A major biography of the greatest men´s tennis player of the modern era.
Widely regarded as one of the greatest ever sportspeople, Roger Federer is a beloved as a phenomenon, a symbol of enduring greatness and yet is intensely private. But his path from temperamental, bleach-blond teenager with dubious style sense to one of the greatest, most self-possessed and elegant of competitors has been a long-running act of will, not destiny.
Based on 20 years of one-on-one interviews with Federer and with wide access to Federer´s inner circle, including his coaches and key rivals, legendary sports reporter Christopher Clarey´s account will be a must-read retrospective for the loyal sports fan, and anyone interested in the inner workings of unfaltering excellence. The Master tells the story of Federer´s life and career on both an intimate and grand scale.
