I recently had the pleasure of reading the memoir of world-class tennis player, Li Na. Li is a colorful character, having made quite an impression on the Chinese public, and the world outside China’s borders as well.
The memoir centers around the title Li won at the 2011 French Open. It was an emotional, exhilarating time for her, and reading about her journey up to that point in her life is fun. The memoir is lively and funny, and also easy to read. It is not yet out in an English edition, but I have hopes that it might be one day.
For those who read Chinese, the book (titled 《独自上场》) is written in simple language and style, and can be taken in at one sitting.
