Pete Sampras is arguably the greatest tennis player ever, a man whose hard-nosed work ethic led to an unprecedented number one world ranking for 286 weeks, and whose prodigious talent made possible a record-setting fourteen Grand Slam titles. While his more vocal rivals sometimes grabbed the headlines, Pete always preferred to let his racket do the talking. Until now. In A Champion’s Mind, the tennis great who so often exhibited visible discomfort with letting people “inside his head” finally opens up. An athletic prodigy, Pete resolved from his earliest playing days never to let anything get in the way of his love for the game. But while this single-minded determination led to tennis domination, success didn’t come without a price. The constant pressure of competing on the world’s biggest stage—in the unblinking eye of a media machine hungry for more than mere athletic greatness—took its toll. Here for the first time Pete speaks freely about what it was like to possess what he calls “the Gift.” He writes about the personal trials he faced—including the death of a longtime coach and confidant—and the struggles he gutted his way through while being seemingly on top of the world. Among the book’s most riveting scenes are an early devastating loss to Stefan Edberg that led Pete to make a monastic commitment to delivering on his natural talent; a grueling, four-hour-plus match against Alex Corretja during which Pete became seriously ill; fierce on-court battles with rival and friend Andre Agassi; and the triumphant last match of Pete’s career at the finals of the 2002 U.S. Open. In A Champion’s Mind, one of the most revered, successful, and intensely private players in the history of tennis offers an intimate look at the life of an elite athlete. From the Hardcover edition.

DIV Pete Sampras is arguably the greatest player tennis has ever seen. A man whose hard-nosed work ethic led to an unprecedented No. 1 world ranking for 286 consecutive weeks, and whose prodigious talent made possible an as yet unbroken 14 Grand Slam record. Yet while more vocal rivals often grabbed the headlines, Pete gave everything on the court, revealing little outside it. Now, in A Champion’s Mind, this very private champion, who so often recoiled from letting the world ‘inside his head’, finally opens up. Here, for the first time, Pete speaks candidly about the personal trials he faced; the single-minded determination crucial to survival in the topflight; and the pressure of competing under the unblinking gaze of a media machine hungry for more than mere athletic prowess. He describes the titanic matches fought, the personalities and the rivalries – a devastating early loss to Stefan Edberg, and his consequent monastic commitment to the game; Davis Cup doubles with a fiery John McEnroe; a gruelling, four-hour US Open quarterfinal against Alex Corretja, ending with a tie-break and Pete on a drip; and of course Andre Agassi, arch-rival and friend, the player Pete faced at his first Grand Slam final and his last, 12 years later. Frank, insightful and passionate A Champion’s Mind is a unique and intimate account of what it takes to win. Pete Sampras was the youngest male player to win the US Open and holds 64 top level singles titles and two doubles. In 2005 TENNIS magazine named him the greatest player of the open era. Peter Bodo is a senior editor and chief columnist at TENNIS magazine. /div

Champion Mind Unbeatable Athlete So what separates the champions from the rest of the pack? Why do some underdog athletes topple the best in their sport almost daily? Is there a secret training method some of us don't know about it? There is only one tool that creates a champion truly and that is your mindset. You either choose to do what it takes physically and mentally every day to be a champion or you don't. Stop focusing on what others are doing and take a look at what you are not doing. Discover How To Become Elite This book is not full of complicated mental exercises or loaded with extravagant case studies. There is no need for all that if you haven't even mentally decided that you want to be a champion. Without that internal drive to wake up and do what it takes day in and day out regardless of how tough it may seem, you will not succeed. No matter how much raw athletic ability or God given talent you may seem to have, you can still have your butt handed to you by someone less “superior” any day of the week if they have a stronger desire to win. What you will discover inside are the tried and tested methods that champions have used forever. Do not get distracted by fancy talk and the latest technology. These champions did not have access to a tenth of what an athlete does today and yet their records still stand in many sports. An athlete's goals always seem to be focused on physical performance but what is discussed inside is improving mental performance. Mental training is becoming as important as physcial training and in some cases is the difference between winning and losing. Champion athletes have a mental toughness about them that is envied by their competitors. You become physcally strong by being mentally tough. The only difference between you and them is they mentally choose to be a champion. Master The Mental Art Of Being Elite There is a pile of work to do in order to be unbeatable and even that in itself is a false sense of security because you will be beaten someday. Beaten but not defeated. Do not look at being unbeatable as wins and losses but as an internal battle that determines whether you will rise to the occasion after being defeated, when the chips are down or you darn well don't feel like moving that day. Here is what you will discover inside in order to be the person you need to be to become a champion: Why perseverance will beat potential every day of the week Why you might be in the wrong sport entirely and yes it could be your parent's fault How visualization is often the difference between excellence and mediocre performances How to clear your mind and be in the moment And much more... Who you think you are determines what you can achieve, every time without fail. “Champion Mind Unbeatable Athlete” does away with sugar coating what is needed to be a champion and gets to the heart of it. Champions are not born; they are created from the inside out and then delivered on the field. Would You Like To Know More? Purchase today now and start being the champion you were born to be.
