Product Description

Review

An excellent and enjoyable read. --Barry Cowan, Sky Sports tennis commentator and former tennis pro

Bercow's prose is elegant, his arguments persuasive, his critiques fascinating. --Neil Harman, The Times tennis correspondent and author of Court Confidential

About the Author

John Bercow is a keen tennis player, having first picked up a racket in 1971 at the age of eight. He instantly developed a deep passion for the sport, which has endured until this day. He played as a junior in north London until his late teens, and qualified as a coach in the 1980s. Local Member of Parliament for the Buckingham constituency since 1997 and Speaker of the House of Commons since 2009, he still finds time to play recreationally when his schedule allows. He enjoys watching the major tournaments throughout the year on the television and, very occasionally, in person. He lives in London with his wife, Sally, and their three young children.

As an avid tennis fan and owner of well over 100 books on the subject I awaited this book with interest. Mr Speaker writes well and obviously knows the game, having played and coached to a good standard. However I was a bit disappointed with this book. The essays on each player include much which has been taken from previously published biographies, many of which I have read. The author is at his best when he analyses the playing styles of his subjects and is more effective in this when he has actually seen them play live.

The best part of the book is the final chapter in which Bercow argues his case for his personal ranking of the 20 players featured. Even if like me you don't agree with his conclusions, the exercise is always an interesting one.

Very enjoyable presentation by the current Speaker of the House of Commons re his choice of the 20 greatest male tennis players. Bercow is also a good tennis player and coach so has the knowledge to write this book convincingly.

I didn't entirely agree with his ranking of the 20 but he's absolutely right about the No.1 though I suppose I shouldn't say here who it is as it's a spoiler. But I did decide when first discovering this book that I would not buy it unless Bercow's No.1 is the same as my No.1. Fortunately it is, so I bought the book!
