The story of five-time Grand Slam winner Maria Sharapova. An autobiography that captivates her extraordinary journey to the epitome of tennis stardom.
In the middle of the night, a father and his daughter step off a Greyhound bus in Florida with only seven-hundred dollars and a strong conviction that the little girl of seven will rule the tennis world. They head straight to the Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy. Guess what the dad and daughter proved their conviction to be right.
Young Maria Sharapova went on to win Wimbledon at just seventeen years old against reigning champion Serena Williams. The same match kicked off their legendary rivalry and placed Sharapova on the international stage.
At the age of eighteen, she became the number-one WTA rank holder for the first time, and has held that ranking many times since.
In this gripping autobiography, the champion recounts the story of her phenomenal rise to success, narrated with the same no-holds-barred, fiercely provocative attitude that characterizes her tennis game.
‘Unstoppable’ is an inspiring story of persistence, pulsing with fearlessness and candor.
