Maria Bueno Quotes

[My one tennis book] was very, very old. It had a picture of Bill Tilden. I looked at the picture and that was how I learned to hold the racket.
Maria Bueno (b. 1939), U.S. tennis player. As quoted in WomenSports, p. 36 (February 1977). The international tennis champion of the late 1950s and the 1960s never took tennis lessons and was recalling how she learned to play. Tilden (1893-1953) was a champion player in the 1920s and thirties.
