about

American Doubles explores the phenomenon of the United States' doubles prowess on the world's tennis courts. Many fans and journalists lament the state of American tennis, wondering when the next great players will hit the scene. What the critics don't know is that Americans have dominated the doubles scene for decades and the future looks bright. From the successes of such legends as Billie Jean King and Stan Smith to the current No. 1 men's team of Bob and Mike Bryan, the story of how Americans have come to rule the doubles court is a fascinating tale told by a longtime journalist and tennis insider, Marcia Frost. American Doubles is packed with touching stories of how some players conceded a chance at singles stardom to preserve ties with a doubles partner, and how sibling pairings are tough to beat. Readers will learn that the success of Americans in the doubles game runs deep-at the junior and college levels to wheelchair tennis, mixed doubles, World TeamTennis and the pro tours. Stanford University's Director of Tennis Dick Gould, who coached the Bryans as well as John and Patrick McEnroe, says the book offers "a close-up view that is intriguing, exciting and impossible to put down."
