IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE FUN
ZACH SWISS

That evening they sit in the fading light on the restaurant’s patio and analyze her prospects. She and her coach decide that her quarter, with the third and seventh seeds at either pole, is, if not perfect, at least promising, the seventh seed having failed to advance past the fourth round of the last five Grand Slams and the third seed only recently recovered from knee surgery. “She’s vulnerable,” her father, who’s been listening silently, contributes as he finishes the final octopus tentacle. “You can beat her.”

Scattered phrases reach her mid-swing as her father, who usually disregards pre-match prognostication, reads aloud: “one of the tournament’s youngest”, “impressive recent victories”, “uncommonly powerful forehand”. Across the net, her coach continues to feed her shots. “The Los Angeles Times says you’re a player to watch and a star in the making,” her father summarizes. “Feel good?”

What I see frightens me.
