The Art of War: Art of Tennis compares the similarities between warfare and tennis. It emphasizes the importance of the role of the team including the parents, the coach, and the player, in helping players to be able to play to their full potential, much like the way a king, his tactical advisor, and the combat general all have their roles in running a strong nation.

The most difficult unanswered questions about playing competitive tennis and trying to reach world-class status are answered by examining the experiences of top junior and professional players and comparing them to one of the most well-known military books in history, The Art of War by Sun Tzu, a renowned ancient Chinese military tactician and philosopher.

From pre-planning, mental attitude, understanding the scoring system, anticipating opponents from their physical cues, anger management to decision making in the match, The Art of War: Art of Tennis will help readers understand the common difficulties of competitive tennis to mentally prepare parents, coaches, and players alike for the road ahead.
