The ITF started producing an official Olympic Book for the Olympic Tennis Event at Beijing 2008, and has continued this new tradition by creating another one for London 2012.
This year's book Aspire, Inspire: Celebrating Tennis at the Olympics 2012 is based on the idea of who, or what, inspired you when you were young.
The publication features tennis's most talked-about players revealing who their heroes were growing up, accompanied by some stunning photography and photos of the players themselves as a child.
The book gives both the tennis family and the fans a chance to see the players in a different light, as well as celebrating the sport's Olympic history and stars of past, present and future Olympics.
The 36 Olympic and Paralympic players featured in the book include current world No. 1s Novak Djokovic and Victoria Azarenka, doubles champions Bob and Mike Bryan, and Olympic medallists Roger Federer, Stanislas Wawrinka, Rafael Nadal,and Vera Zvonareva.
Great Britain's Andy Murray also appears in the book, alongside Paralympians Esther Vergeer and Shingo Kunieda, and the up-and-coming Kei Nishikori, Milos Raonic and Agnieszka Radwanska. Over 25 nations worldwide are represented.
Featured alongside this year's Olympic hopefuls are photoshoots with past Olympic medal winners Boris Becker (1992), Elena Dementieva (2008), Arnaud Di Pascuale (2000), Nicolas Massu (2004), Gabriela Sabatini (1988) and Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario (1992, 1996).
The book was officially launched during the Wimbledon fortnight at The All England Club, which is also playing host to the Olympic Tennis Event at London 2012. View a free online version of the book by clicking the flipbook below.
