Tennis Book of the Day: "American Colossus: Big Bill Tilden and the Creation of Modern Tennis", by Allen M. Hornblum
Philadelphia-native Bill Tilden (1893-1953) was the first international tennis superstar, and is still considered among the greatest players ever. He transformed the nature of the sport, and blazed a trail which helped tennis become what it is today - a global phenomenon. He was the Federer of tennis before Federer. Recognized as an intellectual, author and teacher, he even acted occasionally in Broadway plays - a true Renaissance Man. His flamboyant life and record-setting career are meticulously chronicled in the masterful book American Colossus: Big Bill Tilden and the Creation of Modern Tennis, by Allen M. Hornblum (University of Nebraska Press, 2018).

“It is said that [tennis] is like a game of chess. Opportunity lies several steps ahead of your opponent. You must know where you are, and where you are going.” Charon, Manager of Continental Hotel, “John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum”
