"At a fundamental level, tennis is a contest between 2 players to determine who can best create order out of randomness. The player's job is to use the energy and wisdom of a finely-tuned neuro-muscular system to bring order to this potential chaos, organize the flight of the ball, and direct the ball back at the waiting opponent."
