Summary
"Since 2004, two names have dominated men's tennis: Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer. Each player is legendary in his own right. The Spanish Nadal is the winner of fourteen Grand Slam titles, including five consecutive French Open singles titles from 2010-2014, and is the only player ever to win a Grand Slam for ten straight years. Swiss Federer has spent over three hundred weeks of his career ranked as the number one player in the world, and has won seventeen Grand Slam titles and two Olympic medals. But neither player's career would have been nearly as successful without the decade long rivalry that pushed them to excel to the peak of tennis excellence. Nadal and Federer have met thirty-four times over the course of their careers, and have shared the distinction of being ranked the two best players in the world for an astounding six years in a row from 2005-2009. In Sin Red, international sports journalist Sebastian Fest uses information gleaned from his numerous interviews with both players over the last decade to narrate the rivalry, and its impact not only on the players, but on the sport itself. Documenting their respective wins and losses, hopes and disappointments, and their relationship with their rival, Fest formulates a unique biography of two of the greatest players of tennis. "--
