Go behind the scenes of the ATP Tour with ATP Confidential: Behind the Scenes with the World's Greatest Tennis Players.

Building on the overwhelming popularity of the ATPtennis.com player blogs, this coffee table book features excerpts of posts made by the world's leading tennis players. The personalities of the game's biggest stars are showcased, including tennis' 1-2 punch of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.
ATP Confidential provides an insider's look at life on the professional tennis circuit from tour stops on five different continents. The 176-page book opens with Ivan Ljubicic ringing in 2006 at the players' party in Chennai, and follows with James Blake's time zone challenge in watching American football from Sydney, Tommy Robredo's victory striptease in Hamburg, Jurgen Melzer's adventures in a Casablanca bazaar and Robby Ginepri's adoration of Holly (a.k.a. Miss Waffle House USA). The book also features a special blog tribute to Andre Agassi, written by tennis' top journalists at the US Open.
Dmitry Tursunov's tales from Estoril, which earned the Russian blogging stardom, is a centerpiece of ATP Confidential.
Sports Illustrated's Jon Wertheim writes in the book foreword: "Tursunov's six-piece opus was an instant cult hit, a boundlessly entertaining, LOL funny mix of wit and insight that pulled back the curtain on professional tennis."
