A fascinating, behind-the-scenes look at the tennis world by the hugely popular Wimbledon referee, Alan Mills.

He made tennis history in 1959 when he won a Davis Cup singles match 6-0 6-0 6-0 in 32 minutes, and he was the first Englishman to beat the Australian champion Rod Laver in 1961. He took over as Wimbledon referee in 1983 and retired after the 2005 tournament. He continues to coach and referee at other grand slam tournaments around the world, travelling around eight months a year.
