Overview


For 22 years, Alan Mills was responsible for the smooth running of Wimbledon, becoming virtually synonymous with the world’s most celebrated tennis tournament. Along the way, he encountered many of the greatest players in the modern game, from John McEnroe to Boris Becker, Steffi Graf to the Williams sisters. Now retired as tournament referee, Mills looks back over a career that began as a professional player and led to the top job in tennis. Amusing, surprising, and full of anecdotes and insights into the closed world of pro tennis, Lifting the Covers is a diverting account by the man who, for many, was the enduring public face of the ultimate Grand Slam.
