  • Hannah Wilks Editor
    Hannah Wilks

    Hannah Wilks has been a tennis fan since the 2001 Wimbledon men's final left her in tears on the living-room carpet.

    Starting out as a blogger and prolific Tweeter, she has been writing professionally about tennis since 2009. A long-time frequent contributor to TENNIS.com, she has also written for The Times and aired her opinions on Sports Illustrated's Beyond the Baseline blog. In addition to many long nights hunched over a laptop providing match analysis, she has written on-site coverage from the Paris Masters, the Portugal Open, Queens, Eastbourne, Edgbaston, the 2012 Olympics at Wimbledon and the ATP World Tour Finals.

    Hannah has worked in an administrative capacity on the sports desks of The Sun and The Times and, in the rare moments she is not glued to the tennis, can usually be found editing books on philosophy and visual culture, supporting the Harlequins and England rugby teams or in London pubs arguing the merits of women's tennis.

    I am a student at La Trobe University studying a Bachelor of Journalism (Sport) and I enjoy interviewing young athletes.

    I have grown up playing tennis and when I was younger, I would regularly compete in tournaments across Melbourne. I attend the Australian Open every January and also follow the other major tournaments throughout the year. I follow the AFL and support the Carlton Football Club. Recently, I have grown an interest in soccer, particularly the A-League as Melbourne Heart train close to uni. I enjoy watching them train and attending their press releases. I also volunteer with an organisation called Event Workforce, where I help out at various sporting events around Melbourne.

    As far as I can remember I've always had a keen interest in sport, and over the years have been involved with football, cricket, rugby and hockey teams, whilst also occasionally playing tennis and golf. I've also developed a passion for writing, which began with writing political opinion pieces for University newspapers, and led to employment as a blogger.


    Fortunately, I was able to merge my interests in 2010, when I began writing for Live-Tennis.com. Since then, working for Live-Tennis and associated sites, I've covered the ATP and WTA circuits, and was also able to cover stories about basketball, football, GAA and horse racing.

    As a spectator, I also regularly stay up to date with boxing and Formula 1.

    Steven Webb

    I have been a huge tennis fan since Wimbledon 1996, when I and millions of others cheered Tim Henman all the way to the Wimbledon quarter-finals. I watch the ATP and WTA tours avidly, and aim to see events live whenever possible. My favourite tournaments to visit are the French Open and the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships.

    I have contributed to many online publications, covering everything from business news to education to entertainment! But working for Live Tennis.com allows me to combine my twin passions of writing and tennis.

    Favourite players: Stefan Edberg, Justine Henin, Bjorn Borg, Martina Hingis

    Favourite matches: Djokovic-Nadal, Australian Open 2012; Henin-V Williams, US Open 2007.

  • Michael Hale Editor
    Michael Hale

    I have worked as a journalist for the best part of a decade, covering everything from music and film to sport and business. Having played and watched sport since early childhood, I really enjoy reporting on it professionally.

    I love tennis because of the mix of athleticism, skill and control under pressure required to play it well. The level reached by the top players is remarkable and their clashes at the biggest tournaments are almost always epic occasions.

    While I am drawn to the elite end of the game, I also keep tabs on the junior scene with an eye to spotting the stars of tomorrow and seeing their games develop.

    Other sports I follow include cricket, rugby, cycling and athletics. I keep a track of developments in sports science and actively participate to various levels of competence in fell running, cricket, and, of course, tennis.

    I graduated with a Degree and a Masters in Marketing before going on to be copy writer and PR betting expert for one of Ireland’s biggest bookmakers.

    It might sound like a cliche, but I live and breathe sport – If I’m not playing football, golf or tennis, I’m talking or writing about sport. I have been told I have a slightly worrying knowledge of most sports so I love the odd pub quiz!

    I grew up waiting for Wimbledon to start every summer while cheering on Stefan Edberg and Andre Agassi. I’m privileged to be writing in a time where three of the greatest players ever are in their prime - Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic.

    Growing up in the UK, I wanted to be ‘the next Tim Henman’ but at the age of 12, I came to the solemn realization that I had a better chance of writing my way to Wimbledon instead.

    Since then it hasn't worked out too badly. I've written for tennis, athletics and golf magazines across the world from Athletics Weekly in the UK, to Australian Tennis and Competitor magazine in the US.

    I specialize in interviewing and so far I've been fortunate enough to spend some time in the company of Usain Bolt, Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal to name but a few.     

    Favourite Sports: Most really!  In particular Tennis, Athletics, Boxing, Golf and Football.
