Roger Federer's elegant tennis appears effortless; Christopher Clarey digs deeper to expose the work, grit, training, and supporting cast at the heart of Federer's beautiful game. Clarey has interviewed Federer many times, along with many of his rivals, coaches, and family members. Narrator Kiff VandenHeuval does a fine job of keeping the listener engaged in the rallies through five-set matches, gut- wrenching losses (let's be honest, if you're listening, you're a fan, and you always wanted Federer to win), and a drama-free personal life. Federer, who is famously calm, once struggled with his temper as he cursed and smashed rackets. While VandenHeuval's energy and enthusiasm are impeccable, his shaky accents that don't match real people and occasional mispronunciations of some peripheral characters' names take some getting used to.
