Tennis's Strangest Matches

(Häftad)
Beskrivning:

In this hugely entertaining collection of stories taken from over a hundred years of world tennis history, award-winning sports historian Peter Seddon has gathered together the most extraordinary events ever to occur on a tennis court. They include the Wimbledon final between the tea-drinking vicar and a convicted murderer, and the `Match of the Century' between the `Women's Libber' and the `Male Chauvinist Pig'. There are matches played on board ship and on the wings of an airborne plane, a game played in full regimental dress, and meet the player who rated himself so highly he played an entire match while carrying someone `piggy-back'. The stories in this book are bizarre, fascinating, hilarious, and, most importantly, true.Revised, redesigned and updated for a new generation of tennis fanatics, this book is a unique look at the curiosities of an endlessly popular sport, revealing the `strawberries and cream' game as you've never seen it before.Word count: 45,000
