Late to the Ball by Gerald Marzorati (My Review)

Late to the Ball: Age. Learn. Fight. Love. Play Tennis. Win.Late to the Ball: Age. Learn. Fight. Love. Play Tennis. Win. by Gerald Marzorati
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Marzorati takes up tennis seriously in his 50s and 60s. While most men his age are slowing up, particularly when it comes to athletic competition, Marzorati hires coaches and consults tennis gurus to improve his game. Marzorati is not only competing with other players but with time and age limitations as well. The book focuses on his struggles to improve in tennis and also details some of the mechanics in perfecting groundstrokes and volleys. As I am the author's age and also enjoy tennis, I found the book fairly interesting. This book may not be as interesting for those who do not enjoy tennis or who are not concerned with athletic limitations because they are relatively young. I admit I found it a bit inspirational – – maybe I'll go out and practice my serves.
