More About the Author

Pete is one of the most well-known journalists writing on professional tennis, as well as an avid outdoorsman who's written extensively about fly-fishing, deer hunting, and conservation and environmental issues. Born in Austria to Hungarian parents his family emigrated to the U.S. when Pete was age 4, in 1953. He grew up in New York and suburban New Jersey and began to write about tennis during the "tennis boom" of the 1970s. Since then, he's covered every major tennis tournament numerous times, and has gone on assignment to locales such as Beijing, China, Monte Carlo, Ecuador, Moscow, Hawaii, and Australia. He was the winner of the WTA writer of the year award twice, in 1979 and 1981. His pioneering weblog at Tennis.com, Peter Bodo's TennisWorld, is widely read by an international audience. While tennis has been the dominant theme in Pete's professional life, he's covered events as diverse as the Ali vs. Foreman "Rumble in the Jungle" heavyweight title fight, NCAA Final Four tournament, Major League Baseball, world-class soccer matches, Indianapolis 500, NFL playoffs, and pro bass fishing events. Pete also was a principal "Outdoors" columnist for the New York Times, and a columnist for the Atlantic Salmon Journal. He's written a number of books about his experiences as an angler and hunter, including a picaresque novel with a fly-fishing theme, The Trout Whisperers. Pete divides his time between New York, where he lives with his wife Lisa and son Luke, and their farm in the Catskill town of Andes, N.Y.
