More About This Title The Reduced History of Tennis


No one is safe in this top-spinning compilation of sports commentary and wacky reports. Readers will delight in the ridiculous remembrances of the gentlemen and the players, the ladies and the ball-boys, the coaches and the gurus, and the umpires and the line judges that have graced and disgraced the quintessential game of high summer. The clean aces, racket abuse, net cords, strawberries and cream, the on-court tantrums, and the little white dresses that got the crowd oohing and ahhing in the fruity manner of Dan Maskell are amusingly recalled.


Richard Pendleton is also the author of The Reduced History of Cats.
