William "Big Bill" Tilden is often regarded as one of the greatest tennis players of all time. He was the highest ranked player for nearly a decade and in the course of his career, he won 14 Majors tournaments. He was a three time Wimbledon champion and a seven time U.S. Open winner. Between 1912 and 1930, he had a record of 907-62 and won 138 of the 192 tournaments in which he competed. Today, Tilden's legacy has been tarnished by scandal. He was arrested twice in his life for engaging in sexual acts with teenage boys in the 1940s, and he was shunned by the public. Nevertheless, he is considered the greatest tennis player of the first half of the 20th century and his impact on the sport of tennis is immeasurable. This book is Tilden's instructional guide to the sport as it was played in his era. In it he describes and demonstrates the various techniques and fundamentals of the game
