Synopsis: A confessional story that reads like fiction, this is the true story of a famed tennis star who went from being ranked fourth in the world, dueling the sport?s greatest players to lying to police in several countries to avoid jail. Roscoe Tanner?s life is a complicated story that include years of one-night stands with groupies, a private fortune amassed and then lost, multiple failed marriages and relationships, business plans that fizzled, fleeing to Europe for a last chance, the pounding on the door by two German detectives that led to an involuntary stay in the Karlsruhe jail, and, ultimately, finding redemption. Double Fault is Tanner's story-arrests, cons, lies, and all in an attempt to share it with others to prove that when you hit bottom you can still pick yourself up, dust yourself off and keep moving forward.
From the Publisher: "Roscoe Tanner vividly shares how easy it is to lose one’s way in the world of professional sports. I commend him for being so candid with a story that reminds us that no matter where we’ve been or what we’ve done, it’s never too late to seek redemption." —Michael Chang, the youngest Grand Slam winner in history at the age of 17
