Exclamation Nadal's biography - What's your take on this?

He's still young to have an autobiography IMO. How about you?

Not as ridiculous as Miley Cyrus having an Autobiography. Still a bit early though.

Re: Nadal's biography - What's your take on this?

in his defence he's packed allot in a young life....do you know if it's an autobiography or a biography...'cause Roger's had a couple of biographies written about him but he hasn't penned his own yet....

Re: Nadal's biography - What's your take on this?

Hold on, he's not writing it himself, is he? Toni and co better keep him away from the English translation.

The guy's got more than enough reasons to have a "Nadal: The Story so Far"-style book. Was Murray even twenty when his came out? Anyway, I don't care how young an eminent sportsperson is when they start churning out these self-chronicles. My problem is with how unrevealing and uninteresting such books often are.

Re: Nadal's biography - What's your take on this?

It's my understanding that it's not really an autobiography - it's more like quotes and anecdotes about his career so far.

The money from the book is going to Nadal's charitable foundation. A worthy cause actually.

That's the only good thing about 'biographies' like these. Usually just an easy way of making heaps of $$$$$$$$$$$$$$ with crappy writing on stuff that about every long-time fan already knows about his/her fav.
Glad to hear that it is for a good cause.

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Re: Nadal's biography - What's your take on this?

Roger Moore just released his autobiography and the guy´s 81 years old. Now THAT`S when there are actually some stories to tell! It´s just pointless to release one before 30..

Sometimes mystery is better than revelation.

Does he think it might improve something --- fan base, contracts, private life, bankbook or what?
