I remember in particular an article by an italian reporter who described very well why he couldn't stand her at all, it was around the year 2000 something. After that, don't know why, it seemed to me that it was a must not to talk badly about Seles. That same reporter wrote a couple of other articles about her, he wasn't so warm with her, but no more harsh critics.
C'mon now, Seles was stabbed and her legacy robbed, how can you be harsh or criticize her
When you have 'mouthy friends', IMG backing, billionaire boy friends, 'available' to the media and take liberties at changing your narrative (for whatever reason), it is easy to manipulate anything, even history.....
