Publisher's Summary

'It was the day I put the tennis balls into the tumble dryer that I realised I thought about tennis a little bit differently.'

What happens when you find you have exceptional children? Do you panic? Put your head in the sand? Or risk everything and jump in headfirst?

As mother to tennis champions Jamie and Andy Murray, Scottish national coach, coach of the Fed Cup and general all-round can-do woman of wonder, Judy Murray is the ultimate role model for believing in yourself and reaching out to ambition. As a parent, coach and leader, she is an inspiration who has revolutionised British tennis. From the soggy community courts of Dunblane to the white heat of Centre Court at Wimbledon, Judy Murray's extraordinary memoir charts the challenges she has faced, from desperate finances and growing pains to entrenched sexism.

We all need a story of 'yes we can' to make us believe great things are possible. This is that story.

    "So interesting"

    This was the first autobiography that I have read/listened to. I am an Andy Murray fan so I was interested in hearing Judy's story.

    I loved it! I couldn't stop listening to it. She is an amazing women and I had no idea what as a family they gone through and achieved to get there.

    I throughly recommend it.

    Story
    "Great coach, ambassador and mum."

    I read this book as I've always played tennis. I expected to enjoy the insights into pro-tennis, and to hear how 2 brothers managed to get to be top players. I hadn't anticipated that I would enjoy even more than that, the story of a truly inspirational woman who has fought to get her boys to where they are and also given so much back. Well written, well read, an ace.

    "Interesting to get to know Murray more"

    Excellent to discover more about Judy Murray other than her being the mother of the tennis stars.

    Story
    "What an inspirational woman"
    If you could sum up Knowing the Score in three words, what would they be?

    Inspirational, fascinating, heartwarming


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Knowing the Score?

    Reading about how innovative Judy was when starting out coaching with very little money and how on two occasions unexpected windfalls helped Andy progress in his tennis career when the chips were down.


    What about Judy Murray’s performance did you like?

    I loved her voice, accent and tone.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When the comedian humiliated her about her clothing at an awards ceremony. I hope he reads the book and is ashamed of himself.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm an avid tennis player and audible listener so this combination was perfect for me.
