Product Description

Review

One of the most entertaining sports books of the year… rich in anecdotes and often funny... a terrific read - Daily Mail

A sympathetic, insightful account - --Scotsman

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.

I purchased this book because I wanted to understand Andy Murray better - see beyond what I know from the media. Let's face it, he is not really Britain's darling though somehow I couldn't put my finger on why not. This book uses his US Open victory as a frame and works through his life from early days to the final moment, the Grand Slam triumph. The book analyses his sporting and personal life and is dotted with anecdotes which for me has brought out the real Andy Murray nicely ... a good guy with a fierce drive to succeed and a terrible TV interview presence. The book is well written (Hodgkinson knows what he is doing...I remember reading his work when he was the Telegraph's tennis correspondent) and pages turn very easily. Well worth a read for any Tennis fan.

Reading this book gave me an insight into Andy Murray's world I never knew about. From early struggles to becoming the first British male to win a Grand Slam in 75 years, this book is a revelation. A real absolute page turner. Anyone not a Murray fan, soon will be, when they read this book.

Was worried this had been rushed out to cash in on Andy's success in the US Open but it is a thoroughly well written book. The US Open frames the book but it s full of really informative and interesting facts and events. Written in a great style the pages flash by. Really enjoyable and all credit to Mark Hodgkinson for producing such a great read. Highly recommended.

A great read from start to finish. You felt that you were on the journey with him, the highs and the lows. I would recommend this book to anyone who has even the slightest interest in tennis, you won't be disappointed. You will come away with a better understanding of Andy the man. He hasn't had an easy ride but won through in the end. TRUELY A CHAMPION.

I think this book is remarkable. It gives insight to Murray's life and his career. We can understand Murray as a human being now although his past jokes landed him in dim light. This book keeps a record of all Murray's matches from 2005 to Australian Open 2013. If you would like to understand Andy Murray this is the book for you.

I read it and did enjoy it but would have liked more depth to the writing. Particularly in the later chapters, it became rather bland. I also found the time scale quite difficult.

We in Britain have been waiting a long while for someone to win Wimbledon - Andy has done it. This has been bought as a Christmas present for someone who has followed Andy for years and I have no doubt they will enjoy reading it.
