Of the many illustrious champions in tennis, there are few whose names are as synonymous with Wimbledon as Boris Becker, who, in 2015, celebrated the 30th anniversary of his remarkable entry into the sport’s pantheon of greats. Boris’s story is almost without parallel in tennis, from astonishing teenage talent, to champion, to a renowned television commentator, manager, and now coach to one of the world’s greatest contemporary players, Novak Djokovic. In this wonderful new book, Boris shares his unique story, tracing his career through the many changes in the sport but which has, at its heart, his loving relationship with Wimbledon, the place where it all began for him. He talks frankly about his own career, reflecting on what it was like to play in the era of McEnroe, Connors, Lendl and Edberg, and the changes that have transpired in fitness, the media, the partying, the equipment, the tactics, the personalities, the technology, and the commerce.
