New tennis blog definitely worth a look!

James McGee is currently Ireland's top tennis player and the recent hero of Ireland's Davis Cup win in Egypt.

James has started what should be a very interesting blog on life as a professional player.

It gives people, in particular our up and coming stars, an insight into what to expect if they decide to go the professional route.  It is very informative and a very enjoyable read and I know I will be keeping tabs on this blog.
