MEDIA REVIEWS
"Umpire dramas aside, the U.S. Open is one of the world's great tennis championships. First held in 1881, the Open has been graced by everyone from John McEnroe to Rafa Nadal, and Rick Rennert's book is the tournament's definitive portrait. Packed with fabulous photographs of tennis players past and present, and even a foreword by Serena Williams herself, this is the perfect book to ease your post-Grand Slam blues" -- Daily Mail
"This photographic celebration of the US Open is published to coincide with the tournament's 50th anniversary and traces its history from legends such as Billie Jean King and Arthur Ashe, to contemporary plays such as Roger Federer, and Venus and Serena Williams (the latter has written the forward)." -- TheBookseller
"this coffee table-friendly text...captures the electricity that pervades the National Tennis Center at the end of every summer" -- Esquire online
"A spectacular new book by Rick Renner celebrates these and a host of other electrifying US Open moments - not least Andy Murray's momentous win in 2012 - while telling the story of modern tennis." -- The Herald - Scotland
