From his childhood, to winning Wimbledon this year, Murray shares his thoughts on the pivotal phases of his playing career with glimpses into his personal world, support team, motivators and physical battle to get to the top.
Sauce on the Murray eye-opener are Andy's photo captions, all of which (and there are many) give you his personal insight into the moments many of us witnessed as we watched his career unfold. Andy Murray: Seventy-seven: My Road to Wimbledon Glory
Occam's Racquet is a quirky, easy read that will help any aspiring player to keep it simple. This is not a super technical tome but more of a philosophical chat that will help a developing player not to over think – a common problem that breathes error into anyone's game. Author/tennis pro Marcus Paul Cootsona's tips would make good pre-match flash cards.
Good/funny insight too into new players that don't "dress" to play. Cootsona has clearly seen every type of player out there on his court. His read/profile on each is dead on. Occam's Racquet: 12 Simple Steps To Smarter Tennis
