Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 4-8-A biography of the surprise winner of the women's singles division of the United States Open, Serena Williams, and her sister Venus. Not since Althea Gibson has U.S. tennis seen female African Americans having such an impact on the sport. Seven chapters with short, chatty sentences describe the young women's focus on the game and the influence of their father/coach in their rise as winners of Grand Slam tournaments. The matches-wins and losses-along with how these young women motivate and sustain one another in their growth and development are clearly written in engaging prose. A few black-and-white photographs are included but they do not highlight the text in their placement. A glossary of terms, a description of how tennis is played and scored, and information about playing surfaces are appended. This background is useful for readers with little or no knowledge of the game. Adolescents interested in women athletes or in tennis will find the story of these sisters appealing.-Janice C. Hayes, Middle Tennessee State University, Murfreeboro
