‘What Peter Ustinov once did for Grand Prix motor racing, The Tournament does for tennis and world culture combined.’
*Clive James*

‘A brilliant invention from a national treasure.’

‘Game, set, match and championship: J. Clarke.’
*Australian Book Review*

‘Ingenious flair for encapsulating a writer, artist or thinker in a few sentences…A funny, clever book.’

‘An affable book full of the hubbub and potential hilarity of high and other culture translated to the domain where things get serious: sport.’
