Vijay Amritraj - An Autobiography


In this fascinating autobiography, Vijay Amritraj, one of India's top tennis stars, tells the story of his life; how as a child his introduction to tennis was at the insistence of his mother and father, who made great sacrifices and showed tremendous strength of will to give the Amritraj brothers, with the help of Rama Rao, the coach, the essential grounding in tennis which would take them to peaks of achievement.
Amritraj tells all; his Davis Cup triumph, his appearance on the centre court of Wimbledon, his career as a tennis player all over the world, his acting in the James Bond movie, Octopussy, and the various enterprises started by him. Included are delightful episodes of his finding a bride, family vignettes of his brothers, and nostalgic mentions of the warm family cocoon which always offered him warmth and strength, and still does.
Amritraj adds thoughtful chapters on Indian Tennis, the all-time greats of tennis and tennis politics.
