About this title


In this text the author traces the spirit of the Davis Cup, the premier teams' event of the International Tennis Federation, from its Anglo-American origins to a showcase boasting 72 contestant nations over the years.

From School Library Journal:

YA Trengrove has exhaustively researched the history of the Davis Cupthe players, the matches, the changes. He emphasizes the sportsmanship that pervades the contest as in no other tennis tournament, and certainly sportsmanship is a quality to be encouraged in modern life. The style is a bit dry, but the photographs and anecdotes lighten the tale. Tennis fanatics will be interested in the details of the United States men's team since 1900.
