    Patricia Edwards
Back in the early 1970s a determined young blonde set up her own business that was to transform her life and add considerably to the prestige of Wimbledon, the world's most famous tennis tournament. Her name was Patricia Edwards and she has now written "Wimbledon Confidential", an account of more than 30 years of her professional involvement with the tournament that turns The Championships inside out. Most of today's tennis stars are so surrounded by minders that the public has little idea of what these sportsmen and women are really like. In "Wimbledon Confidential", published on June 19th 2007, Patricia Edwards provides a picture of their true personalities. She also talks about the stars of yesterday whom the public hold in great affection (often more so than when they were playing).The book also provides a warts-and-all insight into how one of the world's largest sports events is run. It will appeal to all those who love tennis, but also to the large numbers who follow the sport on a more casual, two-weeks-a-year basis. This is not a heavy-duty sports book that records matches won and lost. Nor is it a dull sportsman's autobiography. It contains many elements that make it widely appealing: gossip, intrigue, the class-ridden traditions of the All England Lawn Tennis Club, and even scandal. Englishness at its best and worst, nostalgia, sports superstars, and money.
