I read one about Monica called "The Return of a Champion"... it was pretty good. I haven't read any others though, probably because I've never seen them!! I'm sure there are many other good ones out there though.

I love Monica but her autobiography is not a well written one. Not entirely her fault though.
Pam Shriver's Passing Shots which is more of a tale of a season on the tour for her is very good. I'm trying to get hold of Billie Jean, Martina N and Zina Garrison's books though.

Billie Jean, and Martina N biographies are excellent books. But I liked Hana's book the best of all.:)

I've only read the Chris Evert book. Plus the book "Lloyd on Lloyd" she did with her (then husband) John.

I find it impossible to find any of the others anywhere. Online booksites are usually situated in the US. I did find "Passing Shots" on a UK site but it was a signed hardback copy and cost £120 !!!! I won't be paying that in my lifetime.

I could probably find them in second hand bookshops, but that takes a lot of time that I don't have.

VBN, to your question. The Evert books are great if you're a fan. I have been told by neutral fans that the books are average. ( disagree, but then I'm not neutral:) )

out of the shadows from the daughter of a serial killer! it`s hardly to believe that`s it`s a real happened story

sorry, I never read a tennisbiography(I mean written by the player him or herself)
Steffi should write one, I would travel the world to get it if she did(I doubt she will though)

Not a tennis biog, but Personal Best by Denise Lewis is an interesting read if you like athletics.

I agree with irma- a Steffi autobiog would be great!

I agree. "From Fear to Victory" is a superb book. Indeed I think it is more well written than "Venus Envy". You're right. tennis books are often hard to find. I buy all mine from a specialist tennis book shop called the Tennis Gallery, next to Wimbledon Park tube station, in London.
I even managed to get the Australian Open 2002 programme from them today!
