Meet the Author

Pete was born in Austria to Hungarian parents and emigrated to the U.S. at age 4, in 1953. He grew up in New York and suburban New Jersey and began to write about tennis during the "tennis boom" of the 1970s. Since then, he's covered every major tennis tournament multiple times, and has gone on assignment to locales such as Beijing, China, Monte Carlo, Ecuador, Moscow, Hawaii, and Australia. He was the winner of the WTA writer of the year award twice, in 1979 and 1981. While tennis has been the dominant theme in Pete’s professional life, he’s covered events as diverse as the Ali vs. Foreman “Rumble in the Jungle” heavyweight title fight, NCAA Final Four tournament, Major League Baseball, world-class soccer matches, Indianapolis 500, NFL playoffs, and pro bass fishing events. An enthusiastic outdoorsman, Pete divides his time between New York, where he lives with his wife Lisa and son Luke, and their farm in the Catskill town of Andes, N.Y. He has been a principal “Outdoors” columnist for the New York Times and The Atlantic Salmon Journal, and he's the author of the fly-fishing based novel, The Trout Whisperers.
