For many tennis fans, it was impossible to think of Todd Woodbridge without Mark Woodforde. Or Woodforde without Woodbridge. ‘The Woodies’ – as they were universally known – were tennis’ greatest double act, winners of 11 Grand Slam titles and, to the public eye, practically inseparable. In his self-titled autobiography, Woodbridge offers a different insight into his life. Yes, he was a terrific doubles player alongside his great mate, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. As well as the challenges he had to overcome to become a top tennis pro, and stay there, Woodbridge opens up on personal issues such as his brother’s battle with drugs and the loss of two close friends. He also gives his take on greats of the game such as Agassi, Federer, Edberg and Sampras. The book is completed with 21 top tips for tennis players.
