The São Paulo Swallow featured in Tennis Threads

Maria Esther shines in print

Maria Esther Bueno is the first Grand Slam champion to be featured in Tennis Threads’ latest monthly innovation – its Rewind Feature!

Tennis Threads was launched in January 2017 and has quickly established itself as the foremost tennis magazine and website in the UK.

It is also the only monthly printed tennis magazine in the country.

Packed with exclusive news and reports from some of the most respected tennis writers in the game, the January 2018 issue carries a new feature on Champions of the Past.

Many make comparisons with names from previous generations but few actually remember what they have achieved so Tennis Threads is out to set the records straight!

Kicking off this new series in a six-page feature is The São Paulo Swallow, our very own Maria Esther Bueno.

Written by Henry Wancke, the Editor of Tennis Threads, this feature offers a rare insight into the makings of our great champion.
