Serena Williams is the most successful tennis player – male or female – of the modern, professional era, with more Grand Slams than either Steffi Graf or Roger Federer. She’s a 23-times Grand Slam Champion and ranked #1 over 10 consecutive years.
Always a fierce competitor, her story – which began on the cracked public courts of Compton, Calif. – is also one of overcoming challenges through sheer determination, drive and talent.
In a new innovative illustrated biography by Mark Hodgkinson, a tennis author and journalist based in London, Serena's tennis is explored like never before: Stunning graphics explore her serving patterns, signature power ground strokes, and her movement – as well as showcasing her astonishing records, spanning over two decades in the tennis elite.
Drawing on conversations with Serena over the course of her career, and on interviews with those closest to her, the book is an ultimate celebration of arguably the greatest tennis player of all time and, without question, a true global icon.
