Tennis (styled as TENNIS)[3][4] is an American sports magazine owned by the Miller Publishing Group. It is a monthly magazine – but publishes only 8 issues per year – which covers news from the world of tennis.


Tennis was first published on August 16, 1954.[5] It has been published for over forty years and it has been available online for over ten years. It was purchased by The New York Times Company in 1967. Miller Publishing bought the magazine in 1997.

Aside from articles about the most recent events and most active players, the magazine also includes the recent ranking for both ATP and WTA, as well as brief summaries of the future tournaments, their participants and the past winners.


Tennis legend Chris Evert became the publisher as of the March 2001 issue.[6] She has her own personal section in the magazine—usually the first page—which is called "Chrissie's Page".

Aside from Chris Evert, other famous players and coaches also contribute to the magazine. Paul Annacone, former coach of Pete Sampras, is the Senior Instruction Editor and Brad Gilbert, former coach of Andre Agassi and Andy Roddick, is Touring Instruction Editor. Pete Sampras is a part owner and special consultant to the magazine.
