Intro for July 7, 2014
I wasn’t on a side yesterday during the Wimbledon men’s final. All I wanted was a good match. And Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer gave us one of the best. God that Federer one-hand backhand is a thing of beauty. You ever read David Foster Wallace’s essay on Federer’s game? I’ve linked to it before but it’s worth another read. High level writing + first class athleticism deserves your time. Click here. I wish he could also have written a piece about Steffi Graf’s gorgeous one-hand backhand in its time.
Steffi and Andre Agassi were in Vancouver this weekend for Carlo Ancelotti’s wedding.
Welcome back to those of you returning from Independence Day weekend. Did you get my Fourth of July gift?
Yours in gossip,
