About the Author
John Bercow is a keen tennis player, having first picked up a racket in 1971 at the age of eight. He instantly developed a deep passion for the sport, which has endured until this day. He played as a junior in north London until his late teens, and qualified as a coach in the 1980s. Local Member of Parliament for the Buckingham constituency since 1997 and Speaker of the House of Commons since 2009, he still finds time to play recreationally when his schedule allows. He enjoys watching the major tournaments throughout the year on the television and, very occasionally, in person. He lives in London with his wife, Sally, and their three young children.

The best part of the book is the final chapter in which Bercow argues his case for his personal ranking of the 20 players featured. Even if like me you don't agree with his conclusions, the exercise is always an interesting one.
I didn't entirely agree with his ranking of the 20 but he's absolutely right about the No.1 though I suppose I shouldn't say here who it is as it's a spoiler. But I did decide when first discovering this book that I would not buy it unless Bercow's No.1 is the same as my No.1. Fortunately it is, so I bought the book!
