Here are some books I've looked at recently that I recommend for any tennis lover.

by Michael Kosta

Who better to get tennis tips from than a member of the undefeated, NCAA winning (2003) University of Illinois men's team? And there are plenty of good tips in this book. Michael, who played professionally and than coached at the University of Michigan after graduation, put together an easy-to-read reference guide for tennis players of all levels.

Tennis Beyond Big Shots
by Greg Moran

Greg Moran may be an award-winning pro who teaches top-level players, but his book tells you how to improve all your shots whether you are playing Wimbledon or playing in the local league. My favorite tip -- "Volleying is not for swingers." Like many of the other tips, the explanation is clear-cut.

Winning Doubles
by Stan Smith

If you want to learn how to play great doubles, try doing it from the man who won a remarkable 61 titles. Stan Smith is synonymous with doubles and Winning Doubles is a great manual of how to play the event and win it.

Breaking Back
by James Blake

The story of how James Blake made his way back from a horrific injury (and the death of his father) is even more compelling as he heads to the Davis Cup final in top form. Just keep the kleenex nearby as you read.

The Roger Federer Story
by Rene Stauffer

Everyone knows that Roger Federer is the deserving number one player in the world, but the journey he took to get there is just as interesting as his backhand.
