This is the story of tennis as it's never been told before. It is a top-spinning compilation of sports reports, spoof correspondence and reminiscences about the gentleman 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.
