Wertheim's mailbag a couple of weeks ago mentioned anagrams -- words or phrases whose letters can be rearranged to form other words.

He wasn't looking for interesting anagrams of players, specifically, but I got to thinking. So I typed "Monica Seles" into an anagram web site and got some interesting results.
