Our Mission

The Changeover aims to shake up the expectations for what a tennis website should be. The emphasis here is on freedom and creativity: great contemporary writing, personal commentary, and out-of-the-box analysis that incorporates humor and honesty. We want to find new and exciting ways to tell tennis stories — both past and present — using a mixture of long-form pieces, blog posts, free-flowing conversations, videos, GIFs, and social media.

The great Miles Davis said “Don’t play what’s there, play what’s not there.” We don’t want to give you what you can find elsewhere on the web. We want to give you something you can’t find anywhere else. And we want to have a blast while doing it.

    I am impressed by the depth of passion among this group. Anyone can wax about a Federer match at a Slam. But to hear these thoughts on other events: very inspiring and intriguing. You had me at Vesnina.

    Hey guys,

    I’m a newish member of the pro tennis blogging/podcasting/tweeting community, and just wanted to let you know I’m a huge fan of your blogs, and of the podcast. In fact, I’ve been getting my own podcast up and running the last few months. What is it they say about imitation and flattery? ;) Hope you keep enjoying yourselves doing great stuff!
    Take care,
    Dave.

    Great site. Don’t you think it’s time to allow advertising on it so you can make more money?
