Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

$17.95. sports Braden offers a "first-aid" approach to veteran players plagued by common tennis ailments. Entire chapters are devoted to specific strokes and problems associated with each, followed by causes and cures designed to provide immediate improvement. The material is organized in an easily accessible manner, and the illustrations throughout are excellent. Not for novices, who are referred to Braden's first book, Tennis for the Future . Trabert presents a highly critical commentary on the current state of professional tennis, tracing its troubles back to 1968 when players were first paid for winning tournaments. He claims the game has evolved into a "global money chase" dominated by greedy promoters, players, and agents more concerned with money than the sport. To reverse the trend, he recommends a greater effort by parents and instructors to instill a sense of loyalty and appreciation of the game. He comments on his role as a TV broadcaster and provides tips on tennis fitness. Both books are suitable as supplements to popular tennis collections. William H. Hoffman, Ft. Myers-Lee Cty.
