Florida Tennis magazine was launched in 1992 by Jim Martz, dean of tennis writers in Florida and a vice president of the U.S. Tennis Writers Association. Previously he was the Miami Herald's tennis writer for 18 years and contributed to several national and international publications. He edited the book "50 Love, Advantage Florida," which chronicles the first 50 years of USTA Florida. He co-authored famed tennis coach Rick Macci's book "Macci Magic: Extracting the Best from Yourself and Others" and he authored "Safe Tennis: How to Train and Play to Avoid Injury and Stay Healthy".
Why Florida Tennis?
Florida is "America's Most Important Tennis State," in the words of former USTA president J. Howard "Bumpy" Frazer. It's home to the ATP Tour and WTA Tour headquarters, the USTA National Campus, US Professional Tennis Association headquarters, and leading tennis academies and resorts. It's home to pro tournaments including the Miami Open and Delray Beach Open, along with numerous Challengers and Futures throughout the state. And the world's premier juniors compete in the Eddie Herr and Orange Bowl.
