It's not a patch on the old John Barrett edited World of Tennis Yearbooks. It's mostly just a list of results and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. A quick glance at Jennifer Capriati's meagre biography has her winning the French title last year 11-9 in the last set, so that is not a good start for a statistical yearbook.
Mirjana Lucic : Australian Open doubles champ and back in Top 100
Jelena Jankovic : US Open finalist 2008 and World No. 1
Jennifer Capriati : 3 Grand Slams, Olympic Gold and World No.1

I thought it would be alot better, the way Joanne Sirman (editor) said to me there would be alot more coverage of the juniors ( Its less) they had individual reports of the 3 Junior Team events in each book now all the years coverage is on 3 pages.
the colored pages dont look good either.
Pics are a little better of the young aspiring pros.
I'd rather have the old book back....... wonder what happened between John Barrett and the ITF ???
