Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is one of the first glances in biography of the short-lived tennis legend, Bjorn Borg, written by Gene Scott, an east-coast stalwart of men's tennis done in an assured Ivy-league prose. His biography is more general than specific about such things as Bjorn's personal training habits or personal ambitions. Bjorn is still a comet blazing across the tennis sky here not fully revealed. He does manage to elaborate a bit on his personal biases regarding his then, unconventional strokes. Bjorn does get a chance to dismiss the accepted tennis approach to the game,classic strokes vs. idiosyncratic ones,(dominance on nearly all surfaces against the best clay court players, while faltering against hard court players at times)He vanished about the time serve-and-volleyers caught on to his patient play (or tennis racquets improved), and we sense at the close of the book when Bjorn admits to breaking away from his handlers to party with his practice partner, Vitas Gerulaitas, that his sun was about to set.When he left, though, his tennis stardom was secure. The two-handed shot dominates Americans play today while Davis Cup and Wimbledon laurels elude them continuously, the Captains of American tennis stumped. So, I'll give a clue to the clueless. Borg dominated tennis while the practitioners of the serve-and-volley California game aged, and withdrew. The tennis game was plentiful with serv-and-volleyers before Borg. Not since. Oooh, time for a Federer moment.
