FEDERER AND ME, A STORY OF OBSESSION – William Skidelsky, 2015


I love to watch Roger Federer play tennis. I did not think that I would ever read a book about him and his game where the style of prose is at this same level.

This is, in places, a very personal account of how Skidelsky became fixated on the man and his game but it is also a clinical dissection of the technical side of his performances which is so gracefully written that it is a perfect match.
