Monica is definitely a tennis legend always and probably the most liked female tennis player ever. She is just such a likeable person.She's a fighter all of the turmoil she has faced and with such dignity she's a great rolemodel. In 1992 she was robbed of the Wimbldon title for complaints about her grunts. Do your research she was winning evrything around that time since 1990-91,92 and beginning of 93 b4 the stabbing. That's the only grandslam she didnt win! I will be getting her book to learn some things that may have not been mentioned yet! I love Seles!!! :)

Brian, I can't believe you called Monica, "the former tennis great"! Ms. Seles will always be a tennis great!

The staccato monotone is maddening! Please it stop!

I totally agree about the grunt. That she was robbed of the grand slam by the complaints at Wimbledon is one of the tragedies of sports - along with her stabbing. She's wonderful.

Do a large percentage of international women pro tennis players that train in the U.S. (Florida, California, etc.) become naturalized American citizens?
