Tennis Makes for Fascinating Psychology

The US Open starts today, and this is a GREAT piece on rivalry and psychology and excellence and loneliness and intimacy between competitors.

I think I would have enjoyed it anyway, but since I read Infinite Jest this summer (a lot more on that when I have some grading to avoid), tennis is a completely different game to me, especially at the highest levels.

I don’t know how useful it is to anyone, but it’s a great read.
