Sounds like it's more of a cookbook than a biography.

it isn't a biography, it talks about what food to eat to achieve success in sport.

And did you notice double meaning in the title? Serving a dish as well as serving in tennis.

Yeah, nice play on words. I hope Todd Martin didn't write the foreword.

Todd Martin helped him "serve" it up.

Any vegetarian recipes from the Dalai Lama?

Biographies should be published after the career is over, not while it in full effect. Bad timing.

Although i really enjoyed Nadal's bio, and i really like Novak - i don't think he has enough history to make this book very interesting/significant. Time will show.

[edit: It's not about tennis, just ignore that part:-)]

"Serve" is also very close to "Serb" -- "Serb to Win"

And to think how much time we spend researching our news items for the front page here at TF! Perhaps I should write in and introduce them to a little thing called google.com. Tongue

"Serve" is also very close to "Serb" -- "Serb to Win"

Yes, many of those "ser*" starting words in English language are derived from the name of No1e's nation but it is a long story that is not tennis related.

Except that first two shots in tennis are called first serb and second serb. Wink

It is not biography, it is rather how No1e enhanced his performance after changing his diet in second half of 2010 (and for those who mentioned Todd Martin, it is several months after No1e stopped working with Todd.)

I don't think Kieran will be celebrating the royal baby being an Irishman. But we are thinking of making a gluten-free cake to celebrate. If only I had Nole's new cookbook to hand.

Yes sure, you didn't watch news last year when queen visited Ireland. They were all so excited about it and many shredded some tears too. I believe Kieran was among them.

The book is not for people who are healthier than tennis #1.

Here it is on amazon so people can read the description. Together with postage the book doesn't cost more than couple of decent magazines.
