The ITF Year
|This article relies too much on references to primary sources. (March 2012)|
The ITF Year is the official yearbook of the International Tennis Federation (ITF). It replaced World of Tennis, edited by John Barrett as the ITF's official tennis annual. Its first edition, The ITF Year 2001, described the activities of the ITF in 2001 but was published in January 2002. All subsequent editions have also detailed events in the year following the date in the title, and have been published in the January of the following year, usually around the time of the Australian Open. The book was edited by Joanne Sirman in the 2001 and 2002 editions, and Mitzi Ingram Evans from the 2003 edition onwards.
The front covers of the books depict slightly blurred images of a tennis player or doubles team.
