Really disappointed with ITF Year 2001

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

[center]Rafael Nadal : 10 Grand Slams, Olympic Gold and World No.1 [/center]

Mark ....i agree

its nothing too special

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 ???

Good luck to my favs

Oh no! I havent got my copy yet, but was really looking forward to it.

Does anyone know why they decided to discontinue the old book?

Gosh-and I thought the quality of recent ITF yearbooks had declined even from the 80's, when they gave reports on tier one and two type events!
