Not necessarily a tennis buff, I was captivated from page 1! I loved this theme--it was new and fun---many times laugh-out-loud funny! The twists and turns and sordid tangles were gripping and had me racing to turn the page. The characters have great depth--some I loved, and some I loved to hate. Anyone who believes that "all's fair in love and war" can commiserate. I highly recommend this very fun read!
