So I saw this really readable David Foster Wallace article on Roger Federer, the Swiss tennis world number one by a considerable margin. If you’re a tennis fan, you may want to check out especially the second paragraph describing a typical jaw-dropping Federer moment. I think tennis is going to enjoy a mild surge in popularity (the fan base is still too small globally and Federer is too dominant for the surge to be a huge one) purely because of Federer’s transcendental talent – he makes tennis exceedingly watchable.
P/S. This David Foster Wallace person sure can write.
