Steffi: Public Power, Private Pain

Steffi: Public Power, Private Pain

by SueHeady (Author)


This is a biography of Steffi Graf. Her talent and determination have taken Graf from child prodigy to a Grand Slam and the number one position in women's tennis. Despite the focus of international media, she has remained an enigmatic figure. This book looks at both her private and public persona. Graf has seen her trust in her father, one of the principal figures in her life, tested by accusations of infidelity. She has had her romantic liaisons splashed across front pages of around the world, and suffered career-threatening injuries. But on the court, she remains at the top. Graf is a private person who is famous and a German sporting star who chooses to live in New York. She is perhaps, also, in the not too distant future, coming to terms with a life without tennis.
