    A good fiction choice: Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace. A good chunk of the book is set at a tennis academy.

    Match Play & The Spin Of The Ball...Bill Tilden!

    Simply put, the Bible of tennis. Despite its age (80 years or so), Chapter 1 is all that one needs to read to master tactics relied upon by every champion throughout the history of our game.
