excellent buy

This is without doubt the best sports biography that I have read. It is intriguing and compelling - and even those with a passing interest in tennis will be drawn in. The book is appropriately titled - "Open" expresses just how he honestly expresses the difficulties and challenges that he has faced - with admirable humility. I could not put this book down.

SUPERBLY ENTERTAINING

If you love tennis, this book is for you. Superbly written and entertaining from start to finish. An in depth storyon and off the court which fans will appreciate.
