The Fireside Book of Tennis by Allison Danzig.
Fireside Book of Tennis
Fireside Book of Tennis by Allison Danzig
- Fireside Book of Tennis by Allison Danzig - This is the most complete book on Tennis History documented by most of the best players and writers of the 20th century. $29.99 ! Email me to order A backward look at the wonderful heritage of the game is also very rewarding. You can leaf through these pages and comprehend why there are so many old-timers who swear no tennis player was ever as good as Bill Tilden. Or no tennis match is glamorous or as fascinating as the one in which Suzanne Lenglen met Helen Wills...unless perhaps it was the Don Budge-Baron Von Cramm battle that decided the Davis Cup in 1937? But come to think of it, wasn't Jack Crawford's conquest of Ellsworth Vines at Wimbledon in 1933 even more dramatic? Where does Pancho Gonzales rate among All-Time greats? Enough. Let your eye run over the Contents and you'll find your own moments in tennis history that you'll particularly want to explore, whether on a revisit or for the first time. Allison Danzig will tell you about them along with such other superb tennis chroniclers of those days as Parke Cummings, Al Laney, John Tunis, A. Wallis Myers, Edward Potter, and Fred Hawthorne. But this book by no means confines itself to ancient history. A new crop of genuinely knowledgeable and sensitive writers, including Fred Tupper, Herbert Warren Wind, Bud Collins, Lance Tingay, Neil Amdur, Rex Bellamy, David Gray, Richard Evans, Walter Bingham, Will Grimsley, Frank DeFord, and Alan Trengove, are here to recount great moments from more recent times as the stars of today, Rod Laver, John Newcombe, Ken Rosewall, Arthur Ashe, Stan Smith, Tony Roche, and all the rest battle it out for top spot. Nor are the ladies neglected - far from it. The roster of women stars represented ranges all the way back to the Sutton sisters and Hazel Wightman, through the eras of Lenglen and Wills, Alice Marble, Althea Gibson, Maureen Connolly, up to today's outstanding players, Margaret Smith Court, Billie Jean King, Maria Bueno, Ann Jones, and those two newest sensations, Chris Evert and Evonne Goolagong. Part III is completely devoted to instruction of strokes and tactics by outstanding players who excelled in theory as well, such as Tilden, Billy Talbert, George Lott and Pancho Gonzales. In similar vein, scattered through Part I are expert technical analyses of the games of a number of great players, written by Julius D. Heldman. I know of nothing that can compare with them in achieving what they set out to do. Server ready? - Receiver ready? - Read! - Peter Schwed". Large green cloth hard cover book with a small black box on the front cover with a tennis player in it (no writing on front cover), the spine has gold writing.
