"For me the best book about tennis next to Agassi's OPEN and Gilbert's WINNING UGLY! Very good book and fascinating information about the top tennis players."

"Probably one of the best tennis books I've read in the last few years. Not the typical instruction based book. This book tries to find the common factors that all great players have and explains how to develop a young player into a tennis champion. great read"
"Being a coach I travelled to some of these academies myself i think this book is great for the way how facts and scenario are described. 
It also gives you a realistic picture on how tough but possible is to win Wimbledon."

"If you want to know what it takes to become a really great tennis player then read this book." 

"I only wish I had a copy when I was younger."

"This book gives you the ins and outs of becoming a world class tennis player. By examining the paths taken by many of the worlds greats it starts to become more and more clear what needs to be done if a champion is going to emerge. It is also a lot of fun to read the full tennis history, from the womb to Wimbledon champion so to speak, of all these different Wimbledon champions. A great read for anyone interested in tennis, and a necessity for any parents whose children are showing a strong interest in the game."

A fantastic read with no stone unturned in the research and experience of this author.. Once you pick it up you don`t want to put the book down- some great personal insights into what it takes to be a champion and for the price an absolute bargain buy!

Plan your route and fulfil your own tennis destiny!
