Sharapova’s book is really good. I should do Serena justice by reading her real autobiography.
“Anyone can be composed and cool while winning, when everything is going according to plan. But how do you deal with a losing streak? That’s the big question, that’s what separates the professionals from the cautionary tales. There really is so much more to learn from losing than winning, about the game and about yourself. Do you get up when you’ve been knocked down? Do you have it in you to press ahead when your work seems pointless… Do you get up one more time than you’ve been knocked down, or do you quit? “–Maria Sharapova
