Tennis phenom Serena Williams definitely has a story to tell.


She’s only 26 and already has nine Grand Slam tennis titles under her belt, as well as a gold medal in the women’s doubles at the Beijing Olympics, so it’s no wonder publishers have been fighting for the rights to release her memoir.


An editor for Grand Central Publishing announced today that in 2009 they will publish Serena’s story of her rise to tennis glory.


”Serena Williams is one of the world’s most remarkable athletes,” said editor Karen Kosztolnyik in a statement. ”We’ve watched her rise to No. 1 despite physical and emotional setbacks, and her hard work and determination have inspired legions of fans young and old. Serena will give her memoir a strong motivational slant.”


We can’t wait to see how Serena serves it up!
