Serena Williams Memoir in Works After Tennis Icon Secures Two-Book Deal


October 20, 2023

Serena Williams is taking on an exciting new project — her memoir.

The AP reports that Williams has secured a two-book deal with the Random House Publishing Group.

Her first release from the deal will be an “intimate” memoir that will cover topics like her epic tennis career and her journey from childhood to her spot as a sports legend. 

“For so long, all I was focused on was winning, and I never sat down to look back and reflect on my life and career,” Williams said in a statement. “Over the last year I’ve really enjoyed taking the time with my growing family to celebrate my accomplishments and explore my other passions. I couldn’t be at a more perfect place to be able to take-on such a personal intimate project, and there’s no one I would rather do it with than the team at Random House.”

The book is still untitled and does not yet have a release date. 


According to Random House, her second book will be an inspirational project.

“Williams will offer rules for living that draw on her experiences as a philanthropist and advocate, her career as an investment unicorn with Serena Ventures, and someone who has long sought to lift a diverse and emergent generation of young women whose aspirations are not confined to the court,” a statement from the publisher detailed.

Williams retried from tennis back in 2022 after earning a game-changing 23 Grand Slam titles in singles and 14 Grand Slam titles in doubles with her sister Venus Williams.


She also welcomed her second child in August — her daughter Adira.
