Us Brits are such big fans of tennis that anyone found not watching the beautiful game with a bowl of strawberries and cream during Wimbledon, can and will be tutted at with increasing ferocity until they change their heinous ways. And with such a rich and exciting history of legendary players, nail-biting matches and its fair share of controversy on our lawns, it’s no wonder that the beautiful game has earned a place in our hearts.
John McEnroe, Andre Agassi, Rafael Nadal, Serena Williams, Boris Becker, Ilie Natase, Martina Navratilova, Rod Laver, Maria Sharapova, Pete Sampras and Andy Murray are just some of the phenomenal tennis stars to have shared their incredible stories in books over the years. And there are plenty more fascinating books out there on the locations, history and science behind the game too. And so we've taken it upon ourselves to put together a must-read list for all the tennis fanatics among us.
Take a look at our list of books that we believe every tennis fan should have read below, and let us know your favourite in the comments box underneath.
