Abstract: The initial stages of the training process and the first official competitions are crucial for the future career of a young tennis player. It is a make or break period filled with great expectations, but also threatened by some tricky situations that can come up in certain circumstances, when wrong decisions are made and an unbearable pressure is put on the emerging players. Renowned sports journalist and famous comedy writer and actor, Adrian Fetecău describes his experience as parent of a young tennis player in a book which reveals some of the unpleasant aspects of a sport that attracts millions of people around the world. The author makes us see beyond the glamorous image constructed around a sport that is a continuous striving to overcome not only the opponents, but also one’s own limits. It is a book about the struggle to succeed on your own and about the efforts, hopes and disilussions marking the life of a young tennis player.
