3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing new, 9 May 2009
This has been a long awaited book looking into one of the best players tennis has seen. Although Rafa is still very young he has accomplished a great deal. The interesting thing for me was not what he has won - as it is all very recent and easily accessable on the internet - but how he got there, what makes him tick. Previous biographies about Roger Federer and the autobiography by Pistol Pete Sampras were must better at giving an insight into the past sacrifices etc that these players must make to get to where they are. This book fails on many levels not least the miraculous brushing over of his childhood, his relationship with his uncle Tony and his uncle's relationship with Rafa's father. If you ever read the Rafa blog on line you'll get nearly all of this information for free. You can even ask Rafa questions yourself. Shame, looking forward to a more detailed and researched biography.
