Excellent Reminder of how tennis should be played:
http://www.worldwideschool.org/library/books/tech/sports/TheArtofLawnTennis/chap9.html

This is an excellent "book" by Will Tilden that I think every serious tennis player should read. Akin to "Winning Ugly" but much better. This links you to a specific page that I found quite ironic. Tilden describes two of the best tennis mentalities a person can have, and as it turns out, one of them is Roger's mentality, and the other is Nadal's mentality. This was written way before their time, and it shows that tennis, in some ways, hasn't changed.

For anybody who wants to play/think about the game like the pros do or just take their game to the next level, you should read this. The whole thing...
