Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Gr. 6^-10. Despite his phenomenal talent, tennis star Pete Sampras' stoic intensity has consistently undermined his public image. Even his first coach described him as "quiet almost to the point of being dull." Yet his resilience has seen Sampras through the loss of a coach to brain cancer and frequent tournament defeats since becoming the youngest U.S. Open champion in history. The finely crafted focus of this biography does the tennis champion justice. With little feedback to draw from (Sampras' interviewers have often chastised him for his less-than-articulate responses), Miller etches a clear and flattering picture of Sampras by neither glorifying nor condemning him personally or professionally. Instead, the author traces Sampras' gradual evolution from an introverted teen tennis ace to the world champion whose recent tearful outbursts on the court have not tarnished but rather humanized the staid professional and endeared him to formerly antagonistic crowds that once literally applauded his errors. Glossary; bibliography. Roger Leslie
