Enjoyed every minute of this book. It kept me up past bedtime. Even had me reaching for my phone, when my hands should have been on the steering wheel. And I wish she’d write some more. If you enjoyed Ronda Rousey’s book you’ll probably enjoy this too.
Some of my favourite parts:
“No one can be great everyday. Can you get it done on the ugly days when you feel like garbage and the tank is empty? i’ve been close to flawless on a few lucky afternoons, I can count them on one hand. But it’s usually a question of figuring out how to win with what ever I’ve got. There’s so many matches I have won just by figuring out how to sneak by.”
“If you want to survive you have to have a short memory. It’s important to remember but it’s more important to forget. Learn what you can and remember what you’ve learned. It’s best just to forget.”
I found it a great story I enjoyed every chapter when I began listening I just couldn't stop even though I have now heard it I will still buy the book to keep.
I wish Maria Sharapova everything good in the future and look forward to watching her play again and again.

Fascinating to hear her childhood experience and her fathers obsessive desire to be number one!
Great story from an amazing athlete. Maria reading it made it very special and emotional.
This was an awesome book as good if not better than Agassi’s OPEN. What an amazing champion on and of the court she is. A true measure of character is when you have been kicked when you are down and to rise full of fight and fire. She’s is a true Phoenix. I can’t wait to watch her win her next French and then beat Serena at Wimbledon.
