Q. Who are your heroes in the game?
SERENA WILLIAMS: When I was younger, I always admired Monica Seles actually, Martina Navratilova.

Q. Can you say why?
SERENA WILLIAMS: Monica, she always seemed to have this sort of determination about her. She was young and feisty. I was young. I think I just liked her for that.
I don't know why I liked Martina Navratilova. I mean, I don't play anything like her. I don't know why I liked her so much. She was always my favorite.

:worship: :worship: :worship:

Nice to hear Serena say that Monica was the one she called her hero (the one she watched when she was younger).
Hingis also has said this as well. And Anna as well.
Ok - alot of the tennis players now a days watched Monica, when she was taking over the tennis world back in the early 90's.
Serena is making history herself now - congrats to her!!!!http://www.click-smilie.de/sammlung/party/party-smiley-043.gif

I think this title of the thread should read:

EVERYONE = "admire monica"

Monica is the best! If you look at what other players have said...they all admire her. Venus modelled her grunt after Monica's grunt!

I think we should all collectively give Monica a bow! :worship:
