This is what I got from the ITF in its statement.

"It is indeed true. From January, the ITF will be producing its own annual publication concentrating on ITF events. We will be selling this to the<br />public."

<br />so disappointing , just hope the new book can live up to the ITF World of Tennis.

It will be focusing on challengers and juniors probably.

I cannot believe it. Ever since Jennifer won the Australian Open I have excitedly been looking forward to the 2002 version. I am devastated.

Wow that so sad - I loved his books - brought it every year. I literally had to hunt them down as they are as rare as hens teeth here in Australia.

He seems to be cutting back a lot of his work now - how old is John Barrett anyway??? In his 70's??

I sure will miss his annuals - so much information in such a little package! <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

He sure is getting on a bit , his wife was Wimbledon Champ in 1961. so he must be around 70.

The ITF World of Tennis books for anyone who doesn't know are truly fantastic books covering a year in tennis. It has the year in review, biographies of all the top players including extensive biographies of the year's Top 10 ATP and WTA players and covers results of all the ATP, WTA, Challenger, junior, wheelchair, Fed Cup, Davis Cup etc etc events. If you are a huge fan of tennis you cannot imagine life without it, but now we must. <img src="frown.gif" border="0">
