A Farewell From The Tennis Nerds!

It is a bittersweet moment for The Tennis Nerds! After over three years of being engulfed in tennis coverage, the time has come for the next step in my career.

For those that may not know, this site as well as all social media accounts were founded by myself, Joey Hanf. As a recent graduate from Ithaca College, I have spent much of this year applying, interviewing and weighing work options. I am very excited to announce that I have accepted an offer and will be starting very soon with Cliff Drysdale Management in the Marketing department. Many of you will know Cliff Drysdale, who is a former elite pro and now tennis analyst and commentator on ESPN. I am very excited about the opportunities ahead, and am very thankful to be working inside the tennis industry; something I’m truly passionate about.

The Tennis Nerds began as a simple blog with little direction, but soon began to take off and give me some of the best experiences of my life. In the podcast embedded above, I talk about how everything began, what I learned and finally look back on my favorite moments. I also give an important thanks to many who have helped me get to where I am now.

Thanks to everyone who has followed and read my content over the last few years, whether it be on this website, twitter or elsewhere. Your engagement and shared passion for tennis is what made this outlet so meaningful. As always, if you want to get in contact with me, follow me on twitter (@TheTennisNerds) or shoot me an email: joey.hanf@gmail.com.

Update: TTN is Back!

Hello fellow tennis nerds!

You’ve probably noticed by now the extreme lack of posts in recent months. I just finished my Junior year in college, and this semester was probably the busiest school year in my life. Along with a lot of upper level classes, I was working with Cornell Tennis and had very little free time on my hands. I’m really loving college tennis these days, and to experience that atmosphere first hand was a very rewarding experience.

BUT. I have still been watching an incredible amount of pro tennis, and if you follow me on twitter(you should) you’ll know that I’ve been very active on that platform.

That being said, I’m very excited to announce that I will be back to posting (excellent) content on a regular basis this summer. I’m not sure how many tournaments I’ll be able to get to, but I can tell you that I will be at the US Open for an extended period of time, and would like to cover at least one other North American hard court event.

So get excited, because TTN is back! I’m really looking forward to the action at Roland Garros, Wimbledon and the summer hard court series. These next 3-4 months are truly the best time to be a tennis fan, and I’m happy to be back writing and discussing the greatest sport in the world with you guys.

What are you guys, the readers, looking forward to the most during this summer tennis season?
