Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-8-Aronson describes the growth and stardom of the first African-American woman since Althea Gibson to be ranked in the top 10 tennis players in the world. Williams's focus on the game since the age of four, under her father's careful guidance, is described in the smooth-flowing, informative text. Readers are given glimpses into Williams's playful personality and competitive drive through descriptions of events in her life on and off the court. Each chapter is highlighted with excellent-quality, full-color photographs, many of which are action shots. Career tournament statistics through the fall of 1998 are appended. Tennis fans and students interested in contemporary sports figures will find this biography a smashing success.
