Anyone read this? I'm half-way through it, and to be quite honest I'm quite enjoying it. :) Packed with loads of interesting bits of useless info. :D

oh and PS: Well done Dementieva!

No, but Im sure it would make a fantastic read, Monica although very popular reveals very little about her life, so I might read it.

Venus Envy is quite entertaining. It's very revealing and I had fun reading about the tour and the tourneys and the players, etc. Wertheim is not a bad writer either. I recommend it! :D

I've read both books, and they both are very good reads!!!

It's cool to get personal insight of what really happens on tour. Oh and monica's book made me cry a couple times...she is soo amazing :sad:

He is also very patronsing toward Monica.

Eh? :confused: :confused: :confused:

Wertheim devotes about 15-20 pages to Monica, and although he doesn't look at her through rose-colored glasses, it's the most beautiful tribute to her I've ever read. I've always thought that his passages about Monica would be the perfect introduction to another fan who didn't know much about her.

I, too, really liked Venus Envy. Very fluid and very informative, especially regarding management agencies and what goes on behind the scenes.
