R.I.P., David Foster Wallace

Extraordinarily talented. Here is his must-read NYT Play magazine piece on Roger Federer from two years ago.

This has deeply saddened me too. His essay on his experiences in youth tennis is also a must-read for anyone with an interest in youth sports. It and another tennis article are in "A Supposedly Fin Thing I'll Never Do Again" The chapter is "Derivative Sport in Tornado Alley" (originally in Harper's under the title "Tennis, Trigonometry, Tornadoes")
