About this Item

314 pages with 16 pages B&W photo pages; (740 grams); **** [ INTERNATIONAL ORDERS (Non-USA & NON-Canada) = SURFACE ONLY Please; SORRY, NO overseas AIRMAIL Orders will be accepted on this HEAVY Book]; **** "Ted Tinling is to tennis what Gertrude Stein was to the Lost Generation. When Ted Tinling began his lifelong connection with tennis, it was a rich man's game played in the esclusive domain of the French Riviera. The sons and daughters of the Edwardians played it. But only the right Edwardians. Ted Tinling was one of them. From locker room to center court, Ted Tinling was the mediator of the world of tennis. He was Suzanne Lenglen's emotional bulwark; he knew of the sexual improprieties of Big Bill Tilden; he witnessed the triumphs of France's Four Musketeers; he arbitrated with the Queen of England during the infamous Gussy Moran lace-panties fiasco. He is the world's leading expert on women's tennis and was the official clothing designer of the Virginia Slims Tennis Circuit. Lew Hoad's sore serving arm, Jimmy Connors's irascibility, Billie Jean King's fiery will to win, Chris Evert's imperturbable perfection, Bobby Riggs's hustler's gall all are part of Ted Tinling's personal experience." *** DUST JACKET is overall VG, but 1 " Tear in Front, 2-1/2" Tear in Back, 1-1/2" x 1-1/2" Piece off BACK cover, thus DJ is Good; ** Book = Minor writing on front endpage, otherwise Near FINE; Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
