Additional Details

Patrick McEnroe has been in professional tennis one way or another for most of his life. As a player, coach, and ESPN commentator, he's seen it all. The significant tennis books of recent years have all been autobiographies--famous players burnishing their image or attempting to set the record straight within carefully controlled memoirs. No one has been willing to pull back the curtain and present an honest, no-holds-barred look into the ultimate gentleman's sport and the larger-than-life personalities that inhabit it. Here, McEnroe uses his years in the trenches to tell true tales and wild stories about the players you think you know (from Sampras to Agassi to Roddick to the Williams sisters), how and why the game has changed since he first swung a racket, and what the future holds for American tennis.--From publisher description.
