By Sally Milano,

Ever wonder what a player is thinking before a big match, or how she spends her time both on and off court on any given day? How about what coaches look for in the players they coach, or how they make a talented, motivated player get even better?

Beginning this week and throughout the year, these questions and more will be answered by both players and coaches in a series of blogs they will write for

Seventeen-year-old rising American star CiCi Bellis, currently ranked a career-high No. 72 in the WTA rankings, will kick off the player blogs Wednesday. She will be joined in the coming weeks by other players working with USTA Player Development, including 22-year-old Grace Min, the 2011 US Open girls' champion who is now ranked No. 130 in the world.

Megan Moulton-Levy, a senior coach at the Junior Tennis Champions Center in College Park, Md., who was once ranked as high as No. 50 in the WTA doubles rankings, will start blogging Tuesday, and will be joined by USTA National Coach for Women's Tennis Stephen Huss, who won the 2005 Wimbledon doubles title and is a former men's tennis coach at Virginia Tech. USTA National Coach for Men's Tennis Nicolas Todero, who currently coaches up-and-coming American Frances Tiafoe, will also be writing for later this week.
