What do we know about Serena Williams upcoming memoir?

Serena Williams, one of the greatest professional tennis players of all time, has closed a two-book deal with the Random House Publishing Group. Starting with an up-close depiction of her life, spanning from her childhood and early training to her legendary career and the obstacles that were placed in her way, her deeply personal memoir is set to be the first book in the deal. It is however, currently still untitled and doesn’t have a release date set just yet.

“For so long, all I was focused on was winning, and I never sat down to look back and reflect on my life and career. Over the last year I’ve really enjoyed taking the time with my growing family to celebrate my accomplishments and explore my other passions. I couldn’t be at a more perfect place to be able to take-on such a personal intimate project, and there’s no one I would rather do it with than the team at Random House.”
