    Unless there is more than one, it was horrible and utterly self absorbed. The only thing of value is a complete listing of all professional matches through the first part of her career and about a year of her first comeback. Terrible writing to boot. I hope there is a better one in her future, because she needs to scratch that effort.

    Are you talking about "Monica" from the 90s? She released "Getting A Grip" a couple of years ago, which covered the same territory as her first book (growing up, match recounting, etc.), plus more of her later career and struggles with overeating.

    I found it to be a compelling read, but I like Monica. Written a lot more warmly and diplomatically than Agassi's "Open", but I get the feeling she isn't quite as cerebral and angsty as Andre. All in all, I would say it is worth your time.

    Great book. Monica was one of the greatest champions in WTA history.

    Monica also had a book released in 1996 named "From Fear to Victory". This book is more concentrated in the dominant period of Monica's career and the whole stabbing, struggling to come to terms with it and eventually returning and doing well, in the initial period of her return. "Getting a Grip" has a more overall view, because her post-stabbing tennis career didn't really go to plan as she would have liked.

    That's the one I read with such disdain.
