About John Martin

John Martin Photo at US Open by Richard Osborn

In more than 45 years as a professional journalist, I’ve covered tragedy and triumph across the world. My stories have appeared in The New York Times, The San Diego Union, the Washington Monthly, and on ABC News (Nightline, This Week with David Brinkley, World News Tonight with Peter Jennings, 20/20 and Day One).

Since 2002, I’ve been photographing and writing about the world’s top tennis championships: the Australian Open, the French Open, Wimbledon, and the U.S. Open.

World Tennis Gazette tells the stories of players, coaches, and people on court and off. For a journalist, photographer, and player who competed in juniors (Southern California), college (San Diego State), and the USTA (senior age levels), this is the best beat in sports journalism.
