In Grand Slams of Tennis, join author and tennis tragic Eamon Evans as he picks apart the rich tapestry that is the history of Grand Slam tennis. Learn who liked to play without underpants, who never changes her socks, which player has been in and out of jail ... and which one became a nun.
Complete with profiles of each of the four Grand Slam tournaments, as well as breakdowns of modern tennis’s most breathtaking matches and an insight into what being a champion is like off the court, this is a must-read for any fan who likes their tennis served with a laugh.
The Grand Slams of Tennis are big in every way: they feature the most players and they fork out the most prize money; they have the shiniest trophies and the noisiest crowds. Factor in insane fans, legendary tempers and disintegrating wigs, and you’ve got everything you need for high drama on centre court.
