Tennis from the lens of one of the legends

“A Champion’s Mind” by Pete Sampras

This book shows the technical side of tennis, and what pro players – or to be exact, Pete Sampras – are thinking about during the game and what strategies they are employing (and why). It also shows the human side of the sport and the emotional cocktail that comes with the job, especially as tennis’ no 1 ranked player in the world. The cherry on top is the 1990s tennis scene that Sampras re-lived and being nostalgic about in his writing, which brings fond memories for me too. In short, it is an insightful book about the world of tennis that is very enjoyable to read.
