    Hardcover ´ Trophy Son ePUB ´ trophy kindle, Trophy Son PDFEPUBAs I was reading I had the distinct impression Trophy Son was autobiographical rather than a work of fiction it felt so authentic Not being a tennis fan I could easily have been convinced Anton Stratis the protagonist was a former world number one reflecting on his life growing up and being coached by his obsessive father

    Hardcover ´ Trophy Son ePUB ´ trophy kindle, Trophy Son PDFEPUBAn intriguing story a young man whose entire life has revolved around a domineering father and the sport of tennisSUMMARY Anton never got to choose tennis it was his father's plan for him from the moment he was born His dad had been an Olympic athlete and wanted fame and glory for his son Anton left school after eight grade to play tennis full time He'd spend seven hours a day on their backyard court in Radnor Pennsylvania with dad slamming tennis balls at him That would be followed by hours of tennis strategy weight training and watching match films In the winter the family would rent a house in Florida so Anton could continue the same daily routine By the time he was fourteen Anton could easily beat college players Occasionally his dad would take him to nearby college courts to hustle matches with college team players for moneyAnton aspires for greatness but detests the fact that the choice was not his to make In his mind tennis in only about hate and suffering

    Hardcover ´ Trophy Son ePUB ´ trophy kindle, Trophy Son PDFEPUBI found Trophy Son to be a quick and pleasant read It is a novel about living a life filled with expectations both self imposed and those that are thrust upon us by others The story takes place in the world of competitive tennis and is predominantly a tale about a young man and his attempts at finding himself while being pushed mentally physically and ethically to his limits It is a story that I think anyone can relate to in some way and it was certainly an eye opener for me into
