Publisher Comments:

Frank Deford writes a new foreword to his classic biography of tennis champion Bill Tilden, one of the most successful, yet tragic, figures in American sports history. Bill Tilden dominated tennis during the Golden Age of the 1920s, but a fondness for young boys made him a social outcast who would die penniless and alone.
