Next week

The game of tennis has universal appeal. Wimbledon, first of the year's major outdoor championships, launches a summer of tournament coverage that will not end until the Davis Cup Challenge Round in Cleveland in late September. But lest we forget that tennis is, first of all, a sport for the participant even more than the spectator, SI has prepared an issue within an issue. Surrounded by the week's news—the Olympic track trials, the Machen-Patterson fight, Baltimore's rush for an American League pennant—is our salute to tennis: the game, its players, its courts, techniques, hilarity and hazards, aimed not at the world's best players but at you.
