3.0 out of 5 stars It's a eulogy, 23 May 2010
By 
This review is from: Golden Boy: The Life and Times of Lew Hoad, a Tennis Legend (Paperback)
A book about tennisplayer Lew Hoad, twice a Wimbeldon-champion, winner of wife majors. Offcourse he deserves a biography. Let me First say that it's a good read. I enjoyed it. Lew Hoad emerges as a modest, almost shy, amiable, and one of the greatest tennisplayer ever. A chronological account of life and a little bit times of Lew Hoad.
But there is a big but. It's more an eulogy than a biography. Everybody loved him, adored him, worshipped him. And be it as it may, and it's sure he was a very sympathetic fellow, the emphasis starts to annoy. Even his outbursts at the court, which maybe once or twice occurred in his career, is explained away.
But in conclusion a fair read. And after finishing this book you realise Lew Hoad, his life and times, deserves a more `serious' biography.
