"open"

my take: i wasn't a huge fan of the original andre: the brash, garish, angry early andre. i was a fan of the comeback andre and i'm a huge fan of his book. while some of it is hard to believe, with the help of his co-author he tells a compelling story that i couldn't put down. i especially like the parts about brook shields, steffi (she prefers stefanie), and andre's take on other tennis players...he's got lots of big names to drop. my tennis coach seems to have picked up on all sorts of strategy and techniques ... that's why he's the coach & how i view court time as a social event.

my source: read Jennifer & Kyle's copy

recommend: tennis fans especially

rating: B+

genre: autobiography

  1. Also enjoyed the book. It was interesting to read Andre's account of tournaments I remember watching.
