Professional tennis player, coach, and ESPN commentator McEnroe pulls back the curtain and presents and honest, no-holds-barred look into the ultimate gentlemen''s sport and the larger-than-life personalities that inhabit it.
From the Publisher:
A player, commentator and U.S. Davis Cup team captain, and the brother of John McEnroe, offers an insider's view of the last 25 years of professional tennis, discussing such greats as Raphael Nadal, Roger Federer, the Williams sisters, Pete Sampras, Andre Agassi and more. 100,000 first printing.
As a player, commentator, and Davis Cup captain, Patrick McEnroe has been immersed in the world of professional tennis since 1988 and, apparently, he's been taking notes the whole time. Although Patrick may never have matched the on-court success of his brother John, in this enlightening memoir and examination of contemporary tennis, he shows that he can trade strokes with anyone when it comes to analyzing and criticizing the game and its most celebrated participants. McEnroe dishes out a slew of revealing insider stories about many of the stars he crossed racquets with as a player, including Pete Sampras, Andre Agassi, Jimmy Connors, and (of course) his older brother, as well as the athletes he has covered as an announcer, such as Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Andy Roddick, and the Williams sisters.
