內容簡介

  一位決意在37歲回歸網壇的傳奇女球星
  一段感動眾人,父親與女兒關係之間深刻的描寫
 
  Carrie Soto好勝心非常強,她總是盡一切所能奪得勝利。因此在她宣告退休前,早已成為世界知名的球后,橫掃所有記錄,並奪得多達20次的大滿貫,可謂是無人能及。這樣的好成績不得不歸功於她的父親Javier,前任世界球王,在她2歲時便開始訓練她。而她也總是不負期待,竭盡全力。
 
  然而在Carrie退休6年後,球壇出現了一位明星新秀Nicki Chan,以驚人且具爆發性的姿態即將打破她引以為傲的世界紀錄。此時的Carrie已37歲,但她做出了一項非常大膽且冒險的決定—重新接受父親的訓練指導,再一次挑戰大滿貫。即便所有體壇媒體都不斷嘲諷,聲稱體育界從來就不喜歡這位兇猛的「女戰士」;即便她的體力和耐力,都早已不如年輕時敏捷;即便這意味著她必須低下頭,重新攜手和那位男人—Bowe Huntley共同訓練。無論如何Carrie都將重回球壇,再次揮拍,完成充滿淚水與汗水,且經典的最後一次球季。

  “An epic adventure about a female athlete perhaps past her prime, brought back to the tennis court for one last grand slam” (Elle), from the New York Times bestselling author of Malibu Rising, Daisy Jones & The Six, and The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

  “Gorgeous. The kind of sharp, smart, potent book you have to set aside every few pages just to catch your breath. I’ll take a piece of Carrie Soto forward with me in life and be a little better for it.”—Emily Henry, author of Book Lovers and Beach Read

  Carrie Soto is fierce, and her determination to win at any cost has not made her popular. But by the time she retires from tennis, she is the best player the world has ever seen. She has shattered every record and claimed twenty Grand Slam titles. And if you ask Carrie, she is entitled to every one. She sacrificed nearly everything to become the best, with her father, Javier, as her coach. A former champion himself, Javier has trained her since the age of two.
 
  But six years after her retirement, Carrie finds herself sitting in the stands of the 1994 US Open, watching her record be taken from her by a brutal, stunning player named Nicki Chan.
 
  At thirty-seven years old, Carrie makes the monumental decision to come out of retirement and be coached by her father for one last year in an attempt to reclaim her record. Even if the sports media says that they never liked “the Battle-Axe” anyway. Even if her body doesn’t move as fast as it did. And even if it means swallowing her pride to train with a man she once almost opened her heart to: Bowe Huntley. Like her, he has something to prove before he gives up the game forever.
 
  In spite of it all, Carrie Soto is back, for one epic final season. In this riveting and unforgettable novel, Taylor Jenkins Reid tells her most vulnerable, emotional story yet.
