Now, living on his boat, he is the new coach at a club on Key West?and into his life comes Clare Carras, a gorgeous woman married to a mysterious, wealthy husband apparently unconcerned about her wandering eye.

From Publishers Weekly
The Bollettieri Tennis and Sports Academy in Bradenton, Fla., has produced world-class tennis players Andre Agassi, Monica Seles and Mary Pierce and, in the case of Boris Becker, revitalized the career of a former star. In this captivatingly gossipy autobiography written with Schaap (Instant Replay), Bollettieri tells how he became the world's best tennis coach (his assessment) and how he winged it as an expert until he actually became one. He reveals details of his dealings with the difficult adolescence of Agassi, the grasping family of Seles and the unpleasant father of Pierce.
