"Chalk Flew Up: Tennis, Art, And My Two Cents"


Cutting to the chase, allow me to just come right out and ask, “Can tennis be considered an art form?” I am like so sure that question has been asked and answered more times than there are art forms in its definition, but I just have to put in my two cents worth. Let’s begin with a somewhat condensed definition of art. This could get lengthy, but here it goes.
