Serena Williams' 'Inspiring' Memoir Set for Fall 2009 Release


Serena Williams


The memoir, which is not titled yet, will chronicle Serena's journey to her tennis glory and is set for fall 2009 release.

Dubbed as the world's top female tennis player, Serena Williams is penning a memoir with the intention it could help inspiring others. An editor for Grand Central Publishing announced Tuesday, September 16 that they will, in fall 2009, publish Serena's memoir of her rise to tennis glory.

Karen Kosztolnyik, a senior editor who acquired the book for Grand Central Publishing after a bidding battle, said "Serena Williams is one of the world's most remarkable athletes. We've watched her rise to No. 1 despite physical and emotional setbacks, and her hard work and determination have inspired legions of fans young and old." Karen added, "Serena will give her memoir a strong motivational slant."

Financial terms were not disclosed for the deal that was negotiated with literary agent Suzanne Gluck from the William Morris Agency. Serena herself has yet commented on her memoir, which is not yet titled.

Serena kicked off her professional tennis career in 2005 and has already had nine Grand Slam tennis titles under her belt now that she's merely 26 years old. After taking break from the field for various injuries, she has regained the No. 1 ranking for the first time in five years after winning the U.S. Open recently.
