About this product
- DescriptionIn 2008, 14-year-old Laura Robson shocked the world by giving Britain its first Wimbledon winner in 14 years. From seemingly out of where, the previously unkwn teen stormed through the famous tournament to win the girls' singles title, instantly making her the talk of the tennis cogscenti. With her powerful serve and winning smile she quickly captured the nation's hearts, giving the country a much-needed heroine in a year that had thus far been filled with sporting disappointments. 'We love you, Laura!' read the national newspaper headlines, beginning a fascination with the shy teenager that continues to this day. But with Laura's newfound fame came the weight of responsibility - could she continue her winning streak and place Britain firmly back on top of the game we love so much? For the first time, author Tina Campanella gives you the full story behind Britain's best-loved tennis starlet: her ups and downs, trials and tribulations, and the gritty determination that has seen her become one of the top female tennis players in the world.
