Product description

A celebration of one of sport's most historic and iconic venues - from the epic matches played on Centre Court and the legends who have graced its hallowed grass to the uniquely English atmosphere of ball boys and ball girls, blazers and Robinson's Barley Water. Packed with stunning and evocative images taken from the All England Club's own archives and items of memorabilia plucked from the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum - from Bjorn Borg's headband to Roger Federer's jacket - this lavish and fully endorsed book also includes quotes and stories from some of tennis's greatest names and will be launched to coincide with the unveiling of Centre Court's revolutionary new retractable roof in 2009 when the focus of the sporting world will be on London, SW19.
