Here she was in Florida and suddenly other girls were walking up to her; other players, girls from The Tour. Helm didn’t want this.
“Yes. What?” she returned in greeting. They were telling her that she was playing Emma Jasohn in the first round tomorrow, at the end of the day. “Why?” Helm knew this already; in fact the question tormented her. She repeated it. “Why?”
Vivvy Helm was such a freak! What did she mean, Why? “Could you beat her in half an hour? You could, couldn’t you?” They watched all the blood leave her face, her lips go white. She terrified them.
“It’s a bet, Vivvy,” they explained. . .
German teen head case and Wimbledon champion Vivienne Helm is having a rotten time in America—but that’s about to change, as the top sports rivalry of 1988 veers sharply towards cross-country romance in Middlemarch.
Part 2 of FAMEPUNK reunites the charismatic international cast of US Open 1987 for an epic adventure on and beyond the show courts of Grand Slam tennis. Tangling with teen movie buffs and home-schooled child prodigies, hostile head waitresses, crazed evangelical preachers, witches, retirees, tax-dodging entrepreneurs, high-stakes gamblers, soft-core pornographers, forces of law and propriety, and poisonous wildlife will prove a test of nerves even for the Brooklyn-born star (almost: Emma Jasohn needs work) who’s determined to defend her title—and to finish reading George Eliot’s masterpiece. . .soon.
It’s very long.
