    The sport of tennis – constantly in the frontline of sport history

    Five hundred pages, forty-five chapters, forty-nine authors – the Routledge Handbook of Tennis: History, Culture and Politics is a veritable treasure trove for academic tennis aficionados. Edited by renowned tennis historian Robert J. Lake, the volume elicited numerous unsolicited enthusiastic exclamations of appreciation and joy from our reviewer, renowned historian of Swedish tennis Johnny Wijk. Actually, his only complaint was the glaring paucity of Swedish tennis.

    Beautifully written, with sound research, balanced arguments and a critical approach

    This review represents a meeting of two very different approaches to tennis history, albeit with one thing in common, the love of the game. David Berry, writer and documentary filmmaker has written a non-academic account of tennis history, A People’s History of Tennis (Pluto Press). Our reviewer is Robert J. Lake, editor of Routledge Handbook of Tennis, a thoroughly academic work. With the said, Lake finds Berry’s book to be beautifully written and painstakingly researched.
