"If you know nothing about tennis, this book is for you. And if you know everything about tennis-Hah!-Bud knows more, so this book is for you too!"---Martina Navratilova

"We can't move forward if we don't understand and appreciate our past. This book not only provides us with accurate reporting of the rich tennis history, it keeps us current on the progress of the sport today."---Billie Jean King

"No tennis encyclopedia could be written by anyone but Bud Collins because Bud Collins is the walking tennis encyclopedia-the game's barefoot professor. The only thing missing about the sport from his new edition is a section about Bud himself. But everything else is there-and it's easy to open and use for the whole family."---Frank Deford, author, commentator, Sports Illustrated contributor

"Did you ever see an encyclopedia walking? That's Bud Collins (Who somtimes runs, too). Plunge into his book and swim joyfully through the history of tennis. It's all here."---Dick Enberg, CBS Sports, ESPN
