Anyone else see it? She talks about her stabbing as we near the 10th 'anniversary' (if that's an appropriate word). She also goes into great depth about the loss of her father and why she had a hard time trying to decide if she wanted a coach or not.

The article is mostly, however, on how tennis remains the love of her life. And that is still playing because she loves the game so geniunely and honestly.

I will scan and post some of the pictures. There's a new one (well, I've never seen it) of little Monica, maybe 6-8 years old.

On a side note: to all those who keep beating your drum about saying she should quit, she's washed up, etc... before you ever say that again, at least read this interview. Maybe then you'll see why we have no right to tell her what to do with her tennis life and perhaps you can gain an appreciation of why she still plays even though she's not the ever-dominant presence she once was. (Plus it would only be fair... you've had your say and we (had to) listen to it.... no she has hear say and to be fair, you should (have to) read it.

Yes she's so cute...and still has that determination now when she's hitting the ball. Cute to see that face back then.

The special section is now available on http://www.seles.co.uk With more to come soon....this is just a rough idea of what the article is about.

It's available in any bookstore in the USA or by subscription. Visit their site @ http://www.tennis.com

Enjoy!!

This was the best article/interview I have read in Tennis Magazine. I had actually thought about cancelling my subscription but now I will give it another chance.

Yes, it's a great article! Renewed my faith in them, that's for sure. After months of what seemed like nothing but ads for spas and socks, we finally have substance!!
