Product Description

The locker room is the epicenter of the ATP tour and Bill Norris lived in it for 35 years treating everyone from Rod Laver to Roger Federer. His knowledge and experience is unsurpassed and in this book Norris not only reveals insider stories of famous players he worked with in the Memoirs Section -- revealing how he managed to stay friends with both Jimmy Connors and John McEnroe who basically hated each other --but, in the Pain Department, the book offers vital and detailed advice on how to prevent, as well as treat, injuries suffered on court. There are tips on what shoe to buy, when and what to eat, as well as what exercises to do. Athletes of every discipline can learn from a man who started his career as sports medicine trainer and therapist for the New York Knicks and the New York Mets organizations. Bill, who now looks after aspiring teenage players from the Chris Evert and Rick Macci Academies in Florida as well as aging enthusiasts, has important advice for parents and warns against too much time on court for developing bodies. And, in a special chapter, Norris tells for the first time the real story of the nandrolone/steroid scandal that erupted on the ATP tour. Were the electrolyte tablets the source of 40 players suddenly testing positive? The answer should provide a lesson for drug testers everywhere. And, if anyone is having shoulder problems, the final chapter is handed over to a Bill Norris protege, Todd Ellenbecker, who is now a leading expert on that vital part of a tennis player's anatomy. If tennis is your game, or you just want to stay fit, Pain, Set & Match offers everything you need to know.
