"The story of Evonne Goolagong is a modern fairy tale, a romance-magazine cartoon come true. It is a story of how the third daughter of a poor Aborigine sheep-shearer became a world champion at the age of nineteen and a millionairess.
Evonne describes how a series of strokes of luck led to her being 'discovered'; how one of Australia's top tennis coaches took her under his wing; how she 'served her time', practising from dawn till dusk, playing on pot-holed courts at countless local tournaments; and how finally she soared to international stardom."
