Pressestimmen

Rafa: My Story is a terrific sporting memoir, full of memorable anecdotes and stamped with the authority of a ghostwriter who earned the complete trust of his subject. It is hard to imagine how Nadal could have done any more to get the best out of his own raw material. And it is to Carlin's enourmous credit that the book is a true reflection of the man, in every sense -- Ed Smith New Statesman Between them they have served up a winner -- Simon Redfern Independent Take a glimpse behind the curtain of both his private and professional life - it's as exciting as Rafa himself Woman's Own

Interessantes Buch. In Englisch definitiv noch besser, da evtl. Übersetzungsfehler ausgemerzt sind. Rafa ist einer der besten Tennisspieler und, für alle spätestens nach der Lektüre dieses Buches ersichtlich, auch ein sehr sympathischer, bodenständiger Mensch

4.0 von 5 Sternen The workings of a tennis machine 8. September 2011
Von Vikram Pyati - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
RAFA is a remarkable book which gives amazing insights into the mind of a tennis legend. The way he prepares before a game, his mental state during a game, his methods of handling the disappointments and the successes of the tennis court - all of this makes RAFA a fascinating read.

The book has a unique format in which the first person account by Nadal is interspersed with chapters by John Carlin. The chapters by Nadal mainly talk about some of the important matches of his fledging tennis career, starting with THE MATCH - the Wimbledon 2008 final; his surprisingly strong family ties and its impact on his game; his domineering uncle and coach for 20 years - Toni and of course, his never say die spirit which is visible in most of his matches, among other things.

As the chapters go on, the book slowly uncovers the duality of Rafael Nadal - the one on the tennis court and the other off it. The one on the court is a gladiator who fights till the end, never gives up, doesn't know what fear is and ruthlessly decimates his opposition. The one off the tennis court is a soft, insecure lad , a boy next door, who is scared of dog, who is uncomfortable driving a bicycle or a motorbike and one who is scared of flying in a helicopter ! The contrast cannot be more starker.

The importance he gives to his family and friends and in turn their impact on his game is mentioned throughout the book. After a remarkable year of 2008 when he won both French Open and Wimbledon and became No.1 for the first time, 2009 was a big let down, when he was dogged by injuries, when he lost in French Open for the first time and eventually lost the No.1 ranking. As he writes, this dip in his career was as much due to the separation of his parents as due to external factors like injuries and loss of form. In fact, according to him, the mental trauma he experienced due to his parent's separation was actually the root cause for most of his injuries during that time.

In the final part of the book he also mentions his rather strange relationship with his uncle and coach - Toni. Though he gives a lot of credit to Toni for installing in him the fighting spirit of a gladiator and making him the tennis player he is now, he also mentions couple of incidents where he thinks Toni crossed the line. There are nuggets spread throughout book about their relationship and if you connect the dots you feel as if Nadal is only 'tolerating' Toni because of his gratitude towards Toni for making him what he is now. But again, that is only my interpretation.

Overall, RAFA is an inspirational read. Through a living example the book tells that to succeed you have to make sacrifices, to succeed you need to have discipline and dedication, to succeed you have to fight till the last point. Nothing comes easy in this world, but if you put an honest effort, nothing is too difficult to achieve !

3.0 von 5 Sternen Rafa: Nice guy but skimps on insight 23. Oktober 2015
Von Bensonmum - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Rafa comes across as a pretty likable guy -as expected- but abundant insight in to his life is lacking. A bit heavy on match commentary -and I'm pretty tolerant of that- but after a while it got to be a grind. Some of the before-match Wimbledon discussion was interesting -actually taking us behind the scenes to a place most fans never see. More of that would have been great. Some of the info about his father was appreciated since he's so reserved in the player's box and leery of publicity. His father comes across as much more stable and savvy than the somewhat mercurial Uncle Tony. Rafa paints himself as a bit of a man-child but he's still pretty young. What would you expect? A fast and easy read but in the end a bit light on substance.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Loved and recommend. 15. Januar 2016
Von Fernando M. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I love tennis and already read several biographies from top players like Sampras, Agassi, Federer. It's interesting to see how different players face the game and the lifestyle. I enjoyed this one as much as Sampras and Agassi, would put Federer (read more than one) one step below them because it's not autobiography.

If you enjoy the game it's definitely a book to read from one of this generation masters. (I'm a Federer/Sampras fan so no bias here.)
5.0 von 5 Sternen A fantastic in depth story of a Tennis Great and a wonderful, and good, man 7. Februar 2015
Von Naziz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This is among the best biographical books I have read in a long time. The book is beautifully written and presents starkly and poignantly the story of one of the best Tennis players in history - Rafael Nadal. The writing is insightful and the reader is carried along on a rare journey enabling a first hand view of the making of a remarkable athlete, and one of the greatest tennis players in history. One learns about challenges that could have been insurmountable for most, and the unique importance of family support and love that allowed these barriers to be overcome. I could not put this book down. I began reading it because I have long admired this humble tennis great and wanted to know more about his life and his development as a great tennis player. As I finished the book I was so happy to know that my admiration was not misplaced and that Rafael Nadal is among the select few who truly deserve to be called GREAT! It is an uplifting and inspirational book and I recommend it most highly and without reservation.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Insights into the Mind of a Champion 3. April 2014
Von Sanat Sethi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This is easily one of the best biographies I have eve read. I am a huge fan of Rafa: never has an athlete engaged me more. To get to look into his mind was very sincerely an enlightening experience.

The book uses the 2008 Wimbledon against Roger Federer and the 2010 US Open against Novak Djokovic as it's backdrops, but delves into Rafa's entire life story, as well as the intertwined stories of those who surround him. The first half of each chapter is Rafa speaking, and the latter half is John Carlin giving us a birds-eye view on the same topics (with lots of great input from Rafa's family, team and coach). We learn virtually everything of significance in terms of how Rafa became the player he is. The most interesting parts to me were Rafa and Carlin's discussions about the relationship between Toni Nadal (his uncle and life-long coach) and Rafa, which seems to be the key to Rafa's unbelievable success.

I'm surprised this book isn't brought up more often by tennis analysts and commentators (I remember Open by Andre Agassi getting a lot more press when it came out), because it actually answers a lot of the questions and queries people have about Rafa and his entourage.

This will be a pleasant treat for anyone who is a student of exceptional performance in any field- this is not only for your tennis and Nadal fans. The mind of a winner is an intricate and exceptional, and I feel lucky to have been able to look into the mind of my favorite champion.
