Wimbledon Reading and Viewing Companion:
The Wimbledon tennis tournament starts June 25th.  It remains one of the most prestigious tennis tournaments in the world.  We have two autobiographies of tennis stars in which you may be interested.  Open by Andre Agassi is a moving look at one of the world’s most beloved tennis champions.  In Getting a Grip former tennis star, Monica Seles talks about her struggles with binge eating and depression after having one of the most remarkable careers in tennis history.

If you are not glued to the television for Wimbledon, the following tennis related movies may be of interest to you.

Dial M for Murder is a classic Alfred Hitchcock thriller in which a former tennis pro decides to have his wife strangled.  This film is part of the Great Classic Films Murder Mystery collection.

Wimbledon is a movie about an aging tennis star that has one last shot to win a major tennis tournament, as well as winning the affection of an up-and-coming tennis player.

Have a great week.  Read good books, watch good movies!
