Watched this delightful interview by Gabby Logan with Agassi and Graf, two of my favorite tennis players when I was young. It was more than just two former professional tennis players talking. Very smart and very self-aware. I’ve grown fond of this couple even more now.
The greatest sports piece ever written. Foster Wallace on Federer. Reading it again. Poignant when you know that David Foster Wallace was a child prodigy who played tennis really well before taking up writing, and then dying. Sad, sad, sad.
The second best sports writing, written in 1960 by John Updike on Ted Williams, the Red Sox left fielder.
Have a good sporting weekend.
