My next book, dear reader, builds on the stellar success of my first publication.
Where my first volume gave you invaluable instructions on how to win at Dumbledon, develop a personality and lead your local club to previously unimaginable heights, my second volume in what is shaping up to be a truly encyclopaedic compendium of skills, insights and wisdom from the outer reaches of the tennis universe, focuses on the even harder challenge: the second grand slam.
It also offers some seriously sought after advice on perhaps the most elusive of all holy grails: the mysteries of the heart.
Philosophers have mused lyrical, musicians have waxed musically and scientists continue to try in vain to define the phenomenon of that thing that beats erratically under our Fred Perry singlets with their data, spreadsheets and formulae about the mysteries of the L word, but it is fair to say that none have come close to the experiences of the ageing tennis player.
There may be musical scientific philosophers who have applied the might of their unique knowledge to the L question but I am oblivious to them.
There is nothing quite like hearing about the experiences of the ageing tennis player when it comes to the L word and this book, dear reader, is guaranteed to transform your life (for the better) when it comes to assessing your prospects in the L department.
So, let’s continue our journey together with the immortal and prescient ‘Love All’.
Next stop: Melbourne!
