Re: Writing a Book About Women's Tennis
All of those are very interesting ideas, but I think the main focus is dealing with the pressures of success, as we've clearly seen that a lot of players (Ivanovic, Hantuchova, Kuznetsova, Vaidisova, Myskina) couldn't deal with pressure and how it can precipitate and ruin other aspects of life. Dramatizing that kind of story gives a better response in terms of identifying with a character. It may not be necessarily a "movie" novel full of action or suspense, but the fact remains that a lot of classics are tales of the human experience, and women's tennis' champions have all learned how to deal with it and become great.
