Format: Hardcover
A great book and a fine review of the Davis Cup and its history. Several timeless photographs and interesting accounts of the ties as they were played. Any fan of the Davis Cup should own this book. If you have been to or watched the ties you will enjoy the memories. If you have not you will enjoy understanding the history and why the Davis Cup should become one of the most important championships in sport.
