2.0 out of 5 stars Very ordinary in terms of players profiles, 24 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Court Confidential: Inside the World of Tennis (Kindle Edition)
The author himself points out the almost 'death' of tennis journalists due to Twitter and constant media coverage of tennis tournaments, and then follows up by writing a book with no real insights into the personal lives if super stars of the tennis world. Instead the author seems more impressed by the officials and organisers of the various tennis bodies hosting these events. Granted these administrators do a wonderful job at administrating tours and tournaments but the players are the real stars of the tennis show.
The book is a diary of sorts of a tennis journalist viewing from the court side of most of the big tournaments on the ATP circuit for the year 2012. It does have interesting stories about allocation of wild cards and UK tax laws which affect all foreign players playing in the UK, but for me falls shorts of any serious profiles of the players. There is also too much focus on British players in the book. All in all I found the book a pretty disappointing read.
