Format: Hardcover
A great, gritty, compelling look at what it really takes to play tennis. We're not just talking technique, we're talking about what it takes to be a winner -- before, during and after matches. Filled with great anecdotes and insights into the game's great players (and near-greats), Fox has crafted a book guaranteed to improve your appreciation and talent at this exceptionally mental game.

Format: Hardcover
I read this as a fifteen year-old. More than 20 years later, it remains one of the best books I have read.
Don't think it's only about tennis or sport. It's about winning. I use the techniques in business, sport, and generally in life.
Written in the '70s, the examples are obviously very outdated, but the essense and content remain epiphanic.
Amazon unfortunately, doesn't carry it anymore. I suggest buying it from one of the other sport-media stores.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By R. Spell VINE VOICE on June 24, 2013
Format: Hardcover
Good book on winning by an exceptional player and coach. I play tennis at a fairly high level and am always looking for ways to improve. This is better than most of the "zen" books on playing and covers preparation and diet as well as strategy. What separates this book is the great stories of actual matches whether he was successful or not. Also, at 145 pages it's not a long book, just about right for the subject. I won't say this will make you a better player but it is well written and a worthwhile read.
