    If you haven't heard already, Strokes of Genius, is now available from Sports Illustrated writer Jon Wertheim. The new book is about the epic 2008 Wimbledon final between Nadal and Federer.

    I thought it was a fantastic read, and is the perfect prelude to this year's Wimbledon. One of the more telling quotes, that I think all of you would agree with, is that the match was "essentially a four-hour, forty-eight-minute infomercial for everything that is right about tennis-a festival of skill, accuracy, grace, strength, speed, endurance, determination, and sportsmanship."

    The book is available now - and is currently one of the top selling sports books on Amazon.

    I finished the book a couple of weeks ago. It is very good; I enjoy learning about the background to the match, the history of Federer and Nadal and even the chair umpire's story as well.
