Greatest Player of His Era 24 décembre 2011
Par Tech Lover - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
For anyone serious about learning the History of Tennis and what the great players had to do to build this sport, then Rod Laver's 'The Education of a Tennis Player' is just right for you. In the book, there are many stories about his development as a player, but the heart of the book documents his terrific run in 1969 to win the Grand Slam, his second. This, his first as a professional player. The first in 1962 as an amateur.

Many consider Rod Laver to be one of the greatest if not greatest player in the game. But in typical modesty, when asked if he is the Greatest Player of All Time (GOAT), Rod answered, politely, 'It's so difficult to compare different generations of players. I'd rather think of it in terms of greatest of your era.'

This will give you insight into the way the game operated before professional tennis become open to ALL players in 1968, and then, it captures that magical year Laver had in 1969.

For any fan who loves this game, this account written with the help of the legendary Bud Collins, will give you insight into a much different world than all the glitz and glamor of the current tour.

Greatness with Modesty 29 février 2000
Par Rod Koehler - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This is a great autobiography about Rod Laver, the only man to win the Grand Slam twice. Laver mixes autobiography with some "how to" tips at the end of each chapter. This is an interesting read, both from a historical perspective of the game, and the changes it goes through from the amature to the open era, and also just traveling with Rod through his landmark athletic feat. Rod tells his story in a with complete depreciating modisty that makes you respect the man even more.

A great book from Tennis' only Two-time Grand Slam Champion 20 janvier 2011
Par Mark Showalter - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
First of all, Rod Laver is one of my personal heroes, so I wanted to make sure anyone reading this will understand my bias. He's probably the primary player, along with Martina Navratilova, to have inspired me in the over 30 years I've been a teaching pro. This book covers Laver's life, primarily as a tennis player & of course, the focus is on his two Grand Slams. This also contains an updated section including his stroke. For any tennis player, this book should be required reading, period, along with Bill Tilden, Sampras , BJ King, Don budge, just to name a few. My only complaint is that I wish the added part were a lot more detailed. I personally can't get enough of this kind of stuff, & not just from Laver. In his case, like Martina, he's an extraordinary champion & a wonderful example of a true sportsman in the game, which is in too many cases, sadly lacking today. Laver also is a great way to understand the change from the schizoid game of amateur/pro days when there was no mixing to the move into the Open era & just what that meant to the game of tennis.
Good story, poor writing 18 juin 2014

This is a wonderful story about one of the great Australian tennis players. There are a number of practical recommendations provided that one would find helpful on and off the court. The problem with the book is that it is very slow to advance. In one of the early chapeters he descirbes some of the challenges associated with playing on the circuit and being married. In the following chapters those exact same challenges are rehashed again. Not new challenges, the exact same ones which were discussed previously. After getting past that particular style of writing it was an enjoyable book.
I would recommend it strongly !!! 15 novembre 2013

"The Education of a tennis Player" is mostly what Rod Laver did during the 1969 season when he won all the majors (Grandslam). The book is well written and can be read easily. And beyond the 1969 year, Bud Collins (with Rod laver words) also talked about other parts of Laver's marvellous career. Also, right after each chapter, Rod Laver teaches a lesson about an aspect of the game of tennis. I find it a Great Book, although i am only 30 years old!! I couldnt have learnt more about this so beautiful era!!!
