do you think that one day there will be a movie made about the life of monica seles? i mean there's so many things that have happened that seem "movie quality" and the she's only 30...

im pretty sure that there will one day be a williams sisters movie, it's even been talked about, but i was just wondering how this would sound if i pitched it to ya.

How about a combined movie of all three stories? Sort of just like the Hours. Hopefully, it won't be as boring.

As much as I *LOVE* to see one - I doubt it. She's way too private to have an authorized biopic.

i agree... u can look at her and never really tell her age. untimately, she couldn't do the whole thing... but i hate it when they switch ppl more than once throughout a movie.

Why does everyone hate Pam Shriver so much. She was the one commentator who could actually shut up Arthur Ashe's droning, complaining, whining style of tennis commentary!

Unless Monica actually helped to make the movie and told all her secrets it would be quite boring. Like most cheesy TV movies are. I'm not saying she has had a boring life cause obviously she hasn't but... These kinds of movies are usually crap.

:haha:

Too funny. Although I personally loved the Hours.

I can already imagine...

The movie begins with Monica's stabbing.. and then it goes to Jennifer's shop lifting.. and then it cuts to the young Williams sisters practising tennis in L.A. whilst people are trying to sell drugs and amongst gun shots. And then it goes back to Monica when she was trying to recover physically.... and so on. :)

I could see a Martina Nav or Steffi Graf movie happening before Monica's.

(In any movie, Cate Blanchett could play Steffi so well it's frightening.)

Personally, one project I'd like to see is a book about Karolj Seles, Monica's father. That, I think, would be truly interesting.

I imagine any support for Monica right now would be essential.

And I would definately buy tickets and - when it comes out - a dvd copy if the 'movie' proposal gets through.

Maybe Matthew Perry could play jennifer. That would be a laugh. Id pay my $8 for that.

Most actresses are to diminutive for Serena. Denzel kinda has the physique, although he'll need to hit the gym and get some silicone........... Would that ever be an oscar..........hehehe

:haha: that movie sure would suck! although there would definitely be a good amount of material... all those damned slams, monica's taking over then getting stabbed, the stuff she had to go through with her father and that stuff, and then marrying andre agassi...

Actually they should have a tv series based on the lives of the wta stars through the years..however..this being fiction... it should all take place at ONE time..like if martina, steffi, the williams, evert,Henin, Hingis, austin, seles etc played at the same time..at there peaks D R A M A on showtime ?? Instead of the L word it would be the T word ;)

The world of figure skating is trying to launch "The Ice Channel." One of their proposed programs (http://www.theicechannel.com/sub.asp?pg=Programming):

“Ice Storm” (Live by tape delay, Mon-Fri, 2:30-3:30 p.m.) (Entertainment)

Soap opera melodrama taped in studio and on location with five episodes/week (repeated in marathon format on weekends from 12:00-5:00 p.m. as counter-programming); actors and skater guests in scripted drama that focuses on continuing romances, scandals, sex lives, politics, rivalries and changing relationships of skaters, coaches, agents, producers, parents, fans, federation officials and judges within the tumultuous skating world; written as fiction, often based on true storylines. #1 Daytime Show.


You can't make this stuff up! :D The Tennis Channel seriously needs to consider this...
