TBE, have you read John Feinstein's book, Hard Courts? It was publised quite a while ago, 1992, I think, but it is IMO one of the best Books about tennis and the tour, both mens and womens. I also like Bud Collins' book, My Life with The Pros, also a much older book. Great for tennis history buffs. I think his Encyclopedia Of Tennis is invaluable to the real fan.
I do like bios, and have most of them. Also have the two mysteries written by Navratilova (with credited help - can't think of her name now) which are set in the tennis world. We also have Rita Mae Brown's novel written after her affair with Martina, also set in the tennis world and too funny and bitchy for words.
I'm too pissed at MacEnroe to buy his book but if the library gets it, I'll check it out and read it.
What the world needs now is love, sweet love!
