An excerpt from the book:
He is combustible while competitive; temperamental, yet oh so talented. He is prickly, yes, but a definite prodigy. The owner of a swashbuckling style he has ridden to success. He is controversial at times, sure, but a champion without a doubt. No one word is ever going to fully fit all of who Novak Djokovic is because the sum of all who he is transcends a mere one-word description. He is one of the greatest tennis players of his generation who has transcended into being one of the most impactful tennis players of any generation.
He has willed himself from a talented yet scrawny Serbian teenager into a multiple-time Grand Slam winner who has the chance to do the unthinkable – surpass Roger Federer’s record haul of Grand Slam titles, something once thought impossible for Federer himself to achieve.
But how did he get here from there? How did the tennis player adored by many with chants of “No-le” arrive at the crossroads of greatness in a sport in which he has shared traits of both its heroes and villains? How has he come to thrive at a time where the division is enjoying some of its greatest depth of talent in its extensive history?
Sacrifices were made by both him and his family. There were the perseverance and persistence to improve, first to simply be one of the “Big Four” who has defined the current state of men’s tennis, and then to hold its throne. There was also an emotional maturing, one that has created a grounding in both his professional and personal worlds which helped him reach the pinnacle of his sport as the number one ranked player in the world and stay among its elite for a prolonged period.
