BOOKS & ARTICLES
Billie Jean King ALL IN Autobiography I can't wait to dig into this book!
The Master: The Long Run and Beautiful Game of Roger Federer I listened to an interview with author Christopher Clarey and I can't wait to read this. Now that Roger's career is nearing its end, we can truly start to reflect on how special he is and everything he's done for the game of tennis.
Uniqlo Renovates SoHo Flagship to Mark 15 Years in the US When Roger left Nike for Uniqlo a few years ago, I was a little bummed. Nike's RF baseball caps are my absolute favorite. I purchased some of the new Uniqlo versions, and they're just not the same. Nevertheless, I will try to pop into the flagship store and checkout the Roger section.
Searching for NYC's Finest New Pastries Nothing makes me happier than a flaky croissant and a latte. It's my personal mission to try all of these!
The Pair Minimum | Racquet Magazine I can't tell you how much I love Raqcuet Magazine! They managed to blend tennis, fashion, and style in one beautiful periodical. I especially love that Rennae Stubbs and Caitlin Thompson appreciate Benoit Paire as much as I do. He could be a character in a Wes Anderson movie, sassy, stylish, and very French.
Tennis.com Podcast with Kamau Murray : Leslie Allen I really enjoyed listening to this conversation, getting to know more about Leslie Allen and understanding the issues faced by players of color. As someone who is also a player of color and who didn't grow up playing at a country club, I really appreciated this.
The Tennis Podcast : Making of the Master - Roger Federer, by Chris Clarey This is a really nice interview with the author of Making of the Master. Chris Clarey talks about how he's managed to organize decades of interviews with Roger and the people close to him into a nice summarized book. He talks about some of the "luck" that Roger had as well as his rivalries with Rafa and Novak.
I hope you get a chance to read or listen to these!
