This chapter focuses on the author's interview with American tennis player Don Budge during the French Open. It explains that Budge was a jazz fan, who believed that, among the male tennis players, it was Charlie Parker who played like a jazz musician, because he liked to hit a rising ball. The chapter also discusses the author's opinion that it was John McEnroe who played most like a jazz musician.

Keywords:   Don Budge, tennis player, French Open, jazz musician, Charlie Parker, John McEnroe
