The BBC could have treated her better although I was not a fan of question of sport, they could have handled it better and now look at it!

If you are a tennis fan, and a Sue Barker fan, the lady herself reading her autobiography is an enjoyable listen. I have always been a huge fan of A Question of Sport, and I was devastated when Sue was forced to leave. This is a remarkable life story of a tennis champion, an award-winning broadcaster, and I enjoyed every minute listening to her incredible life story. I found her life story very interesting, I had never considered how different the WTA tour would be in the 70s but it was very interesting.She played well through each match, swinging her hugely admired dangerous weapon, her famous forehand and it is there she won the ladies final Championship with a score sheet of 62-06-62. I coached many teenager and adults for over twenty years, and played for many years for the island of Jersey, which I am proud to have done. But I was intrigued to read about her being drawn into sports commentary and anchoring at great sporting events beyond tennis. I’d imagine she would be fun in the bar with her stories and she definitely would have an opinion on most players and their game. I found the journey to becoming a tennis star really interesting and it is forgotten with her broadcast career what an amazing player she was.

I am not a big tennis fan and haven’t watched “Question of Sport” for decades but I really enjoyed Sue Barker’s biography. As a broadcaster, in 2001 she became the first woman to win the Royal Television Society's best sports presenter award. Plus as a older teenager I played and coached at The Imperial Hotel in Torquay, and I did play at The Palace Hotel in Paignton. She reveals the battles she fought for hard-won success in two careers and gives us a ringside seat on the nation's biggest sporting dramas, and a fascinating insider's understanding of competitors under pressure. I have enjoyed watching Sue Barker present the Wimbledon fortnight and initially on Question of Sport.How you see Sue on the television is the real Sue, and admire so much when she says "You see enough of me on television, you won't see me showing my house off in the Hello Magazine.
