Launched in May 2015, Crosscourt View is a tennis site that covers the Grand Slams, the ATP and WTA tours, and Irish tennis.

On Crosscourt View you will find:

I was a tennis contributor for RTÉ Radio 1's coverage of Rio 2016. I have also spoken about fuzzy yellow balls on Today With Sean O'Rourke, Saturday Sport, Spin 1038 and Dublin City FM.

Background

My name is Stephen Higgins, and I am the creator of Crosscourt View. You can visit my CV/portfolio site here.

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.
