From detailed portraits of the icons of the sport to astonishing statistics and the champions’ most remarkable records, this collection of superbly entertaining infographics includes everything you need to know about the tennis world.

Whether it is Serena Williams’ record-breaking wins, the tallest and shortest players on the tour, or Sam Groth’s 163.7mph serve, You Cannot Be Serious! has it covered. The eccentric side of the sport is here too, including players’ peculiar training methods, Andy Murray’s and Maria Sharapova’s pet dogs, and the most outlandish fashion to have graced the courts.

Charting the greatest and most iconic moments in tennis, from 17-year-old Boris Becker’s unexpected Wimbledon victory to Roger Federer’s 20th Grand Slam singles title, You Cannot be Serious! is the perfect companion for devoted amateur players and armchair fans alike.
