lmao that article reminds me of one of the interviews Mary did after one of her matches at Roland Garros this year.

Quote:
Q. Just abbreviate how you felt then, the devastation of not being able to play, to getting here where you look like you're almost in top form again.
MARY PIERCE: Yeah, thank you.

You know, it's been interesting, you know. Definitely in my book you'll know all about it... no, I'm just kidding (laughing).
lmao maybe Mary is teasing us, but i'd love to see Mary do a book.

A Mary Pierce fan through and through,
But admires Amélie Mauresmo greatly.

------------------------------

We love you Mary !

I hope she does write a book, as I recall she also touched upon the subject during the US Open so I think it might well happen someday... at least I hope so!

She talked about that several times, it might be a good idea, I already have a book who's talking about Mary but it's not a biography, a journalist is talking about the best french atlhets and Mary is one of them (by the way he said he likes her very much ...)

Biography hum... yes I really like this

The Times of India

Mary Pierce pens a tell-all

PARIS: An abusive father overshadows her as a teen. But she shoots to fame as a young woman, only to suffer career-threatening injuries.

Just when the world had written her off, she stages a comeback and makes a nation proud.

Sound like good book material?

"It would make a really amazing story, that's for sure," Mary Pierce said.

For now, she said she has "no idea" if there's an autobiography in her future. But if she undertook a book, Pierce said she would expose herself and write about the bad times as well as the good.

"I think it could also help other people," said Pierce, who has rediscovered her peak form at the age of 30.

When she faces Justine Henin-Hardenne in the French Open final today, Pierce will be the oldest women's Grand Slam finalist since Martina Navratilova was runner-up at Wimbledon in 1994 at age 37.

Troubled as a teen by a tumultuous relationship with her father, who was banned by the WTA Tour for four years, Pierce rose to third in the rankings at age 20 when she won the 1995 Australian Open.

The next breakthrough came in 2000, when the Roland Garros title helped her finally win over French fans who had jeered her in the past and mocked her American accent.

Injuries then sent her sinking out of the top 200, and next week she'll return to the top 20 for the first time since June 2001. She has been reconciled with her father and speaks warmly of the family support she receives.

"I do feel like I've been stretched to my limits," Pierce said. "But I think that's where you have the greatest chances for growth."

Me too -I think you mean "Ma Vie Cote court, Cite Jardin", the French-language book published in 1995, don't you Mark? I was at Eastbourne this week, and I mentioned Mary to the man who runs "The Tennis Bookshop" which has a stall there every year, and he told me that Mary dislikes that book so much that when she last played Eastbourne (in 2002) she bought EVERY single copy of it that he had for sale, just to remove it from the public eye!!!
