This book chronicles professional tennis from the early years until the arrival of the open era in 1968. Many of the greatest male players in tennis history played in the pro ranks. Names like Bill Tilden, Ellsworth Vines, Fred Perry, Donald Budge, Bobby Riggs, Jack Kramer, Pancho Gonzales, Pancho Segura, Tony Trabert, Frank Sedgman, Lew Hoad, Ken Rosewall and Rod Laver won many titles on the pro circuit. There is also a section of results for women's professional tennis. The author has conducted detailed research over many months consulting all the best sources available. Read about Bill Tilden's theatrical confrontations with authority, Pancho Gonzales' feuds, Donald Budge's dominance, Bobby Riggs' matches against Pauline Betz Addie (more than 20 years before Riggs played Margaret Court and Billie-Jean King) and Ken Rosewall and Rod Laver's great rivalry. This book also sheds light on the early years of the pro game, featuring players such as George Kerr and Tom Burke, who played professional tennis in the late 19th century. A must have purchase for all those interested in tennis history. Includes all the most recently discovered results. A delightful book to get one's hands on -- Review in Tennis Threads Magazine.
