Paul McNamee is very intense, has loads of nervous energy, can be annoying and brilliant at almost the same time, is extremely competitive, and has an undeniable love and passion for the sport of tennis. Hey, that sounds a lot like me!"-John McEnroe, from the introductionPaul McNamee is a legendary figure in Australian tennis. From his early days as a talented Melbourne teenager, McNamee became a top international player, conquering Wimbledon and the Australian Open with his doubles partner, Peter McNamara. Along the way he shared a court with such luminaries as Rod Laver, Martina Navratilova, John McEnroe, and Bjorn Borg.Just as important have been his contributions to the evolution of the sport: as the driving force behind the Hopman Cup and the reinvention of the Australian Open (he was its CEO until 2006), and as a coach. McNamee continues to be a strong influence on the international game: he coached the winner of the 2013 Wimbledon ladies' doubles, Taiwanese champion player Hsieh Su-wei.Publishing to coincide with the US Open in 2014,Game Changer is a book for everyone who enjoys the game and anyone who has wondered about the locker-room antics and the fun and drama behind the management of major tournaments.This is Paul McNamee's story-candid, compelling, and insightful. The story of an ever-changing life in tennis. "
Paul McNamee is the only tennis player to have changed from a one-handed to a two-handed backhand mid-career. He won five Grand Slam doubles titles and held the world number one ranking. McNamee was the driving force behind the Hopman Cup and the reinvention of the Australian Open.
