Happy Holidays!

Although this is nothing remotely like the previous Christmas holidays I've had the past 15 years--no travel from tournaments, family get-togethers or parties with friends--I'm still going to take my traditional few days off from posting here. 

Usually there's only a day or two before the start of the USTA Winter Nationals when I return, but that's not the case due to yet another cancellation this year. There isn't much news in tennis right now at any level, with the junior circuit particularly quiet, but I hope to have something to report on after a few vacation days.

Snow is falling here in Michigan, and with temperatures in the teens it feels like winter for the first time this season. Whatever and wherever you celebrate, I wish you all the best at this special time of year. Even if many of our gatherings are virtual, those connections are vital, especially now.
