But Seriously

But Seriously

Author: John McEnroe Format: Hardback Release Date: 16/06/2016

Over a decade after his international number one bestseller SERIOUS, John McEnroe is back and ready to talk once again. Since his hit book, he's maintained a huge presence as a commentator at Wimbledon and other Grand Slam tournaments. He has continued to compete on the court, winning the ATP Champions Tour a record six times, and has played in charity events around the globe. More surprising are the calls from TV producers, inviting John to riff on his famous hot temper in cult shows such as 30 ROCK and CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM - and his little-known passion for American contemporary art. The beloved, controversial and respected tennis legend reveals even more from his life and career, with the signature style that has made John McEnroe the enduring cultural figure and icon he is. As part of a tiny elite of top-ranking tennis players, John McEnroe has lived and experienced what very few people could ever imagine. His status as an elder statesman of international tennis is undisputed, but what of the challenges beyond the court? How did he succeed in coming to terms with life as an ex-champion, and adjust to his new vocation as a broadcaster and gallerist? In following McEnroe's personal struggle to reinvent himself, confronting a few demons along the way, BUT SERIOUSLY blends memoir and motivational writing in a manner which both disquiets and reassures in the author's original and unadulterated voice. The result is a personal odyssey, a mixture of anecdote and reflection which re-evaluates the meaning of success.

John McEnroe enjoyed tremendous success at all levels of tennis, and he owns 77 career singles titles, including 7 Grand Slams. He joined the circuit in 1978 and it took him only three years to attain the No. 1 ranking. The 1980 Wimbledon final, between McEnroe and Bjorn Borg, is considered by many tennis experts to be the best match ever, a five-set thriller which McEnroe avenged the following year for his first Wimbledon title. In doubles, McEnroe is recognised as the best player of all time. He was ranked No. 1 for a record 257 weeks and captured a total of 74 titles, including 8 Grand Slams. Still an active player, McEnroe is now an outstanding tennis commentator and broadcaster for the BBC and other national networks. This autobiography, his first, covers an awesome tennis career, marriage to movie star Tatum O'Neal and where arguably the greatest tennis player of all time goes from here. This is SERIOUS.
