"The Greatest Tennis Matches of All Time" (New Chapter Press), written by noted tennis journalist and historian Steve Flink, features profiles and rankings of the greatest matches of all time.

The book dates from the 1920s featuring Bill Tilden and Suzanne Lenglen up through the modern era of tennis featuring contemporary stars Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova.

Flink breaks down, analyzes and puts into historical context the sport's most memorable matches, providing readers with a courtside seat at these most celebrated and significant duels.
