FAMOUS TENNIS PLAYERS

Just that. And it's a must for younger players who've no idea how legends like Don Budge, Fred Perry, and Jack Kramer rose to fame. This is a highly proficient bit of sports writing that traces the evolution of what may be the world's most popular sport by now, from the days of white flannel to polyester. Chapter-long profiles of the tennis greats (men only) from Big Bill Tilden to Jimmy Connors, and the quirky relationship between personality and physiology that makes champions. This one's ali right.
