Product Description

About the Author

Mark Hodgkinson, the founder and editor of thetennisspace.com, first met Andy Murray when the Scot, then aged 17, was living in a bungalow at an academy outside Barcelona. A former tennis correspondent for the Daily Telegraph, Hodgkinson has written a short television feature about Wimbledon for the BBC, contributes to British GQ, and wrote the tennis features in the official programme for the London 2012 Olympics. During his time at The Daily Telegraph, he helped Judy Murray with the articles and columns which appeared under her name, in addition to his other role at the paper as Boris Becker's 'ghost'. Hodgkinson lives in south-west London with Amy and their daughter Molly.

As with all sports biography the writing style is not brilliant.It is quite interesting to find our details of the lives of sports personalities in whom you are interested but the very sameness of tone does mean that such books can get rather boring by the end

This biography by a tennis journalist covers Andy Murray's life and career up to and including his Wimbledon win in 2013, famously the first victory in a Grand Slam tournament by a British male player for 77 years. It's quite well written, and mostly free of the annoying style of writing sometimes adopted by journalists writing full length books. Murray comes across as an ordinary bloke who is genuinely not particularly interested in fame for its own sake.

It's just not what I thought it would be, I thought we would hear more from Murray himself talking about his time

I really enjoyed this. Such a great reminder of a special day I will treasure forevermore. I like the overall style of the writing which is littered with humour and anecdotes but sometimes it goes on on a little bit too much. But overall I loved the personal insights into info I had never read about Andy Murray before and as I said before I never get fed up of hearing Andy Murray: Wimbledon champion. NEVER!!!!!

What wonderful pictures the words of this story give one. A young man totally dedicated to his chosen sport. A young life that could have been ruined by tragedy (Dunblane), emotionally torn apart by the break down of his parents marriage, or spoilt by negative write ups in the press. Andy is his own person and throughout has never pretended to be otherwise.
The book gives a terrific insight to the man behind the racquet. Well worth purchasing and the time spent reading it.

This is a really good look at Andy Murray during the lead up to his winning the Wimbledon final. Love or hate him he is a fasinating character and this book reveals how hard he trained and just what it took to break that long held record of Fred Perry. Italso looks back at tennis life and give you a little peep into his private life.
