This book was eight years in the making but a century in the telling. Here the author takes readers from the early days of tennis at the legendary Hotel del Coronado-when etiquette reigned and tennis players wore white-to the heyday of tennis during the John McEnroe and Andre Agassi years-when celebrities made the Hotel del Coronado their preferred destination of choice. Author Ben Press has captured a century of tennis at the Hotel del Coronado through rare photographs and witty repertoire. It's an accumulation of photographs and anecdotes no one else could possibly have gathered or written, but more importantly, it's presented through the eyes and words of one of tennis' great emissaries and all-around gentlemen of the sport.
