And that’s not a story unique to women’s football; from motorsport to gymnastics via tennis and more, there are women who have faced societal prejudices and personal and professional challenges to become the best at what they do. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Going all in for her once-only autobiography, Sue takes us inside the showbizzy world of 70s and early 80s tennis, dating the stars, hitting the headlines. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. Actually I have to get that comment right, Sue's two careers, a tennis career, and a television career.

From footballers to athletes and tennis players we've brought you the best stories and advice from on and off the pitch. Plus as a older teenager I played and coached at The Imperial Hotel in Torquay, and I did play at The Palace Hotel in Paignton.Currently underway, the FIFA Women’s World Cup not only showcases some of the best footballing talent in the world, but also some of the best stories about overcoming hurdles and hardship to succeed. And now, after four decades on camera encouraging other legends to share their stories, she is telling her own. She reveals the battles she fought for hard-won success in two careers, gives us a ringside seat on the nation's biggest sporting dramas, and a fascinating insider's understanding of competitors under pressure. She played well through each match, swinging her hugely admired dangerous weapon, her famous forehand and it is there she won the ladies final Championship with a score sheet of 62-06-62. I loved the honesty, the humour and the insight into the tennis life, the presenter life and the private life.

I loved the stories of her time on the circuit which seems magical now and made me nostalgic for those heady days when you knew all the players especially in the women’s game!

I admired Sue before listening to this book and even more so now for her no nonsense attitude and the utmost professionalism she brought to her work.

But I was intrigued to read about her being drawn into sports commentary and anchoring at great sporting events beyond tennis.A quite, honest, sincere women, great career, but also a larger and fuller television career, and one thing is for sure. Sue Barker’s autobiography is a real revelation to me, full of tennis facts and information about her tennis peers. I’m sorry this comes over as a negative review, because on the whole it’s interesting to read of her gumption and professionalism in her sporting and television careers.
