Talking I'm so happy that at last Monica Seles is enjoying her life!

I've always been worried about when Monica Seles would come back to the Tour, but now that I'm sure that she won't, I'm thrilled to see her so happy, relaxed and human! For those who can't think of life outside the Tour, Monica is a great example of class and humility.

Have a great life, Monica. I hope you the best things in life.

See you as a Hall of Famer soon!

I whole-heartedly agree!!

I think Monica's days playing on the WTA Tour are over. She looks very happy and relaxed just "being."

Has Monica announced her official retirement?? Will she retire at the USO or the YEC (like Martina Nav was supposed to do last year )?? She will be miss by all (including Grafanctics).

As the game has moved on and many bars raised in the last 2.5 years Monica would be thrashed on a regular basis even by non-top-10 players.

And then people would start to ask why the hell did the great Steffi have so much trouble with her (Steffi lost 33 % of her matches against Monica!!!).

Hey, Calimero, did you read my post over on the Blast From the Past forum (Steffi Graf Admiration thread)?

It is my latest take on the Graf/Seles controversy. I even find something to say about the grunting. Take a look.

Steffi Graf was part of a youth tennis group that was studied from age 12 and then followed, and the scientists called her "the perfect talent" even then. In addition to her many tennis-specific skills, her aerobic capacity was on par with the best distance runners in Europe. --- David Epstein, The Sports Gene
