Actually I have to get that comment right, Sue's two careers, a tennis career, and a television career.

Going all in for her once-only autobiography, Sue takes us inside the showbizzy world of 70s and early 80s tennis. I’d imagine she would be fun in the bar with her stories and she definitely would have an opinion on most players and their game.Sue Barker never managed to get to the dizzy heights of the before mentioned superstars but she was very competitive, won a grand slam and then went on to have a career in the media. Sue Barker was also from that era where the circuit was littered with superstars with Billie Jean King, Chris Evett and Martina Navratilova. I have enjoyed watching Sue Barker present the Wimbledon fortnight and initially on Question of Sport.

I found the journey to becoming a tennis star really interesting and it is forgotten with her broadcast career what an amazing player she was. She played well through each match, swinging her hugely admired dangerous weapon, her famous forehand and it is there she won the ladies final Championship with a score sheet of 62-06-62.

Now on the WAT tour (Women's Tennis Association) and with some great wins behind her, Sue is back in France playing at Roland Garros, one of the four Grand Slam tournaments most revered in the world. And now, after four decades on camera encouraging other legends to share their stories, she is telling her own.Overall a good read about a sporting journey and what happens next in terms of career after that finishes. If you are a tennis fan, and a Sue Barker fan, the lady herself reading her autobiography is an enjoyable listen.
