beschrijving

A Philosophy of Tennis provides a unique look at the big questions of philosophy examined through the lens of the game of tennis.

Along the way the reader encounters:
- A stight over the existence of free will
- A visit to a treatment center for chronic tennis losers
- What tennis stars really are thinking during TV interviews
- How faith can help your backhand
- Whether eating bananas during tennis play constitutes ethical 
behavior
- How to confront questioned line calls
- The morality behind tennis shrieking/grunting

Thomas Rowland is a recreational tennis player who lives in Longmeadow, Massachusetts, with his wife Margot. His insights into the philosophy of the game are rooted in a three-year stint as captain of the Lansing (Michigan) Everett High School tennis team (match record 2-21) and a short-lived membership in the 1962 University of Michigan freshman tennis team (cut short after a 0-6, 1-6 loss to then-Canadian junior champion Harry Fauquier on the opening day of practice). He was tennis reporter for the Michigan Daily, and has been an invited speaker before the French Tennis Federation. Most recently he authored Tennisology, a book addressing the science of the sport. Between tennis matches he serves as a pediatric cardiologist at the Baystate Medical Center in Spring eld, Massachusetts.
