Question ATP Books

Last year I managed to pick up a copy of this book (ATP 2010 Season Preview) at my local newsagents.

Since about December I have been checking the ATP-sanctioned store to order the 2011 Season Preview when it was released. Unfortunately, they don't seem to have published one this year. Anyone know why?

In the mean time, I was wondering whether it was worth getting this book - the 2011 Media Guide. Anybody else got this. What do you think?

I support Andy Murray!

Re: ATP Books

Can you not download the Media Guide from the ATP website any longer? I found the 2010 one there last year. I thought it was actually quite good. Nice if you are interested in statistics and the history of the game, which I feel we both are.

Re: ATP Books

Ah... good shout!

I've found it here http://www.atpworldtour.com/~/media/...8D8C9C160.ashx

HOLEY MOLEY! That's a goldmine of information. I'm definitely going to buy that! There's something nice about having a book to have and hold in front of you containing such a glut of knowledge...

Thanks, dude!

You're welcome. And I completely agree - I always keep referring myself to that media guide from time to time.

As for a glut of knowledge, I hope nobody will mind me making a little plug for Voo's book. I haven't bought it yet but it looks pretty amazing...certainly if Voo's work on this forum is something to go by then I am sure I won't be disappointed. Here's the link:
