I felt this book was well written and researched, but not nearly as good as Monica's autobiography. There are some factual errors here and there, but overall this book is a good insight to Monica's career. There are also some black & white photos, which are a good touch. The important thing to discuss here is not what would have or might have been, nor the whole Graf-issue, but the quality of this book. It is pointless to have reviews which contain little to no help to fellow readers. That's why I'd recommend this book to any TRUE Monica fan.

I thought the book was okay but not great. I think what happened to Monica was tragic, but she played great in her first couple of tournaments when she returned but suffered a loss of form after winning the 1996 Australian Open. I think that loss of form was due to lack of conditioning. My point is how can she play so well at the 1995 Canadian Open and 1995 U.S. Open and play not as well since that time period. It was a bad situation but Steffi Graf was unfairly criticized by some tennis fans for the Seles attack by Gunther Parche, when in reality no sane fan would attack a rival of Graf's. Graf held her own against Seles, so the attack by this particular fan was irrational and pointless. It robbed the game of the best player in the world at the time and possibly someone that could have been the greatest player ever. Now Graf has to live with the stigma that she only regained the top spot because of the attack, when in reality we will never know if Graf could have regained the top spot if the attack never happened.

It is a great book! You have done a great job. It is perfect that you've included a lot of information. You have written about Monica's childhood, what was just perfect. There was also a lot of information about how Monica was training, the way she was winning her tournaments. Everybody who is interested in Monica (tennis), even if you are not you WILL ENJOY THIS BOOK!!!!
