My Life with Lew

New or Used: $9.95
Jennie Hoad is the widow of Lew Hoad, the tennis player who died tragically from leukemia in 1994. Hoad played some great tennis, but was a misunderstood man, seldom free of back pain, but he won Wimbledon twice, three Wimbledon doubles, a French, Italian and Australian single and 17 of his 19 Davis Cup matches. He attracted a fee of $146,000 to switch from amateur to professional tennis but it drove him from Australia. At his death, Hoad's investments in a long haulage truck, service station, milk run, mining company, racehorses, a gold mine in Kal and a Gold Coast hotel had all but dried up. Jennie Hoad's book charts her life with a tennis legend and also tells the story of her life nursing her husband through his illness to his terrible, prolonged death and subsequent failed investments.
