QUEEN OF THE COURT The Many Lives of Tennis Legend Alice Marble

by | Read by Moniqua Plante

Biography & Memoir • 15.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Narrator Moniqua Plante's clear voice and steady cadence enhance this fascinating examination of tennis legend Alice Marble. Between 1936 and 1940, Marble won 18 Grand Slam championships--even though she'd gained notoriety as a baseball player as a child. Encouraged to play a "lady's game," Marble became known for her pioneering style in power tennis and later coached Billie Jean King. She was also a fashion designer, a singer/performer, an author, and a Civil Rights activist. While Plante misses the opportunity to create a more engaging listening experience by adding vocal variety during emotional turns in the story, her thoughtful pauses provide emphasis and even levity at times.
