For much of the past decade, William Skidelsky has had an all-consuming devotion to Roger Federer, whom he considers to be the greatest and most graceful tennis player of all time. In this mesmerizing memoir, Skidelsky ponders what it is about the Swiss star that transfixes him and countless others. Skidelsky dissects the wonders of Federer’s forehand, reflects on his rivalry with Nadal, revels in his victories, and relives his most crushing defeats. But in charting his obsession, Skidelsky also weaves his own past into a captivating story that explores the evolution of modern tennis, the role of beauty in sports, and the psychology of fandom. Thought-provoking and beautifully written, Federer and Me is a frank, funny, and touching account of one fan’s life.

In The Tennis Player from Bermuda, Fiona Hodgkin tells the story of her short but spectacular career as an amateur tennis player in the early 1960s. Fiona met Claire Kershaw, the number one woman tennis player and twice a Wimbledon champion. Claire was an imp. To get Fiona into the qualifying round for Wimbledon, Claire makes a comical, tongue-in-cheek offer to the mysterious Committee that runs the Championships at Wimbledon. Fiona and Claire quickly become best friends - as well as rivals on the brilliant green grass tennis courts of Wimbledon. Against the backdrop of the London social season, the tennis competition at Wimbledon, and the tennis fashions designed by the irrepressible Teddy Tingling, Fiona has two love affairs, one of which Fiona ends forever - or perhaps she doesn't.

This book is written for any tennis player who wants to get good. It focuses on the visual not the physical. It centers on gaining control of the ball through a visual targeting architecture you will construct unique to your game. Direct control of the body or stroke is left behind as you apply these concepts. This frees up your body when hit your shots. It enables you to "hit out." It is the opposite of making your body do something right to control the ball. It is making the ball go where you want it to go, and as a result, your body does the right thing. This is the ball control technique. To play "percentage tennis" you need to know how to choose the right shot in a given situation during a point. This is called shot selection. Shot selection is all about where to shoot your shot, not how to hit your shot. Ball control techniques teach you the "where" is this problem. There are six concepts you will learn on the way to getting ball control and becoming a percentage-tennis player. They are: - Targets and aiming - Playing the arcs - Arc projection - Strength and position - The vector of the oncoming shot - Vision These concepts are tools. Once you understand them you own them. You will be able to apply them, on your own, to improve every time you play. This book breaks the traditional mold of tennis instruction. You can smash straitjacket stroke techniques with these ideas. Applying the concepts within will enable you to "hit out" all the time.

Tennis has never been played better than it is today. To watch Rafael Nadal spin a forehand at 4000 rpm, Maria Sharapova arabesque out of a serve, Serena Williams utterly destroy a short ball, or Roger Federer touch a volley into an impossibly angled winner is to watch not only the best players with the best coaching hitting with the best racquets, it is to watch the culmination of an entire history. Love Game is different from most tennis books—it isn’t a ghostwritten biography, and it won’t teach you how to slice your serve. It’s a book about tennis’s grand culture, one that unveils the sport’s long history as it lives and breathes (or grunts) in the modern game. No one is better equipped to tell this story than novelist and historian Elizabeth Wilson. With a penchant for tennis’s inherent drama, she finds its core: a psychological face off between flamboyant personalities navigating the ebbs and flows of fortune in the confines of a 78 x 36–foot box—whether of clay, grass, or DecoTurf. Walking the finely kempt lawns of Victorian England, she shows how tennis’s early role as a social pastime that included both men and women—and thus, lots of sexual tension—set it apart from most other sports and their dominant masculine appeal. Even today, when power and endurance are more important than ever, tennis still demands that the body behave gracefully and with finesse. In this way, Wilson shows, tennis has retained the vibrant spectacle of human drama and beauty that have always made it special, not just to sports fans but to popular culture. Telling the stories of all the greats, from the Renshaw brothers to Novak Djokovic, and of all the advances, from wooden racquets to network television schedules, Wilson offers a tennis book like no other, keeping the court square in our sights as history is illuminated around it.
