Yes, I didn't realise Roger was like he was as a child !!!

And I didn't know he and Marco were good friends when they were younger ! There is a lot I didn't know about Roger until I started reading it ! I think I am on Chapter 4 or 5

Yes...Roger & Marco have been mates for a long time. If you saw *Replay* he even talks about their days as junior players.

suktuen...its a pretty easy read. you shouldn't have any trouble.

It should be no problem to order it at your local book shop They can deliver you books even if they aren't published in your country.

I read the German issue of the book and really liked it You can notice that the author has followed Rogers career for many years and he has a very professional way to write.
I like it that you get to know more about Roger off the court without hurting his private life.
