Wimbledon : Visions of the Championships Hardback
Edited by Ian Hewitt, Bob Martin
Wimbledon - Visions of the Championships is a breathtaking photographic celebration of the world's oldest and most famous tennis championships. A lavish coffee-table book from the team behind Centre Court - The Jewel in Wimbledon's Crown (winner of the 'Best Illustrated Book' award at the 2010 British Sports Book Awards), Wimbledon - Visions of the Championships features sensational behind the scenes pictures of Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Andy Murray, the Williams sisters, Maria Sharapova and many more current tennis stars.
Beyond that it captures the magical atmosphere of those two weeks in June - the quintessential Englishness of it all with the players all in white, the pristine green striped lawns and purple and white flowers, Pimms and strawberries and cream, ballboys, ballgirls and rain! The book is compiled by world-renowned and multi-award winning sports photographer Bob Martin who, along with his team of the world's top tennis photographers, was granted exclusive and unprecedented access to the 2010 Championships in the making of this stunning official book.
