Tennis Cigarette Cards

The origins of tennis can be traced back as far as Ancient Greece. However, its modern form dates back to the late 19th century and spread mainly throughout the English-speaking world, particularly among the upper classes. Only a small number of cigarette card sets were devoted purely to tennis, although many general sports' sets do contain tennis cards, along with other sports.
  I've listed a small selection of sets containing tennis cards below. I've provided scans of a sample card from each set and I've tried to list as many card titles as possible.
