Tennis star turned commentator John McEnroe will launch his new autobiography at Wimbledon's own BookFest.

The three time Wimbledon champion will chat to broadcaster John Inverdale about his new book "But Seriously" on June 29.

He says the book is about confronting his demons and his struggle to re-invent himself after a career as a professional tennis player.

Mr McEnroe has never shied away from airing his outspoken views as a match commentator and analyst at Wimbledon and other Grand Slam tournaments, or from recreating the immortalised "you cannot be serious" moment from 1981.

He continues to compete on the court, and has won the ATP Champions a record six times, as well as travelling around the world to play in charity events.

Tickets for the event at Collyer Hall, King's College School in Wimbledon cost £25 and include a copy of the book. They are available now from

Wimbledon BookFest will run in October for the eleventh year and has now launched the full program online. Guests such as Salman Rushdie, James Bond writer Anthony Horowitz, and Girl With a Pearl Earring author Tracy Chevalier are among the speakers for the festival, which will take place on Wimbledon Common.
