Tennis Fans will enjoy this book

Short stories about incredible moments in tennis history, a collection of all the best, most exciting, contraversial and amazing moments in succinct stories of 2-3 pages each.

Very enjoyable, you can read a bit at a time if you're a busy person, ideal for your teabreak!

I must just let Rafa fans know about this book The Poetry of Passion (for People with a Pulse) which I love, it's got 80 poems in about how us fans feel about him, the highs the lows and his lovely humble personality and his sexy looks, and the other poems about love are good too

INCREDIBLE MOMENTS IN BITE SIZE CHUNKS, VERY ENJOYABLE

This book is great for tennis fans and describes 101 incredible moments in bite size chunks, each story is approx 2-3 pages long so it's ideal if you haven't got much time, you can read about one of the "incredible moments" when you get a moment!

It includes statistics in the incredible stories and makes a really interesting and enjoyable read, memories of past Champions including a match between Nastase & McEnroe when chaos broke out with Nastase being disqualified & then re-instated (now I want a copy of that, I must see it!) right up to the recent classics with (my favourite) Nadal's triumph at twighlight at the 2008 Wimbledon.

Rafa fans will also love The Poetry of Passion (for People with a Pulse) as it has a long chapter called "A Fan's Feelings" of 80 poems about Rafa, his career, his personality & his good looks (& the rest of the book is brilliant too) No Rafa fan should be without it

Format: Paperback
101 Incredible Moments in Tennis was throughly enjoyable. Each story is a compelling chapter on its own, but after finishing one I couldn't wait to move on to the next - and the next. Lots of interesting pearls for the tennis buff.

Format: Paperback
This book is really for tennis fanatics only, and the truly informed of those will find little new information. There were a couple of anecdotes which I had NOT heard before, which was nice, but hardly worth the price of admission.
