Sisters and Champions An inspirational biography of the now world famous Williams sisters which celebrates their extraordinary success without shying away from discussion of the hurdles they faced. Bryant tells that they came from Compton, a tough, poor neighbourhood where children did not play tennis and where expectation were low, and that racism was prevalent in the world of sport which they were entering. Despite these odds and with the help of their father, they persevered and practised while still keeping up with school. Floyd Cooper's illustrations using oil wash on board bring the story of the sisters and their parents to life.
