Description

‘Serena Williams has fought her way back from a breakdown to reclaim three major tennis titles. If she now wins the US Open she will again be world number one. How did she do it?’
8 page edited extract, Guardian Weekend 29/8
‘Serena, though, as her memoir makes clear, wasn’t always Serena. Her book allows us to see how the younger half of the greatest sister act sport has known came out of the shadow of “V” through a process of intense self-invention’
Observer 13/9
‘Serena, though, as her memoir makes clear, wasn’t always Serena. Her book allows us to see how the younger half of the greatest sister act sport has known came out of the shadow of “V” through a process of intense self-invention’
Guardian Weekly 9/10
‘Williams’s views on who is best in the world could hardly be plainer; you only have to look at the jacket of her autobiography… to see that she doesn’t tend to suffer from self-doubt’
Telegraph 26/10
‘An insight into the mind and life of a world-class tennis pro. Serena’s sensitive style adds depth to her incredible story’
Now magazine 10/11/09
‘In the “gloomy funk” that engulfed her after the violent death of her sister Yetunde, Serena admits to growing to resent tennis and a lifetime of pleasing other people. “It’s like tennis had become a job for me instead of a passion, a joy, a sweet release,” she writes in her autobiography, Queen of the Court. She tried to play her way out of grief but it didn’t work. For months she didn’t leave her apartment in Los Angeles except to go to therapy’
Interview, Telegraph 11/11
‘In the book itself, conceived as equal parts memoir and inspirational tome, Williams assigns the five sisters roles, offering examples of how, as youngest, she’s always been family princess’
Scotland on Sunday 15/11
‘The world No 1 and top seed to win her fourth Wimbledon singles title, at 28 Serena Williams has not done badly for a kid who started off practising to the sound of gunfire in the Los Angeles ghetto, spent her early playing years in the shadow of her elder sister Venus, and was plagued by low self-esteem… Still, the pluses far outweigh the minuses. Serena’s search for her own identity, including visits to Africa to explore her roots, took time, but it has paid off triumphantly’
Book of the Week, 20/6

Présentation de l'éditeur

One of the biggest stars in tennis, Serena Williams has captured every major title. Her 2009 Australian Open championship earned her the number one world ranking for the third time in her illustrious career-and marked only the latest exclamation point in a life well and purposefully lived. As a young girl, Serena began training with an adult-size racquet that was almost as big as she was. Rather than dropping the racquet, Serena saw it as a challenge to overcome - and she has confronted every obstacle on her path to success with the same unflagging spirit.
From growing up in the tough, hardscrabble neighborhood of Compton, California, to being trained by her father on public tennis courts littered with broken glass and drug paraphernalia, to becoming the top women's player in the world, Serena has proven to be an inspiration to her legions of fans both young and old. Her accomplishments have not been won without struggle. She has been derailed by injury, criticized for her unorthodox approach to tennis, and was devastated by the tragic shooting of her older sister.
Yet somehow Serena always manages to prevail, both on and off the court. She's applied the same strength and determination that helped her to become a champion to her successful pursuits in philanthropy, fashion, television, and film.
In this compelling and poignant memoir, Serena takes an empowering look at her extraordinary life and what is still to come.

Format: Broché
Je regarde la photo de SW soulevant le trophée (une mitrailleuse lourde de 48,5 kilos)...Tranquille, les aisselles épilées, pas une goutte de sueur (Deocalibre 105 mm peut-être)...Métrosexuel en iable...Beau gars....

Ce sont donc les soeurs Tennis qui discutent :

"Tu sais quoi ?"

"Quoi ?"

"Je pense que notre entraîneur nous charge"

"Pourquoi ?"

"J'ai les poils des iocs qui poussent"
