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, and retired from tennis after winning the mixed doubles at the 2005 Australian Open with Samantha Stosur. Scott's career now ranges across tennis commentary, coaching Lleyton Hewitt, and achieving his aim of success on the U.S. golf tour within three years. Enhanced by commentary from his sports psychologist and friend Michael Fox, Scotty Draper's life story is both heartbreaking and inspiring.
