FIFTEEN -- THIRTY

Not very colorful, but a sincere story of her own life. The surprising thing is the amount she has accomplished in her thirty years. In addition to international fame as a tennis player, she has written articles, done newspaper feature work, exhibited and sold her own sketches and etchings, posed for the mural in the San Francisco Stock Exchange, sat for her portrait to Leopold Seyffert, climbed the Jungfrau, spent two years of semi-invalidism, and married Freddie Moody. There are fine bits of description. Her games seem to happen before the reader's eyes. She gives them in sufficient detail for the fan -- but not too much for the average reader. On the whole, a good job. Appeal wider than simply the tennis fans.
