Seles : a genuine spiritual experience ? (sorry to atheists)
With her book that just came out, with her new body -slim and fit, I sometimes think, what a waste it has all been tenniswise, why has she been tested so much ? I believe in God and I believe in the saying "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger", that we will survive and become stronger if we endure, and that certainly apply to Monica who seems to be happy. I've seen her lately with that dance show, how assertive and happy she sounds in her interviews. I guess that is what her soul has been searching all through those years and at last seems to have found.
But this is a tennis forum. She had won 8 GS titles at 19 (that is just within 3 1/2 years). Then she got stabbed, then she got fat, and remained so until she retired. Isn't it ironic that as soon as she retired she started being all fit again, some 15 years later after the stabbing ? What is the point of that ? She probably would have won 30 GS titles in her career, being the GOAT.
But she's probably bigger than tennis, and she must be a very old soul. God wanted to reach her potential through other means. At least that's my interpretaion her her chaotic journey.
