Too Soon to Panic

Too Soon to Panic

by Forbes (Author)


Gordon Forbes and his sister travelled the world during the last days of amateur tennis in the late 1950s and early 1960s. He played for the South African Davis Cup team from 1955 to 1963 and reached the Men's Doubles semi-finals at Wimbledon. He retired from the game in 1964 but returned to the circuit as an observer. This work describes life on the tennis circuit from the 50s to the present day and the many characters Forbes has encountered - all-time greats such as Andre Agassi and John McEnroe, the entrepreneurs of the sport such as Mark McCormack and Sol Kerzner, players, coaches, organizers and fans.
