Dealer Notes
The author, as a player, then an officer of the Lawn Tennis Association, and referee at Wimbledon and other national tournaments, was experienced on all sides of the sport. His memoirs were recounted in two other books, Centre Court and My Tournaments, but this is his most famous and most collected title.
