Garrison, Zina
At Wimbledon in 1990, Zina Garrison became the first African-American woman to reach a Grand Slam final since Althea Gibson in 1958 Olympic gold medalist and three-time Grand Slam mixed doubles champion, Zina Garrison took the mostly white tennis world by storm, climbing to number four in singles ranking and earning millions in prize money. In this intimate account of her life, she shares the ups and downs of her experiences as a professional athlete, including the glory of Wimbledon, the trials of a rocky marriage, her battle with bulimia, and the difficulty of losing her mother. Throughout her struggles, disappointments, and triumphs, she maintains the determination and inner strength that made her a champion. "It's tough to focus on your forehand when life gives you a backhand slap. . . . There were times when I wanted to escape the pressures of being considered a role model." - from the book
