To be honest I thought the book could have been much better, but I think that's true of a lot of tennis books. The strong parts were her struggles growing up from a poor family, the racial things she had to deal with, and most of all her fight with bulimia, a topic no other woman on tour has been so honest about.
She dishes a little dirt at Monica and others, such as Pam Shriver.
I laughed when she wrote she was much better than Helena Sukova.
It could have been longer IMO. Just when she gets ahold of a juicy subject she drops it and moves on. Perhaps my biases (white and male)
got in the way, but so do hers, because she goes on about racial stereotypes and then trots her own out. She doesn't want others prejudging her as a woman but then trashes men in general (and black men in particular) after talking about her divorce. I got the impression the divorce made her REALLY bitter.
The most interesting part to me was her on again/off again friendship with Lori McNeil. The paranoia towards Lori and the coach they shared is all too common in women's tennis. Mcneil was good friends with Robin Givens and Mike Tyson, but Zina doesn't discuss that.
Those are my scattered thoughts. It's a good read but will leave you wanting more and feeling very sad for Zina.
