Dear John : The John Lloyd Autobiography, Hardback Book

Dear John : The John Lloyd Autobiography Hardback



John Lloyd was the poster boy of British tennis - a former British number one, Grand Slam finalist, Wimbledon mixed-doubles champion and Davis Cup captain.

Remarkably, he and his two brothers, David (of leisure club fame) and Tony, all played in the singles championship at Wimbledon in the same year: a testament to the parents who believed in their sons' dreams as the boys batted tennis balls against a garage wall in Essex.

Told with humour and honesty, John's autobiography is filled with intimate insight and captivating tales of Hollywood celebrities, tennis icons, broadcasting greats and loves lost - from his marriage to the legendary Chris Evert and dealings with Donald Trump to his sobering battle with cancer and drug addiction at the heart of his family.

As the story unfolds, the John of today sends letters of advice to his former self in a yearnful act of 'if I only knew then what I know now'.

What we now know for certain is that John Lloyd has lived an extraordinary life.
