“'Maria Sharapova’s Unstoppable May Just Be the Best Part of Her Comeback Tour.' . . . This is the bildungsroman of a controversial champion, a portrait of the athlete as an uncommonly driven young woman . . . It’s also a Horatio Alger–worthy tale of rags to riches, with a slightly nihilistic Russian twist. . . ” ―Julia Felsenthal, Vogue
"Everybody ought to read it.” ―Pam Shriver, tennis champion and ESPN commentator
"A fascinating and well-written (with the help of Vanity Fair journalist Rich Cohen) insight into her struggles, triumphs, obsession with Williams, Russian pessimism and the roots of that famous haughtiness." ―Simon Hattenstone, The Guardian
"Fiercely honest . . . a refreshing look at the tennis superstar’s rags-to-riches story." ―Hamptons
"The surprisingly compelling Unstoppable is at its best when recounting Sharapova’s fraught early life . . . It’s apt that Sharapova recruited non-fiction master Rich Cohen as her collaborator here. It’s Cohen’s polish that elevates Unstoppable." ―David Shaftel, The Financial Times
“A determined journey from the bitter cold and desolation of Siberia to the warm (at times burning) glow of international superstardom . . . All the big matches are relived in a speedy, engaging way, and her prose exudes confidence as she describes her ability to dominate her peers on the tour and how she came to be considered one of the greatest female players of the game. Her writing becomes more vulnerable, frustrated, and interesting when she explores her struggles with Serena Williams." ―Geoffrey Gray, Bookforum
"An inspiring memoir . . . Sure to satisfy longtime fans of women’s tennis." ―Booklist
"Insightful . . . Sharapova’s eloquent self-awareness provides a rare glimpse into the disorienting push and pull of a famous athlete’s life." ―Publishers Weekly
"Remarkable . . . An impressive immigration tale, an inspiring coming-of-age narrative, and a host of useful advice on navigating celebrity culture. Sharapova demonstrates consistent dedication and impressive wisdom for her age." ―Kirkus Reviews

I'm Maria's Fan in HK. No matter she won or lost, you can see pride in her eyes. That's attract me. You are living the way that my grandma told me to. I hope I can be as tough as you.
You are amazing to go through all this.
The illegal drug episode is also covered well. This is a drug that was in a pill that Maria had been taking for sometime and the WTA band it January 1, 2016 never notifying anyone that there was a new drug banded for tennis players. Just sent the illegal drug list out like nothing new just the plain old ordinary list. Which is really a joke by the WTA.
At any rate it was an enjoyable read. I am sure that after reading the book the people that are not fans of Maria Sharapova will still not be fans. But then again, they probably won't read the book anyway!
