The Art of Lawn Tennis by Bill Tilden Publisher's Description

A tennis classic by one of the all-time greats and a master of sports psychology. Regarded as one the top athletes of the first half of the 20th century, Bill Tilden (alongside Jo Louis and Babe Ruth) captured the imagination of the world with his dominating play and his dominating personality.

This book's 33 vintage photos and Tilden's commentary are of great interest to anyone curious about the history of tennis. What's more, Tilden's insight into the psychology of match play is as valuable today as it was when he wrote it. Keep in mind, however, that he wrote this in 1920 and 1921, so some of his advice (e.g., that on smoking) is outdated. Though beginners can get guidance on form, this book isn't offered as state-of-the-art instruction on how to train and how the hit the ball. Okay?

It is divided into four parts:
  • Tennis Technique: Strokes and Fundamentals of the Game
  • The Laws of Tennis Psychology
  • Modern Tennis and Its Future
  • Some Sidelights on Famous Players.
This well-put-together eBook in Adobe PDF format supports high-resolution printing. Its many photos have been edited to reduce the effects of age. It comes in two editions. The regular edition is laid out for printing on the 8.5 x 11 inch paper used in the United States. The International Edition (IE) is laid out for printing on the A4 size paper used elsewhere.
