In It's Not My Fault, author Joshua Shifrin helps tennis players make sense of their most monumental losses on the court. The next time a player goes down in defeat, he or she can always explain the woeful loss with "My opponent was a pusher . . . I can't play against pushers." Or after a bad shot, tennis gurus might try to get out of dodge by uttering, "There was a leaf on the court and I couldn't concentrate."
Shifrin has crafted 150 funny--but all-too-real--excuses for pros and amateurs alike. Examples include:
My opponent's grunting is distracting.
My strings are too tight.
I have tennis elbow.
These tennis balls are too slow.
Any many more!
Whether you want to motivate your friends or family who have just started playing or eradicate embarrassing mistakes in your own game, It's Not My Fault is a must-read. Complete with laugh-out-loud cartoons, this book makes for the perfect gift.
