Lawn Tennis: Its Past, Present, and Future (Classic Reprint)
The game presents all the same elements of attack and defence, of finesse and coupe, as does the mimic warfare of the chess-board. It requires severe physical exertion, coupled with activity of mind in constantly thinking out the rapid problems that present them selves during the course of the play: it needs coolness of nerve and eye: and withal it combines the endless variety of a sport in which no two plays are ever exactly the same. Expert skill at the game has steadily advanced for many years, and it seems difficult to pre dict just how much more improvement in the play the future has in store for us.
