Chi è il coach? Basket, Calcio, Rugby e ogni altro sport, guardano a questo ruolo come a un crocevia obbligato verso la ricerca del successo di una squadra o di un singolo atleta. Da molti anni, anche il tennis si è tenacemente appropriato dei suoi servigi, delegandolo a mentore di atleti di buon livello. Una figura che a detta di molti fa il buono e il cattivo tempo nella crescita dei giocatori, spesso mitizzata altre volte bistrattata e comunque legata alla realtà dei nudi risultati. Restano numerose però le domande sul suo operato! È una figura realmente utile o è solo una moda? Il grande giocatore è anche un grande coach? È un insegnante in grado di dare le dritte giuste o è più un factotum? E soprattutto: è il coach a fare il giocatore o il giocatore a fare il coach? Scritto con spigliata ironia e con grande conoscenza del mestiere il libro di Massimo D’Adamo offre risposte, mettendo a nudo il rapporto fra coach e i giocatori, i genitori e il sistema tennis nel suo insieme. Ma getta anche un occhio oltre il campo per carpire le sue curiosità di uomo, quelle che si accendono verso persone e fatti nei quali si imbatte nel suo “vagabondare per mestiere”. Ne segue le tracce in un via vai che non concede soste, alla continua scoperta degli altri e di se stesso, comunque attratto dai segreti grandi e piccoli che possano condurlo al cospetto del Sacro Tennis!

Diciotto grandi firme del tennis - scrittori, giornalisti e campioni (fra cui Adriano Panatta, Paolo Bertolucci, Stefano Meloccaro, Daniele Azzolini, Dario Torromeo e Stefano Semeraro) - raccontano l'ultima impresa di Roger Federer. Ognuno dei 18 trionfi nelle prove del Grand Slam è analizzato in un'apposita sezione da Fabrizio Fidecaro. Il cammino verso la leggenda dello straordinario fuoriclasse di Basilea è narrato passo passo dal primo centro in un Major, a Wimbledon nel 2003, fino alla meravigliosa impresa negli Australian Open 2017, al rientro dopo sei mesi di lontananza dai campi. Nel mezzo, la lunga egemonia sui prati londinesi, la cinquina agli US Open e il titolo conquistato nel 2009 sulla terra del Roland Garros. Il tutto senza trascurare l'intensa rivalità con Rafael Nadal e quelle con Roddick, Djokovic e Murray. Un libro che intende celebrare la fantastica storia di un campione che, con il talento purissimo, il carisma unico e l'indiscutibile fair play, è stato in grado di avvicinare altennis folle sterminate di appassionati, regalando loro profonde emozioni che hanno travalicato i confini della semplice impresa sportiva.

<p><b>#1 NATIONAL BESTSELLER</b></p><p>Far more than a superb memoir about the highest levels of professional tennis, <i>Open</i> is the engrossing story of a remarkable life.<br /> <br />Andre Agassi had his life mapped out for him before he left the crib. Groomed to be a tennis champion by his moody and demanding father, by the age of twenty-two Agassi had won the first of his eight grand slams and achieved wealth, celebrity, and the game’s highest honors. But as he reveals in this searching autobiography, off the court he was often unhappy and confused, unfulfilled by his great achievements in a sport he had come to resent. Agassi writes candidly about his early success and his uncomfortable relationship with fame, his marriage to Brooke Shields, his growing interest in philanthropy, and—described in haunting, point-by-point detail—the highs and lows of his celebrated career.</p><br /><br /><br /><i>From the Trade Paperback edition.</i>
