Andy Murray is my favorite tennis player, so I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It profiles his life and his tennis career from when he picked up a racquet at age five to where he is now, ranked number eight in the world. This book informed me much more about his personal life off of the court. I learned that he could have become a professional soccer player. He, at one point, had to choose between the two sports he loved, tennis and soccer. He chose tennis though it was a very difficult decision. I remember how, at the Sanchez Casal Academy in, Barcelona, Andy first went to the hard courts and was moved to the clay courts. The clay courts was where the good players play, and he also beat Emilio Sanchez in a tennis match when he was sixteen. I really felt like I got to know Andy Murray more from this book, and the book helped me to evolve as a player, you know, it taught me some valuable tennis lessons. ( )
