I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy reading Inside Tennis. You have a wonderful gift, writing brilliant articles with refreshing insights.

My family absolutely loves Inside Tennis. When a new issue comes out, we fight over it. We actually spend more time reading Inside Tennis than all our other sports magazines combined.
I loved your year-in-review edition.
Your magazine is par excellence, bar none. Your intuitiveness shines through and the depth in which you delve into emotions while bringing across your subjects’ feelings and personalities is quite perceptive, thought-provoking and, usually, inspiring.

What makes Inside Tennis so special is that it intertwines tennis with so many facets of life.
CEO, Peter Burwash International
Your embracing of the many participants in this sport reaches into our spirits and souls. Kudos.
In terms of creativity, no editorial staff I deal with comes close to yours. Your magazine is vastly superior … It’s interesting that a regional magazine is better than a national.
Over the last few years, Inside Tennis has quietly become the most interesting and readable tennis publication around, due in large part to its characteristic, bemused intelligence.
I am writing to thank you and to celebrate all that entrepreneurs like Bill Simons bring to the game of tennis. Many of us take for granted that almost monthly we get the best coverage of everything tennis. Few know that without Bill’s blood, sweat and tears over the last 33 years, there would be no Inside Tennis. Every month he does whatever it takes to make sure this magazine works editorially, financially and for the families he employs.
During this economic downturn, magazines and businesses are failing, yet somehow, Bill and his staff have always been able to make it happen. Like a Grand Slam champion, in many regards, he is out there on his own, grinding out match after match.
For us readers, the magazine employees, and tennis in general, Bill Simons’ efforts have made a tremendous difference. Inside Tennis has become a staple in the tennis world, equal to those great names it has covered for decades: Sampras, Agassi, Inside Tennis.
Bill Simons’ efforts to build, maintain and help Inside Tennis thrive have not only touched the lives of readers, USTA members and the industry as a whole, but most importantly, the staff and families which the magazine helps support.
