Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 6 Up-Starting with facts about the medieval roots of the game, this book is filled with information about the history of the sport. Topics discussed include the growth of tennis in different countries, its competitive and recreational aspects, and female and African-American representation. Boxes highlighting various people and topics (fashion, "Grand Slammers," scoring, etc.) are included. Coverage of famous players focuses on historic figures such as William Tilden, who won his first championship at Forest Hills in 1913, and Suzanne Lenglen, who captured her first Wimbledon title in 1920. Mention of contemporary stars generally ranges from a mention to a few paragraphs (John McEnroe, Monica Seles, Venus Williams, etc.). Concluding sections include awards and statistics and annotated lists of books for further reading (some dating back to the 1970s). Average-quality, black-and-white reproductions and photographs appear throughout.
