"For sheer strength of performance and accomplishment there has never been a tennis player to match Margaret Court" International Tennis Hall of Fame
With 64 major grand slam titles to her name, Australian Margaret Court stands alone as the greatest tennis player of all time.
Born in a country town to a hard-living father and a very protective mother, Margaret's first racquet was a timber paling and her first step on a tennis court was via a hole in the fence. Against all odds, she built an indomitable game based on speed, power and a fighting spirit.
After a stellar 17-year career of 24 singles, 19 doubles and 21 mixed doubles titles, three Grand Slams (one in singles, two in mixed doubles) and seven individual years as world No.1, Margaret retired to be with her husband and children.
Following a period of depression and seclusion, in 1991 she became an ordained minister. Today, 'Pastor Marg' preaches to thousands around the world and her charities feed, clothe and house many lost, homeless and hungry souls.
This long-awaited autobiography explains what lit a fire in the poor girl from Albury to make her the most extraordinary champion tennis has ever seen and the proud woman she is today.
