Cheston Knapp's short story, his first published, in issue number 133 of One-Story, "A Minor Momentousness in the History of Love," uses a professional tennis match as a trope for William's, a ball-boy, failed relationship with his girlfriend, Charlotte. As William seeks methods to deal with his explosive and ill-placed anger, the tennis match parries William's possible solutions and strategies.
The story is written in present-tense and first person POV and the last page switches to a plural first person POV. It's a fairly long story, over 10,000 words, and takes place during one tennis tournament sprinkled with recent backstory. We never learn why William Able is so incredibly angry and I think that's fine.
