The Art of Tennis II: An Exploration of Planet Tennis

by Dominic J. Stevenson




Planet Tennis. A world of high-profile tournaments, legendary competitors, up-and-coming youngsters, and fuzzy yellow balls.

The Art of Tennis II is a brand-new collection of soulful and reflective tennis writing, providing 120 tennis narratives that deliver passionate insights, magical on-court moments, and a fresh perspective on the sport.

Starting at Wimbledon 2018, and following the women’s and men’s tours over the next 12 months, join Dominic J. Stevenson as he examines the rise and fall, resurrection, and departure of many of the competitors treading the boards of a truly global sport. Covering big names including Roger Federer, Serena Williams, Rafael Nadal, Naomi Osaka, Novak Djokovic, and Ashleigh Barty, the book also examines the games of many of tennis’ young guns; names such as Alexander Zverev, Bianca Andreescu, Felix Auger-Aliassime, Belinda Bencic, and Stefanos Tsitsipas.

With thoughtful observations into both on-court and off-court events, from the Grand Slams and Masters and Premier tournaments, to other iconic smaller events across the globe, The Art of Tennis II offers a unique perspective on the world’s finest sport, and provides a wonderful insight into a year on tour, and everything it entails.
