A Serena Williams Memoir is in the works, with the tennis star releasing the book in Fall 2009. See more photos and video of Serena Williams below.
The 26-year-old has nine Grand Slam titles under belt and most recently won the U.S. Open to once again get the No. 1 ranking that has been out of her grasp the last five years.
Grand Central Publishing won the bidding war for the Serena Williams memoir, and Karen Kosztolnyik, senior editor for the publishing firm, said in a statement:
“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. Serena will give her memoir a strong motivational slant.”
Financial details of the deal were not disclosed, but according to news reports, Grand Central Publishing plunked down a cool $1.3 million for the rights. The Serena Williams Memoir is currently untitled.
What do you think would be an appropriate title for her memoir? Leave me comments…
