4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Tamille Hawkins on July 13, 2000
For this book to cover the 100th Anniversary of the Davis cup, it was a mediocre. It should have been special not only because of its importance to tennis but for the memories of the fans and players. Some of the pictures are of poor quality and are not as clear, crisp and sharp as were pictures from previous yearbooks. The review of each round was average to weak. The only redeeming quality was the foreword by Patrick Rafter where he describes what it is like to play in Davis Cup tournaments. Outside of that, the book offers very little.
