An absolute must to enjoy the game,

This review is from: Winning Ugly: Mental Warfare in Tennis-Lessons from a Master (A Fireside book) (Paperback)
This book did more for me in one sitting than all the books I have read about tennis.
In my short playing life -- 17 years, I have had problems with nervousness and how to handle it, how to close out matches,, how to think on court and strategise. I have read all the books I can lay my hands on -- even the "Inner Game of Tennis", but none comes even close in a brief and easy-to-read manner than Gilbert's , Winning Ugly. I received my copy a week ago and since then my game has zipped to a whole new level.
What I would love to see more of, is Gilbert's anecdotes from the tour and probably analysis of other matches other than his own and how the winners made it happen. I will surely buy the next edition
