"101 Incredible Moments In Tennis" is a compilation of the sport's best, worst and most infamous moments. The stories range from tennis' inauspicious beginnings of the nineteenth century to today's highly visible modern game. Included are both high and low points in the history of tennis, from Arthur Ashe's inspiring triumph at Wimbledon to the despicable behavior of the most temperamental players. Also included are descriptions of lesser known but equally stunning moments such as illness and even death on the court. The tennis aficionado will revel in the accounts of the flamboyant Suzanne Lenglen and Bill Tilden of the early years, the stoic but charismatic Rod Laver and his fellow Aussies of the Golden Age, and the larger than life superstars of today. Whether enjoying an individual story or devouring the volume cover to cover, this book is sure to rivet the reader. We're certain you'll agree that "101 Incredible Moments In Tennis" serves up an ace.
