Monica is officially in the HOF! [Pics inside]

With Monica Seles' HOF induction ceremony this weekend, I was wondering why she never got that proper farewell tribute from the WTA that all the great champions receive? Can we expect one following her HOF induction or has that ship sailed?

Thoughts?

FUCK YOU, SEWTA.

Monica I look forward to seeing the pics and hearing her speech. Goes without saying she fully deserves her place in there.


What WTA send-off tribute do you mean? They made her a tribute video when she announced her retirement if that's the sort of thing you mean.

Well, she kept on saying for around 5 years that she wasn't retired and that she was going to try to come back. It's hard to have a big send off ceremony 5 years after the fact. She'll probably get some ceremony at the HOF induction.

Another billionaire! I just trust The Hof realises she’s no more than a lesbian gold-digger.

I meant that Steffi and Martina both got proper farewells at MSG as tributes when they retired. Monica got the tribute video...and yeah. Could I get a link to that video, please? I'd really like to watch it.

She's on the cover of Tennis magazine? Cool. I'll check it out.

I supposed the lengthy layoff before the retirement did take the zing out of that, although Sampras did get a big send off at the US Open after taking a year to decide. But 5 > 1, and he was defending champion, so I suppose that's moot. I can't wait to watch the HOF induction. Hopefully, someone manages to upload it.

FUCK YOU, SEWTA.

Hopefully she'll get a good send off. She's a very popular champion.

I agree about the 5 year gap issue. If she'd retired in 2004 she'd have had a huge send off.

I wonder who will speak for Monica at her induction. A former player or someone else?
