Tennis Topic of the Day: The Most Beautiful Game

Tennis is a "uniquely strong, complex and beautiful sport", which turns a game into a metaphor, and sport into art. Tennis is: angles, spin, power, control, direction, geometry, speed, strength, movement, balance, drama, dance, deception, doggedness, calmness, explosiveness, analysis, touch, bravado, nimbleness, defiance, elegance and the variety of both the human forms who play it and the styles it is played with --- and so much more. 

Read why many believe that tennis is the most beautiful game.
