Facing Serena Williams/Facing Steffi Graf Book

Finally I finished this project, which is a double book, a flip book, with two front covers, the back half (Steffi) is upside down. It’s 188 pages with tons of insights about what it’s like to play Serena and Steffi

Here’s a quick excerpt…

Serena’s Big Return Still An Uncertainty

Serena[1]Serena Williams recently married and gave birth to her first baby, but her tennis career is still on the backburner behind family priorities. The 2017 Australian Open champion has not decided if she will attempt her much-anticipated comeback in Melbourne in January, to defend her title.

Serena’s longtime coach Patrick Mouratoglou told CNN this week that he is scheduled to join the 36 year old, 23-time Grand Slam champion for training in Florida where it will be decided if she is sufficiently prepared to play the Australian Open, which is set for January 15-28th.
