Published by John Blake

Roger Federer’s astounding, all-round ability on grass and clay has made him one of the greatest players the game has ever seen. With 13 Grand Slam wins and an Olympic gold medal under his belt, the Swiss star has already achieved legendary status. This authoritative and affectionate biography traces Federer’s rise from his first tentative strokes with a racket through his early years in an elite French academy and his struggles with the sudden death of his first real coach and mentor. It also examines how he bounced back from one of the most challenging periods of his career when a serious illness and a dip in form caused him to break his run of successive Wimbledon championship wins and lose his number-one spot to rival Rafael Nadal. Roger’s professionalism and charm, as well as the time he devotes to his charitable foundation, have won him huge amounts of respect from his fellow sportsmen and tennis professionals alike. This is a candid look at one of the most winning and dynamic figures in modern sport.
