The Future of Tennis
At the heart...
In The Future of Tennis, Philip Slayton and Peter Figura examine a selection of the players outside of the Big Four and introduce the reader to the great depth of field in the men’s game and the personalities that enliven the sport. Complete with stunning photography by Peter Figura, this book answers questions about who are some of the other players on the tour, what drives them, and give insight into their foibles and eccentricities.
“This book is perhaps the best tonic for any tennis fan who fears for the future of the game in the inevitable, post-Roger Federer era. A delightful marriage of photography and graceful prose.”
– Peter Bodo, ESPN.com tennis columnist
“A compelling combination of original photography and insightful commentary.”
-Andrei Medvedev, 199 French Open finalist, Team Ukraine David Cup captain
“A great book. It charts the future of men’s tennis in perceptive and engaging prose, illustrated profusely by some of the best tennis photography I have ever seen.”
-Karl Hale, Tournament Director ATP World Tour 1000 Masters Toronto
