The Beautiful Sport: Taking Inspiration from the Pros

Author David Foster Wallace wrote this about tennis in his 1996 Esquire article:

I submit that tennis is the most beautiful sport there is and also the most demanding. It requires body control, hand-eye coordination, quickness, flat-out speed, endurance, and that weird mix of caution and abandon we call courage. It also requires smarts. Just one single shot in one exchange in one point of a high-level match is a nightmare of mechanical variables.

I agree. It is so beautiful to watch the greats, and so hard to be like them. The lucky thing about tennis is any player can have fun the whole time during your journey to becoming better. Through practice and play we can continue to improve. We should look at the pros for inspiration and learn from watching them, and can still have fun using all the same variables these greats do with such beauty.
