              Late to the Ball: Age. Learn. Fight. Love. Play Tennis. Win. (Audio CD / Audio)

              Being a man or a woman in your early sixties is different than it was a generation or two ago, at least for the more fortunate of us. We aren't old . . . yet. But we sense it coming: Careers are winding down, kids are gone, parents are dying (friends, too), and our bodies are no ...longer youthful or even middle-aged. Learning to play tennis in your fifties is no small feat, but becoming a serious, competitive tennis player at the age of sixty is a whole other matter. It requires training the body to defy age, and to methodically build one's game--the strokework, footwork, strategy, and mental toughness. Gerald Marzorati started playing the game seriously in his mid-fifties. He had the strong desire to lead an examined physical life, to push his body into the encore of middle age. In Late to the Ball Marzorati writes vividly about the difficulties, frustrations, and the triumphs of his becoming a seriously good tennis player. He takes on his quest with complete vigor and absolute determination to see it through, providing a rich, vicarious experience involving the science of aging, his existential battle with time, and the beautiful, mysterious game of tennis.

              A riveting chronicle of trailblazing tennis champion and cultural icon Serena Williams's turbulent 2019 tour season and a revealing portrait of who she is, both on and off the court.Serena Williams is an undisputed global sports celebrity. Ranked #12 on ESPN's 2018 World Fame 100... list of popular athletes, thirty-seven-year-old Serena Williams is the only female in the top 20, and she's one of the highest paid athletes in the world. The face of women's tennis for the past two decades, Serena is now waging battles on multiple fronts--against age, injuries, and opponents almost twenty years her junior, all while juggling her responsibilities as a new mom. Seeing Serena is an in-depth chronicle of Serena Williams' return to tennis after giving birth to her daughter, and an insightful cultural analysis of the most consequential female athlete of her time. Author Gerald Marzorati shadows her through her 2019 season, from Melbourne and the Australian Open, to Roland-Garros and Wimbledon, and on to the US Open as she seeks her 24th Grand Slam singles title. He writers about her tennis and her forays into fashion, investing, and developing her personal brand on social media. Seeing Serena illuminates Williams's singular status as the greatest women's tennis player of all time and--in a moment when race and gender are the most talked-about topics in America and beyond--a pop icon like no other. Marzorati is on the scene, observing her matches, and talking to her, her coach, her competitors, and former greats who have witnessed her for years. He observes her, listens to her, studies her, explores her roles in society and history--sees Serena fully, in all the ways she has come to matter.
