The Art of Lawn Tennis

Front Cover
The Minerva Group, Inc., 2001 - Sports & Recreation - 260 pages
Tennis is at once an art and a science. The game as played by such men as Norman E. Brookes, the late Anthony Wilding, William M. Johnston, and R.N. Williams is art. Yet like all true art, it has its basis in scientific methods that must be learned and learned thoroughly for a foundation before the artistic structure of a great tennis game can be constructed.
