At 34 years of age GREGORY HOWE quit his job as a teacher in London to pursue his childhood dream of becoming a world-ranked pro tennis player. To get a world ranking you first need to earn a point on the ATP World Tour, and this absorbing book charts Greg’s progress as he travels the world for a year in search of that elusive first point. His travels take him to Australia, Scandinavia, Africa and Asia, and he gets to rub shoulders with many of the game’s leading players as well as dozens of other journeymen like himself. Will he make it into the world rankings by beating rivals who are often half his age?
