Format: Hardcover
From the moment Janet Johnson's childish skill with a tennis racquet attracted the the attention of a professional, tennis became Janet's one love. There were the years of gruelling practice to perfect the natural aptitude of the girl, followed by victories at Wimbledon and in the United States tennis championships. The shy,awkward girl from the country became a poised, confident young lady. Rodney Davis, Janet's childhood friend, played an important part in Janet's victories with his advice on tennis strategy, but when he asked Janet to give up her championship and marry him, she was faced with the biggest decision in her life. In making her decision, Janet learned her hardest lesson. Champion's Choice is filled with the tense and vivid drama of championship tennis, and the thrilling story of a "Cinderella" championship.
