An excerpt from the book:
She is the standard-bearer of women’s tennis as we know it right now, and any argument about the greatest player in the sport, either man or woman, must include her. Seemingly everything about her is a lightning rod for controversy, from her on-court outfits to her pointed post-match interviews after losses and whether her powerful serve and forehand are even good for women’s tennis.
Serena Williams is all of these things to all of these people. She has been the face of women’s tennis for more than two decades, having enjoyed an unprecedented amount of success that has come with an equally unprecedented amount of scrutiny by both supporters and detractors alike. Few have been able to reach her level professionally, and fewer still can understand the weight she has carried as an African-American at the pinnacle of a sport so long dominated by white people.
She had a unique upbringing alongside older sister and fellow star Venus Williams while under the watchful eye of her outspoken and controversial father, Richard Williams, as well as her mother, Oracene Price. Serena Williams has brought many things to the WTA Tour, far more good than bad, and she has not lacked for attention at any point in her standout career. The sport has made her a worldwide star; her race has made her an ambassador for African-Americans and her philanthropy while doing both has made her a role model who is constantly in demand.
The holder of an Open Era-record 23 Grand Slam titles and 72 overall WTA Tour titles, current fiancée and expecting mother, Serena Jemeka Williams has lived quite the extraordinary life in just under 35 years.
