I assume a bunch of people here have read lewis's "all the way to wimbledon'
it's a great read..almost as good as becker's book i reckon.

goes into detail about his career and why borg was a great player given the technology/courts of the time.

i was reading it again yesterday in the welly public library...he claimed his success had a lot to do with individual drive to succeed.

so i guess at the end of the day tennis authorities can only do so much.

it's about individual teenagers being obsessed with working hard.

pat rafter is a good example...in late 96 he realised he had to work hard.
