Good mix of match and personal life insight to Serena Williams

A bit hard to get through, if you don't know anything about Tennis, but the underlying tones and message make the moments of confusion worth it.

Average, but also inspiring, even if leaning towards cliche.

I enjoyed reading about Serena. Getting a glimpse into the psyche of a world class athlete was interesting.

This is a nice insight to the life of Serena Williams. It is not very in depth, but gives a good perspective on where she comes from and on her relationship with her family. It is a good read that will help to understand this great athlete a little bit more as a person.
