This book is based on an in-depth filmed conversation between Howard Burton and Janko Tipsarevic, who is a former professional tennis player with a career-high singles ranking of world no. 8 and founder and CEO of Tipsarevic Tennis Academy in Belgrade, Serbia. 


This conversation gives behind-the-scenes insights on what it takes to achieve excellence in professional sports, what mindset is needed to reach one’s true potential and a penetrating and inspirational window into the psychology of professional tennis that resonates with all of us.

On Nietzsche and Tennis - The dangers of too much perspective

Lost Opportunities - Reflections on vacuous press conferences

Commitment - More than just the hours

Breaking Through - Leaving nothing back

Tennis as a Team Sport - Davis Cup and doubles

Achieving Potential - Coaching and talent

Winner Take All? - Spreading the wealth—or not?
