KIRKUS REVIEW

A veteran's enthusiasm and advice on this game, the former long-term champion not only shows that tennis is a sound, scientific game which everyone can play- but also attacks the way it is being played today, as a power game with too much stress on physical effort, quick result, and snap judgment. Tilden tries to restore here a more thoughtful type of game as he discusses the principles of concentrations, practice, keeping your eye on the ball, the values of footwork and weight control, the various strokes, the net game, and satoh play tactics psychology both in singles and doubles. At the close he gives his estimate of today's players and tomorrow's champions.
