Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a marvelous book for the serious tennis enthusiast, interested in bygone days. It is a collection of newspaper articles from the heyday when tennis writers were very literate and thorough in their coverage. I was very pleased by the efficiency and quickness of the seller (nenflpatriot-books) that provided it.

Format: Hardcover
The Fireside Bool of Tennis is a great curl-up book to either read by going through it cover-to-cover or skipping to specific players, matches, or time periods of interest. Great insight into well-known and not-as-well-known male and female players from the past, as well as in-depth looks at memorable matches. As they say in tennis jargon, "It' a smash!"

Format: Hardcover
Allison Danzig, one of the most prolific sports writers for The New York Times from 1923 through 1968, delivers an extraordinary view of the game's greatest players--including closeups of Don Budge and "Big Bill" Tilden-- both who died in early 2000. This is THE coffee table book for tennis fans worldwide.
