Synopsis: This massive volume embraces a history of the game of tennis..its great players and dramatic matches through the years as written on the spot by outstanding tennis writers of each era.

From the days of such giants as Big Bill Tilden and Norman Brookes, Suzanne Lenglen and Helen Wills, it moves through the first half of the century and re-lives the classic careers of Donald Budge, Jack Kramer, Pancho Gonzles, Althea Gibson, Rod Laver, John Newcombe, Evonne Goolagong, Stan Smith, Billie Jean King, and Chris Evert.

The entire spectrum of the game's history and romance is captured in the actual courtside reporting at the time by such tennis experts as Allison Danzig himself, Al Laney, A. Wallis Myers, Fred Tupper, Herbert Warren Wind, Bud Collins, and Frank DeFord, to name a few. There are also versions of famous or controversial events given by the tennis players themselves.

Finally, there is a a 'How to Play' tennis section which has been culled form the best instruction material on the game ever written, chiefly by expert players.

Two lavish illustration sections of historical and action photos through the years portray the changing international scene.
