maybe the wrong forum but:
Im searching for a christmas gift for a good friend of mine. he recently started to play and watch tennis. now he's interested in the games history and future and i would like to buy him a good book to catch up. i searched on the internet but did not found anything good.
he loves statistics so it should have that as well.
thanks in advance
PS: the book should be written in english.
There is a book he might enjoy. It has a long title:
"How to be ranked around 100 in the world, pose for Playboy, and get far more press than any WTA player will ever get" by Ash Harkleroad.
I am not sure if your friend will like the statistics (probably something like 31 - 22 - 34 I'd guess).
It seems to translate well into all languages. Very quick read. Really tells you all you need to know about the WTA (present and future).
