Why start this thread? I'm sick of hearing about "Seles fans" being singled out.

She looks bothered by some injury in the photo. The photo would exist wether she won or lost, it's irrelevant. Bite me.

I guess we're just concerned whether Monica's alright. A loss is a loss and Monica graciously accepted the defeat and gave due credit to Raymond. We Seles' fans do likewise...

You are and will always be the greatest ever!! We miss you Monica!
Ferrero get back to the top soon where you belong!!!

I look at people like Andre Agassi and Monica Seles, and of course what they did. I was always amazed at how Monica came back after so long and did so well. I try to keep that as an inspiration. He who doubts loses. (Serena Williams)

Boo hoo, get over it!! The Williams fans go through "so much", don't they? I guess you should make everyone else go through it and get them even more mad at you!!!!

Visit MONICA!

And we were just SPECULATING whether Monica was injured because her results have been dropping off. By no means were we discrediting the players she's lost to!

I'm not looking for any excuses, she just lost to someone who was playing better. I hate when any fans start with the excuses when their players lose and that includes Monica fans.

Williams fans, we are not like you. We give credit to the opponents who beat Monica no matter what Monica's condition is. However to this day, a lot of Venus fans still do not give full credit to Monica's win over Venus in Australia, so please look at yourselves

She can't be always the winner. She lost, and now? That's Tennis.

first of all, i was trying to be nice because if monica isnt playing against venus or serena then i would root for her, i even want her to be number 3...first of all if you dont want to be generalized dont generalize us as all being the way you make seem, of course there are gonna be williams fans who wont give credit to monica and of course there wont be monica fans who give credit to opponents she loses to...in my opinion monica does deserve credit...you act like all seles fans are fair and just, which isnt true because there was even a thread that was about how you guys (not all seles fans) have been acting lately, so before you tell us to look at ourselves, look at yourselves first...

The thread you are talking about was concerning Monica's fitness topics which is irrelevant to giving credit or not. You people like to change the subject
