Tennis Quotes

"Paul Fein has collected many of the defining descriptions of the game and its players-things said in anger and awe, disappointment and desperation. To read this book is to visit tennis through the voices of its people."

-- Mary Carillo, TV tennis analyst and the 1977 French Open mixed doubles champion
