Tennis Greats 1920's - 1960's

The past 30-plus years of the Open Era have rewarded us with some truly great tennis players, what with Jimmy Connors, Billie Jean King, Chris Evert, John McEnroe, Martina Navratilova, Bjorn Borg, Pam Shriver, and Pete Sampras. But greatness has lent itself to the sport since its inception. Tennis Greats captures the best players to pick up a racquet between 1920 and 1960, with action scenes from the courts of Wimbledon, the French Open, and Davis Cup competitions. We’re talking Bill Tilden, Maureen Connolly, Don Budge, Margaret Court, Rod Laver, Jack Kramer, and many of the others who helped define the era. Adrian Quist – a tennis legend in his own right – narrates, comparing players from different eras and sharing his “greatest in history” list.
