I have been reading the new Patrick McEnroe/Peter Bodo book. I like it though it's not as "confidential" (that's in the title, "Hardcourt Confidential") as I had hoped. I thought about Dan (Redhead) reading it as McEnroe talks about Blake and his stubbornness and unwillingness to change. Some good John McEnroe anecdotes in here like the time the brothers McEnroe played doubles together at the Paris indoors, benefited from a bad call against a French pair, had the crowd booing and jeering and Patrick said he got a glimpse of what it must feel like to be Johnny Mac. Interestingly, John seemed to relish it like he was giving a big middle finger to all the French fans. Also, a good anecdote about Agassi on that ill-fated Davis Cup team that lost to Ljubicic in 2005 in Carson, CA. He basically says Agassi not only bitched and moaned about the surface all week, but he mercilessly rode Bob Bryan (who was dating an actress and AA after the Brooke Shields debacle was apparently anti-actress) to the point where Bob Bryan really could not play well. He also writes that Sampras was in fact a cheapskate as Agassi infamously claimed in his book and gives a few examples, also revealing how in practice Sampras used to like to play for $500 a set....
