Did anyone read that great Seles article in the USTA magazine?

All Seles fans should read this article, I found it very uplifting,and I especially liked the part about her feelings about her father.

Here is an excerpt: "whenever Monica talks about her father, I listen intently, trying to absorb what she means," Sell says. "For one thing, I think it comforts her. Also by incorporating some of his drills he used in her practics, it's like a part of her father is there." It also talks about how Seles insist that nobody knows her game like her father. But now she is more willing to communicate with other coaches, and learn to be more open.

One more Exceprt: Here's a thought, straight out of Armchair Psychology 101: Winning a grandslam tournament under the wing of any coach other than Karolj Seles probably would represent some sort of closure for Monica. But perhaps, until now, she has not been quite ready to accept closure-not unless it could be achieved with some lingering sense of Karolj's presence, his indispensability. Perhaps Sell's skillful incorporation of Karolj's methodology will prove to be the final, missing piece of the puzzle for Monica. Perhaps she is truley ready to move on-and up again.

I really like the article, sorry I can't find it to Copy and paste.

GO MONICA!

Thank You, so much! You certainly don't need to be a Seles Fan, to truly wish the girl gets some closure!

It is unfortuneate about Paul Pierce, but does that have anything whatsoever to do with Monica incident. I am not going ot repeat again what the whole story is and the whole judical system bla bla bla but then you have to live with the fact that if Monica want closure, she meant it

Noaces you missed the point entirely, this is not about the stabbing at all. Sheesh enough about that.. lol This is about Monica the women. A sensitive and passionate women who loves her father and tennis dearly.

The article also has some Billie Jean quotes, all positive about Monica. I think these two are really close. I wish someone could copy and paste or find this on the website and post it here, as I don't think everyone gets the USTA magazine.
