Tennis's Most Wanted PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Tennis's Most Wanted free pdf Tennis history is filled with unusual, bizarre, and unbelievable stories. Tennis's Most Wanted chronicles seven hundred of the most outrageous players, coaches, and officials in tennis history. Its seventy lists describe in detail tennis's colorful characters, surprising matches, inept players, bizarre nicknames, outrageous outfits, embarrassing losses, errant shots, terrible tantrums, and more. Only here will you learn that Joshua Pim won Wimbledon in 1893 and 1894 under an assumed name because he was afraid that being a tennis player would hurt his medical practice, or that Frank Riesley and Sydney Smith settled their 1904 Wimbledon semifinal match by flipping a coin. M. H. de Amorin served seventeen consecutive double faults in a 1937 match at Wimbledon. Renee Richards played in the 1955 U.S. Open as a man and (after a sexchange operation) as a woman in 1975. W. C. Fields played tennis with a racket in one hand and a martini in the other. Tony Pickard lost a match at the Italian Open when a linesman left to buy ice cream. "Gorgeous Gussy" Moran did a striptease at a press conference, and Pat Stewart wrote her phone number on her panties for the 1961 Wimbledon. You can find all this and more in Tenni's Most Wanted.
