Book cover for Hard Courts
Over a period of 15 months, Feinstein interviewed close to 200 individuals--players, coaches, managers, trainers, tournament officials, agents, and fans. The world that he describes is not always a pretty one. Scandal, corruption, feigning injury, and other problems are as much a part of this game as they are of any other multimillion-dollar sport. But the pagentry, tradition, and greatness of so many individuals is also a mainstay of the book.
