17 aces is about my passion for the written word. Having a voice, stating an opinion, and to be truly knowledgeable about all the things I love, is the aim here. As the name suggests, this blog will mostly be about tennis (Rafael Nadal)…sometimes dotted with movie reviews, (huge movie buff), soaps that I love ( You better love my blog-A), music I hum to, my love for painting and what’s new in the art world, products that I love, architecture that inspires me, Countries I love, Hotels and travel destinations,food I love,etc. I hope to see 17 aces grow manifold, to become one of your favorite reads
