About the Author
Mansour Bahrami is one of the leading names on the Seniors Tennis Circuit. With his gift of showmanship, his special athletic talent and his famous trick shots, he is now instantly recognizable to tennis fans everywhere. But few people know of his extraordinary early life. Born in Iran, he was on the verge of breaking into top-flight tennis in the late 1970s when Ayatollah Khomeini ousted the Shah and swept to power. Eventually, he fled to France and, with great determination, reached the Men's Doubles Final of the French Open eight years later in 1989. He is everyone's favourite highlight at the annual Royal Albert Hall Black Rock Championships and at the Veterans Events at Wimbledon itself and at Hurlingham the week before.
