Details

Until Andy Murray won Wimbledon, the previous British champion had been Fred Perry, who won three consecutive 1930s titles before turning professional and largely abandoning his homeland. From his working class roots in the North West, this book follows his experiences as a prickly upstart who struggled to find favour with the hidebound tennis establishment. However, following a successful business career, reconciliation came in 1984, when his Wimbledon statue was unveiled.
