A teenage favourite revisited

I thought this book was amazing when I was young. Not only for its story, but because it was based on reality. The birth of pro tennis.
I recently started dabbling in tennis myself again as a 50 year old and thought I'd give this a reread and hoped it wasn't too young for me.
It's as good as it was then. And makes me want to practice my serve every day.
