IN 1962, A GIRL FROM BERMUDA PLAYED AT WIMBLEDON—AND FELL IN LOVE
"Have you ever read a book you loved so much that when you reached the end you wished you could start all over again? That's exactly the way I felt when I finished reading The Tennis Player from Bermuda, written by Bermudian author, Fiona Hodgkin. For those of you yet to read it, I envy you because seriously, if you only read one book this year, it has to be The Tennis Player from Bermuda!"
—The Bermudian Magazine (February 2013).
“Oh, and, by the way, The Tennis Player From Bermuda is a beautifully-written book, which totally succeeds as a work of art. Three short chapters into it and the reader is moved by the relationship between the ingénue Fiona and her Bermuda-based coach, the taciturn, but shyly supportive Rachel Martin. The emotional sureness of the writing, the characterization and the dialogue make The Tennis Player From Bermuda a success.”
—Long Island Tennis Magazine (April 2013)
“This is a terrific story about accomplished women. Of particular delight is the great historical detail about Wimbledon, and the characters that inhabited the world of tennis in the early 1960s. This book also includes the funniest telegram ever sent.”
—Tom Hall, Culture Editor, WYPR Radio, Baltimore
“Meticulous research coupled with skillful weaving of historical tennis fact with fiction."
