Vince Spadea's new book!

from TENNIS WEEK :


Break Point: The Secret Diary of a Pro Tennis Player



Photo By Fred Mullane By Vince Spadea and Dan Markowitz

Editor's Note: Veteran Vince Spadea has collaborated with Tennis Week contributing writer Dan Markowitz to write a behind-the-scenes look at life on the ATP Tour. Titled "Break Point: The Secret Diary Of A Pro Tennis Player", the book will be released in either the spring or early summer of 2006.


The strong-willed Spadea has spent his career saying, rapping and achieving the unthinkable. Rebounding from a record 21-match losing streak that saw his 2000 year-end ranking plummet to No. 229, Spadea made a strong comeback. In 2004, Spadea claimed his first ATP title in his 223rd career tournament in Scottsdale, posted a personal best 40-win season and concluded the season ranked a year-end best No. 19.

Currently ranked No. 76, Spadea is now working with former Wimbledon winner and Beverly Hills Hotel teaching pro Alex Olmedo in training for the 2006 season.

Re: Vince Spadea's new book!

Anyone know if this literary masterpiece will be published outside of the States - as I would love to read it?

If they don't, I will gladly mail you my copy when I'm done. When school is done for the semester next Thursday, I may read it...I'll need a laugh.

Re: Vince Spadea's new book!

Oh wait...saw that it wasn't coming out until the spring or summer.

We'll just have to wait to hear all of Vince's "secrets".

Somehow I can imagine what some of them are - but I think it would be entertaining to read.
