Frank Parker: Champion in the Golden Age of Tennis Paperback – August 1, 2002
Best Books of the Year So Far in fiction, nonfiction, mysteries, children's books, and much more.
From the Inside Flap
From the age of eight, when Frank shagged balls at his hometown tennis club, his affection for the sport and natural talent were evident. He won his first national tournament at the age of 14, earning him the nickname "Boy Wonder of Tennis."
Though holding the record during his career for most USLTA top ten rankings, Frank's skill was overshadowed by WWII and his scandalous marriage to his coach's former wife. Yet his talents are remembered by those who knew him and rivaled him on the courts. The book features quotes from several of Frank's contemporaries including Gardnar Mulloy, Pancho Segura, Ted Schroeder, Eddie Moylan, Bill Talbert, Tony Trabert, Gene Mako, and Cliff Sutter.
