內容簡介

內容簡介 The purpose of this book is to capture a fan's perspective of the greatest era in men's professional tennis. I want this book to serve the diehard tennis fans. I also want what makes these four individuals the outstanding tennis players they are, where we can learn and apply to our everyday lives. This will be a non-fiction book that will combine the love of tennis and self development. We have Roger Federer, Raphael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, and Andy Murray. Roger and Novak are arguably the two greatest all around tennis players ever. Nadal is the greatest clay court player ever, which is undisputed with to this date ten French Open titles. Andy Murray has hung with the other three and is one of the most important tennis players by being the first Great Britain male to win Wimbledon since 1936. Andy accomplished that feat in 2013. I will cover many of their epic matches that made many of the fans glued to the television. The ones that come to mind are the 2008 Wimbledon Final between Rafa and Roger as well as the 2012 Australian Open Final between Novak and Rafa. Of course there is Andy's first triumph in the 2012 U.S. Open as well. I also want to capture the minds and hearts of these four champions. Andy had to overcome the pressure of a Great Britain not winning a Grand Slam major in decades. Andy is also a two time Olympic gold medalist and reached number one in the world in 20Raphael Nadal is arguably the greatest warrior tennis has ever seen. There is no player more mentally tough and determined to win a match. He plays every point like it is his last point. He wears down his opponents both mentally and physically. Clay court tennis is the most difficult and taxing surface to play tennis on, and Rafa has just annihilated the record books. Not only do I want to capture his tenacity, but I also want to capture how Rafa rebounded in 2017 to become the number one player in the world after being written off in 2015 and 2016. For Novak Djokovic, he could be the most interesting story. Novak grew up during in extremely troublesome times in Serbia. Novak had to survive through two wars growing up. Novak has also had some adversity after winning his first major at age 20. Novak considered quitting the game in 2010. After soul searching and changing up his routine, including his diet, Novak went to dominate 2011 by winning three majors and becoming number one in the world. Novak is arguably the greatest return of server ever. Novak is such an incredible defender who shrinks the court like no other. Not only is he a great defender, Novak is also a great all around player turning defense to offense. Roger Federer is the first male tennis player to win 20 Grand Slam majors. Roger is considered by many tennis experts as the greatest of all time, which many refer today as the G.O.A.T. To this day, Roger has won 8 Wimbledon titles. He is also the only player to capture at least five majors titles each in three of the four majors. If Novak is the quickest player ever, then Roger is the greatest shot maker ever. Roger plays the game with ease, grace, and beauty. Perhaps Roger owns the greatest forehand in men's tennis history. Because his game is so beautiful, it is easy look past in what truly has made Roger such a great champion. Many do not look at how hard he works both mentally and physically on his game. Roger has showed grit and heart in some tough matches in his career. His toughness was not really recognized until the 2017 Australian Open. I will cover Roger's knee injury that ended his 2016 season and how he came back to face down his biggest rival Raphael Nadal in 2017, including the epic Australian Open Final.
