My name is Stephen Higgins, and I am the creator of Crosscourt View.
This site combines two important facets of my life, journalism and tennis.
After emerging from Griffith College Dublin with a journalism degree, I worked in various capacities for RTÉ, Newstalk and Setanta Sports. During that period, I also wrote about film, music and tennis.
As for the court, I first picked up a racquet aged nine. After a few summer tennis camps I was hooked! Due to a rare hip disease called Perthes, I had to stop at the age of 12.
By my mid teens however, I was healthy enough to resume playing and joined Templeogue Tennis Club in south Dublin. There, you will find me exhibit my array of erratic forehands, decent volleys and questionable dropshots.
