Personal Reflections: Sandy, Sports, and Delusions

Last Saturday I went to bed late into the night in my apartment in Queens, New York with a knot in my stomach. Sure, there was a much-hyped hurricane heading towards the city and the winds were picking up rapidly, but primarily I was nervous about the launch of The Changeover that was supposed to take place the next morning. Amy, Juan José, and I had been working non-stop the past couple of weeks to get the site ready, and I was extremely anxious to finally share our project with others.

The Changeover Weekly Reader – November 5 Edition

The Changeover Weekly Reader – November 5 Edition

The Changeover went live on October 28, which -incredibly enough – was only a week ago. It’s been a busy and wonderful first week of existence, and we would love to thank all of you who have stopped by and read any of the 26 posts that we’ve managed to publish throughout these past seven days. We also want to thank you for all the great feedback on Twitter, and all those fantastic retweets. Really, we are most grateful to have such a great group of readers in such a short amount of time.

Welcome to the first Changeover Weekly Reader! Here we will organize the previous week’s posts in a way that you might find useful when you’re trying to catch up on a given tournament or one of our site’s many categories.

Liveblogging Day One of the World Tour Finals

Liveblogging Day One of the World Tour Finals

The ATP World Tour Finals begin today. The world’s top 8 players (minus Rafa) are in London, ready to square off in round-robin action. Today, Andy Murray will start things off by battling Tomas Berdych, and Novak Djokovic will take on Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

Surprisingly, Berdych leads the head-to-head against Murray 4-3, but the US Open champion is still probably the favorite. Djokovic leads the head-to-head against Tsonga, 8-5, but the Frenchman hasn’t beaten the World No. 1 since the 2010 Australian Open.

Join me as I liveblog all the action!
