Book Description and Condition

Book description and condition

He is a tennis legend - an Australian icon. He was the world number one, a multiple Wimbledon, US and Australian Open Champion, a fighter who would push himself to the limit and beyond to win, yet he never (or almost never) lost his sense of humour or fun. He's a larrikin, but he's also a hugely successful businessman in his own right. He believes that playing in or captaining a team in the Davis Cup is the greatest thing a tennis player can achieve. And as a mentor and inspiration to

players such as Pat Rafter and Lleyton Hewitt, he has been a crucial influence of the new generation of Australian champions. Above all he is a brilliant raconteur, and his memoirs are simply unput-downable, filled with gripping tennis drama, extraordinary stories from both on and off the court, deep insights into life, and above all a humour and warmth that Newk's fans love. 227 x 152mm., pp. xv, 270, black & white and colour plates. Trade paperback, pictorial card covers. Contents, small (light) stain top edge, SIGNED by JOHN NEWCOMBE (Title page) - no other inscriptions; card covers, slightly rubbed on corners - no reading creases on spine. NEAR FINE.
