecasts out of their TV listings. They can't get through an entire article about women's tennis without saying something negative. There has not been one article about the women's tour or any of its players, however short, that was completely positive, in a long, long time.

We desperately need a good tennis mag here.
