The History of Tennis by Richard Evans
PUBLICATION DATE 25 MARCH 2021
This superb 380-page hardback book tells the story of tennis from the days of Henry VIII through to the superstars of the 21st century. Author Richard Evans was present during many of the iconic moments in tennis history during the last seven decades, and is uniquely placed to give his eye-witness descriptions. Chapter titles include "The WTA is Born", "The 2000s & The Big Four", and "A Spotlight on Doubles", with some of the best photography we have ever seen including many images not published in books before.
A magnificent achievement by Richard, and a book that every tennis lover will enjoy.
