The Wild Card
By (author) Judy Murray
It’s never too late to follow your dreams…
Twenty years ago, Abigail Patterson put her promising tennis career on hold to have her baby son, Robbie. But after a wild card entry to Wimbledon, she suddenly finds herself swept up in a world she thought she’d left behind – and against all odds, she’s winning!
Yet as those long-buried dreams of lifting the sparkling silver trophy on centre court inch closer, Abi knows that it’s only a matter of time before the press start digging into her past and uncover the secret she’s kept hidden for so long.
The stakes are raised, but this time nothing – and no one – is going to stand in her way. But could the greatest comeback of all time destroy everything she’s sacrificed to protect?
Judy Murray is a former Scottish international tennis player and has 64 national titles to her name. In 1995 she became the Scottish National Coach. Judy is a powerful voice in the battle for equality of opportunity for women in sport and was awarded an OBE for services to tennis, women in sport and charity. Alongside her tennis and coaching achievements, Judy was a contestant on Strictly Come Dancing in 2014, a Costa Book Award judge in 2021 and made her debut at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2022. Her memoir Knowing the Score was a Sunday Times bestseller and nominated for Sports Book of the Year. The Wild Card is her first novel.
