About this title

Synopsis:

This is the fourth book in the successful series of Total Encyclopedias.

From Booklist:

This third edition of Collins' unique perspective on the tennis world includes a wealth of information about a sport that has come in and out of the limelight over the last 20 years. Collins has loved tennis all his life, and tennis has been his life in his job as a sports journalist. He once again brings his significant credentials to this encyclopedic treatment of the professional and significant amateur players of tennis over the last century.

The first half of the volume is a year-by-year chronology noting the highlights for each year, starting in 1919 and stopping in 2002. Statistics for championship singles, doubles, and mixed-doubles winners in the major events are included. For a handful of players, Collins provides articles reprinted from magazines of the time.

Comprehensive statistics and a brief history for the major tournaments--the French Open, Wimbledon, the U.S. Open, and the Australian Open--are contained in the middle section of the encyclopedia along with a selection of color photographs. Similar information is provided on the Davis Cup, the Olympics, and other tournaments. A biographical section has entries for elite players and others who made a significant contribution to the game. Finally, there is statistical information for nearly 400 of the best players in tennis as chosen by Collins using a variety of criteria.

Whether a reader is interested in the articles on the players or the statistics, this is an excellent reference source on tennis. Recommended for most sports collections. RBB
