Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-6 An important contribution to female sports figure biographies. Even children with little or no knowledge of tennis will find Knudson's biography of the tennis superstar to be interesting and appealing. The narrative reveals Martina's natural talent for sports, her drive and determination to succeed, the problems and pressures she faced in her quest and her sensitivity as a person. Martina's development into a world-class tennis player is described, as well as her early years, her defection from Czechoslovakia, influential people in her life and her own hard work that carried her to her present status. Specific incidents lend insight into her motivation and commitment to tennis. Controversial aspects of Martina's life have been omitted. Janice C. Hayes, Middle Tennessee State University, Murfreesboro
