Fantastic tome of everything tennis!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wimbledon: The Official History (Hardcover)
I was absolutely blown away when I received this mammoth book in the mail. Huge A4 size hardcover book, filled with everything you need to know about world's biggest tennis tournament; Wimbledon.
Delving from the inception of the game when it was known as lawn tennis, chronically advancing to the 2012 Olympics in bite-sized chapters, this is the book on tennis you need to pick up.
For the price of 20 pounds, you cannot go wrong with this epic coffee table book and it will give me something to read during the actual tournament.
Text is easy to read, images look fantastic and everything feels (and smells) of high quality! Highly recommended for the tennis fan!
The only downside is that we aren't living in the Harry Potter world where the highlights could be shown through video clips but hey, nothing a good YouTube search can't fix!
