Abstract:

Shares the story of the sisters and tennis stars, including their special relationship as sisters and best friends, their constant training as children, and their incredible success in professional tennis.

Two peas in a pod. Best friends. Above all: sisters. Venus and Serena Williams are two of the greatest tennis players of all time. Some say they are two of the greatest athletes of all time. Before they were world famous, they were little girls with big dreams. Six days a week they awoke before the sun came up to practice their serves and returns, to learn to run faster and hit harder. They were unstoppable. At age fourteen, Venus played her first professional match. Three years later, it was Serena's turn. It wasn't easy. Some tennis fans cheered for these two fresh faces, while those who were unhappy to see two black girls competing in a nearly all-white sport booed and taunted them. But they didn't let it stop them. This is the inspiring stoy of two athletes who were competitors on the court, but sisters above all. -- From dust jacket.
