    "Game, set and match" Thank you for presenting such an awesome collection of tennis photographs, Mr. Rowles. I enjoyed every page of it. You supposed correctly, as a reader of yours, I am an avid tennis fan. I love this spectacular sport for the variation of the game, for the involved strategy and the necessary technical aptitudes. It is amazing that despite the immense development, the basic of the game is still the same as in the 19th century. The photos of female tennis players from the 19th century amazed me in particular. What an enthusiasm, a willpower and determination they possessed to practice a sport in their woolen skirts, long underwear and corsets! How they could run with their hats, scarves and gloves! The sport is the ultimate nobility. You cannot vanquish somebody, if you do not vanquish yourself on the first place. You have to overcome the lack of oxygen, the cramps of your muscle and your self-doubt. There is nobody to help you in fighting this interior... More > fight with yourself alone, by your own willpower. You have to continue forward to winning despite the obstacle on the road. That is the philosophy pushing us forward in our life expressing what we are as human beings. This book is homage not only to tennis, but also to sport as a whole.
