John McEnroe enjoyed tremendous success at all levels of tennis and owns 77 career singles titles, including seven Grand Slams. He joined the circuit in 1978 and it took him only three years to attain the No. 1 ranking. The 1980 Wimbledon final, between McEnroe and Bjorn Borg, is considered by many tennis experts to be the best match ever, a five-set thriller which McEnroe avenged the following year for his first Wimbledon title. In doubles, McEnroe is recognised as the best player of all time. He was ranked No. 1 for a record 257 weeks and captured a total of 74 titles, including eight Grand Slams. Still an active player, McEnroe is now a tennis commentator and broadcaster for the BBC and other national networks. This autobiography covers his amazing tennis career, marriage to movie star Tatum O'Neal and where arguably the greatest tennis player of all time goes from here.

About the Author:

Born in Wiesbaden in Germany in 1959, this most American of sports stars was the No 1 player in the world four times (1981-84) and some would say the best ever.

Review:

Anyone who read the reports of last December's Honda Challenge 'Champions Tour' will have been struck how one aspect of John McEnroe's character hasn't changed. Despite wealth and a place in the game's history, when he's on court McEnroe still loses it, big time. The jury is out as to whether this is all an act to bring in the punters, or whether, as Pat Cash thinks, it is genuine frustration that he isn't as good as he once was. This autobiography (embargoed because of serialisation) will discuss this and other aspects of this most complex of characters. McEnroe has been in and out of therapy, has fathered five children by two different wives - the first film star Tatum O'Neal, the second rock singer Patty Smyth - and has invented a new career for himself as an assured commentator.
