The Tennis Tragic #047 / Both Flesh and Not / David reads from David Foster Wallace's seminal 2006 Federer essay. Roger reflects on the bitterness and the sweetness. Matte sheds some tears for tennis royalty. Alex suggests potential partners for the future doubles world Number One. We also recap the US Open - a torch passed to Carlos Alcaraz, a promise from Frances Tiafoe, and a change of racquet from Iga Swiatek - and go searching for deep cuts in the dusty bins of the ATP Top 2500.
