Slated to be released in 2009 by Grand Central Publishing, the book will offer Williams's "physical and emotional setbacks," the publisher said in a statement to the Associated Press.
In 2007, Williams, 26, told PEOPLE of her temporary tennis slump a year earlier, "I went through a lot ... but I am totally on my own now. I'm always going to just be Serena."
