Editorial Reviews

Review

The Davis Cup Yearbook 1996 captures in full color action pictures and dramatic text the energy, triumphs, disappointments, and excitement of the year-long struggle for team tennis supremacy. A title that in 1996 culminated in a nine hour last-day marathon between France and Sweden that players and fans alike called the most astonishing Davis Cup Final in history. The Davis Cup is an international tennis competition which began in 1900 and now numbers over 127 nations in competition. Here recorded are such great players as Stefan Edberg, Michael Chang, Boris Becker, Thomas Muster, and many others. Davis Cup Yearbook 1996 is a court side seat from the opening games to the final match. Davis Cup Yearbook 1996 is a terrific and memorable read for all tennis enthusiasts, players, and fans. -- Midwest Book Review
