These were the days of Rod Layer, Roy Emerson, Lew Hoad, Maria Bueno, Virginia Wade ...and Abe Segal. Gordon Forbes observed them all keenly and recalls them and all the lesser lights, and the days and nights they shared, with affection and gentle irony. This is one of the most honest accounts of tennis in the period, and undoubtedly one of the most entertaining tennis books of any period. But perhaps what comes across most strongly is how much he simply enjoyed it all.Hide synopsis
