In Federer and Me, Skidelsky asks what it is about the Swiss star that transfixes him, and countless others. He dissects the wonders of his forehand, reflects on his rivalry with Nadal, revels in his victories and relives his most crushing defeats. In charting his obsession, Skidelsky also explores the evolution of modern tennis, the role of beauty in sport and the psychology of fandom.
