New Sports Adventure Novel Just Released by International Author

International author, Richard D Bonte is pleased to announce his book, The Tennis Bubble. Readers are calling it entertaining, funny and instructive.

Atlanta, GA, February 26, 2012 --( This is the story of a typical student-athlete and that of the many tennis families who make the annual trek from wherever in the world they stem from to the Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy in Bradenton, Florida. The Tennis Bubble is not the story of an already known tennis player. It is the story of an ordinary budding tennis hopeful and her very supportive family who has always assigned too much importance to tennis. She is an adolescent girl with all the tools to become a first-class professional tennis player.

This is the story of devastating serves, rifle-crack forehands, pin-point passing shots and tennis-pro like angles that pull the opponent right off the court; of serenity and courage in the face of cheating and frustration.

The author says, "In brief, The Tennis Bubble is a very normal story for all hopefuls out there—both players and their families—and an idea of what it takes from all concerned to try and build a champion."
