First the cover of the book is not the one with Lleyton Hewitt (as shown), but instead it is one with Pete Sampras shaking hand with Andre Agassi. So the cover already makes the book very attractive, setting the tone for its content. The best part of the book is not the text but the photos, which actually are the essence of it. Most of the photos are in color, very few in black & white. On the 120 odd pages of the book, there are photos on absolutely every page. So the book is well 'illustrated'. The book covers the recent history of US Open tennis, going back to the Arthur Ash/ Billy Jean King era of the 60s, and ends at the 2001 US Open. The photos gives the reader a clear indication of the major faces and important moments at the Open over the past three decades. I like the entire book, but what stands out is the section on the few select distinct champions of the recent past, including McEnroe, Evert, Connors and Sampras. Just a few made it to the section, which is not surprising because they have performed consistently over the years at the Open that they were all champions of multiple titles at the Open.
I was tempted to give the book 5 stars. The text and the photos are all excellent, with a hard cover. But the binding lets the book down. The pages are coming loose even as a brand new book because the binding is so weak. Nonetheless, it has to be one of the best books ever published on US Open.
