The best writing on tennis from the best tennis writers in the business. Racquet Magazine is a quarterly independent tennis magazine that was launched as an antidote to the sameness, blandness and whiteness that has dominated the sport's narrative and coverage thus far. Selected and edited by the magazine's editor and publisher, this compendium of the best tennis writing from Racquet covers tennis' relationship to elitism, family, ageing, literature (Lolita, David Foster Wallace, Philip Roth), race, and popular culture more generally. In short: the sport deserves a voice that reflects the diversity of those who actually play it. Racquet is that voice.
