KIRKUS REVIEW

A honey of a little book for tennis enthusiasts, particularly those not too advanced, but with pointers for any player. Introduced by Harry Hopman, his teacher and Captain of the Australian Davis Cup Team, Frank Sedgman presents the basic elements of tennis and the niceties of stroke production. Grip and stance, the three fundamental strokes in tennis, the development of a net game come under the first category. Slice or chop, drop shots, lobs, and half volleys; game types and tactics, doubles games; important rules; equipment of interior and exterior nature make up the second section of the book. A proponent of the ""Big Game"", Frank Sedgman writes with simplicity, clarity, and conviction. He also tells of his own career in relation to the points he makes...good for high school players on up.
