Reviews

"This book is perhaps the best tonic for any tennis fan who fears for the future of the game in the inevitable, post-Roger Federer era. A delightful marriage of photography and graceful prose." --Peter Bodo, ESPN.com tennis columnist and author of The Courts of Babylon: Tales of Greed and Glory in the New Age of Professional Tennis
"A compelling combination of original photography and insightful commentary." --Andrei Medvedev, 1999 French Open finalist, Team Ukraine Davis Cup captain
"A great book. It charts the future of men's tennis in perceptive and engaging prose, illustrated profusely by some of the best tennis photography I have ever seen." -- Karl Hale, Tournament Director ATP World Tour 1000 Masters Toronto
"This book advances a fascination for a new era in tennis. After Federer, Nadal, Djokovic and Murray other myths will rise and flourish, but not immediately: after all it takes at least a decade to create a legend, but the book casts intriguing and intimate portrayals of the champions who will have to emerge from the shadow of the Four. Portraits and excellent images, which offer a glimpse into the future." --Gianni Merlo, President of International Sports Press Association, reporter at La Gazzetta dello Sport
