A Brief History …

Steve Flink, of New York, is one of tennis’ preeminent historians and journalists. A lifelong tennis enthusiast, Flink began his career in tennis in the early 1970s when Hall of Famer Bud Collins hired him to help with research at Wimbledon and the US Open. By 1974, he was on staff at World Tennis magazine, where he was a writer and editor until 1991, eloquently sharing the stories of tennis tournaments around the world to readers at home. From 1992 to 2007, he was senior writer for Tennis Week. For the past ten years, he has been lead columnist for
tennischannel.com.

Flink’s extraordinary knowledge of the sport is unparalleled, whether he is analyzing the most impactful moments and champions in tennis history or recalling statistics.  Many of the game’s greatest champions have been known to defer to Flink when questioned on a stat in their own personal history.

Flink is the author of two significant historical books – The Greatest Tennis Matches of the 20th Century and The Greatest Tennis Matches of All-Time. Additionally, for 12 years, he authored player portraits for historian John Barrett’s annual book, World of Tennis. Flink has also extended into broadcast, including on-air work for ESPN and Madison Square Network and more than 25 years as tennis correspondent for CBS Radio and a statistician for ABC, CBS and NBC.
