This is my read for the week -- especially for sports fans. And, if you are a tennis fan, then this is a must-read.
I don't love the random first-person interjections the writer uses -- it's distracting to me. "Venus told me another story:," Weil writes at one point. Why not just relay the story?
Still, this is a fluid, cool analysis that brings so much to the story of Venus Williams. It is the best thing I've read this week.
