About & Schedule

The Tennis Review is a tennis site for fans written by a fan. Written and edited by Christian Deverille since 2012, The Tennis Review aims to cover  men’s tennis in an in-depth, informative, and creative way.


I publish at least two articles a month from January-September and at least one article a month from October-December. These articles are usually previews and reviews of slams and big events, but they can also be more general articles on the state of the game or particular players. Please subscribe to get notifications of when a new article is published or check in every couple of weeks to see what articles are up.

 If you do not hear from me for over a fortnight, please send a message at thetennisreviewer@gmail.com to make sure I have not been abducted by aliens. Hopefully, if I have and I make it back, I might have something interesting to report, especially if the aliens happened to play tennis.

About Christian: I first played tennis at the age of 8, about the time I first saw Becker and Edberg battling out Wimbledon finals, and I was instantly hooked.

Mentored by the mysterious Baron, a family friend, I played week in week out into my teens, but no matter how hard I practiced, my lack of athleticism meant my endeavors only got me so far.

But while I might not have been that handy with a racket (I’m a 3.5, after nearly 30 years of playing, on my best day! ), what I am handy with is a keyboard.

Christian’s favorite shot: The forehand down the line. Hit, preferably, by Juan Martin del Potro.

Favorite players: Roger Federer (seen live 3 times), Stefan Edberg (seen once), Pete Sampras (seen twice), Juan Martin Del Potro (seen once).

Favorite tournament: The Australian Open. Love the courts, the colors, night matches.

Favorite thing about tennis: Point construction. Love to see a long point played out and finished with a winner.

Favorite passion after tennis: Cats. If the two ever come together in an unholy alliance, my life would be complete.
