'Scott is a walking testament to what the human spirit is capable of.' - Andre Agassi'I had matchpoints on Roger Federer, the best player in the world. Of course I was nervous. But my mind was never clearer: I'm going to step up and go for it. I'm not going to walk off this court on his terms. I'm going to walk off on my terms. And that's what I did. But not in the way I expected....' Scott Draper's entire sporting career was not what he expected. Never did he think his toughest opponents would include obsessive compulsive disorder and the cystic fibrosis he watched his wife Kellie die from in 1998, leaving him a widower at age 25. He never expected to play for two years in a fog of grief. Scott lost his motivation to play tennis, ate and drank too much and finally began working through his grief on the golf course. Several years on, Scott is a new man. He's found love and married again, retired from tennis after winning the mixed doubles at the 2005 Australian Open with Samantha Stosur. Scott's career now ranges across tennis commentary and achieving his aim of success on the US golf tour. Enhanced by commentary from his sports psychologist and mate Michael Fox, Scotty Draper's life story, Too Good, is both heartbreaking and inspiring.
