Game, Set, Match, Champion Arthur Ashe

By Kirkus Reviews

This illustrated biography of sports icon Arthur Ashe follows the trajectory of his remarkable tennis career from his childhood attraction to the sport to his greatest triumph as Wimbledon champion. . . . Hubbard does a creditable job telling his story, particularly in describing tennis matches and Ashe’s strategies for winning. She has identified some of the most compelling events from Ashe’s past as examples of a complex and influential life, and her focus on Ashe’s mental abilities are a balance to his recognized athletic skills. The excellent backmatter includes an afterword, chronology, author’s note and bibliography.
