seles congratulates new #1
Interview With Kim Clijsters:
Q. Can you say a word or two about Monica Seles? She's going through a tough time with injuries.
KIM CLIJSTERS: I mean, she's been incredible. I think she's -- as soon as I got to No. 1, she wrote me a fax, she called me in Toronto and everything. That shows what a champion she is, if you can do those things. She's been, you know, growing up definitely a player I admired, especially after she had her stabbing. That's something that -- you know, she's such a strong fighter, with a nice and even strong personality. I think that's definitely, you know, sad not to see her here. I know how much she loves playing tennis and how much she enjoys coming. I think she's going to come here, too, just to have a look and to say hi to everyone. I think also if you see at all the tournaments she goes, she's always a favorite. A lot of people, everyone likes her. I think that's great to see.
Q. What did she write you in the fax?
KIM CLIJSTERS: To congratulate me, saying how proud and happy she is for me, yeah.
Class act, go MOnica, get well soon!!
