THE WOMEN’S GRAND SLAM RECORD BOOK HAS JUST ARRIVED
VOLUME 2………THE WOMEN’S DRAWS

item 005: THE GRAND SLAM RECORD BOOK, Volume 2: Tutti I resultati degli Slam dal 1877 a oggi 005: THE GRAND SLAM RECORD BOOK, Volume 2: Tutti I resultati degli Slam dal 1877 a oggi compiled by Alessandro Albiero and Andrea Carta with a preface by Federico Ferrero; published in July 2011 in very thick 4to paper covers with 1072 pages.

The first 25 pages are in Italian and they carry the compilers’ comments on the book and its contents. But if you don’t speak/read Italian that is no consequence as the next 1047 pages are the main body of the book which is described here.

This huge new book carries the full and detailed draw sheets for the four Grand Slam events showing the Women’s Singles, Women’s Doubles and Mixed Doubles since they first started. Thus here can be found the

** Australian Championships Women’s Singles and Doubles, and the Mixed Doubles from 1922 to 2011.

** French Championships Women’s Singles and Doubles, and the Mixed Doubles from 1925 to 2010.

** Wimbledon Women’s Singles from 1884 to 2010; the Women’s Doubles from 1913 to 2010, and the Mixed Doubles from 1919 to 2010.

** US Championships Women’s Singles from 1887 to 2010; the Women’s Doubles from 1889 to 2010, and the Mixed Doubles from 1892 to 2010.

** Lengthy tables showing the winners of each of the Grand Slams in year order.

** “Le magnifiche Quattro” (the magnificent four) where the authors have chosen their top four players listing their Grand Slam results; the four players being Maureen Connolly, Margaret Court, Martina Navratilova and Steffi Graf. With each player is their complete and detailed Grand Slam record of all matches played.

This is a much anticipated book; the Men’s equivalent last year sold extremely well and was widely praised as being the only single source where all this information can be found. Only 300 copies of the book have been printed and it is immediately available.

I can offer copies of this large heavy book at £45

PS: Whereas the Men’s edition can truly be titled “dal 1877 a oggi”, I would suggest the women’s edition should be titled “dal 1884 a oggi”.
