Summary note
Karl was hailed as a rising tennis star, but when he survived the infamous sea-time disaster, his affiliation with guilt had little reckoning until he plunged into activism with Theodore Roosevelt. This was a historic time before and during the Great War when many German-Americans were censored and locked away. Karl s remarkable life included interaction in Brooklyn gang wars during his boyhood, mining for silver in Mexico, business concerns, law, and tennis. For a decade he was ranked in the top ten, twice reaching third in U.S. tennis standings, and played for the Davis Cup. Later, he was credited with bringing the championships from Rhode Island to New York. Combining research and imagination, along with the resource of Karl s memoir, their granddaughter revives the life of a man consumed by competition, the experience of a woman that had remained unspoken, and the twists of love and fate between them.
