First Lady of Tennis Hazel Hotchkissn Wightman

First Lady of Tennis is a short biography of Hazel Hotchkiss Wightman, the donor of the Wightman cup for international tennis play and the first honoree in the University of California women’s athlete hall of fame. She won innumerable national championships in tennis, and took two gold medals in the 1924 Olympics. 

This book traces Hazel’s career and her honors, but it also details Hazel’s lifelong dedication to teaching the game. She profoundly influenced leading players on both coasts, teaching, housing, and feeding them, leading to her nickname "Queen Mother of Tennis."
