She must be planning to have one more go because otherwise she would surely have retired.

May 21st, 2006, 02:51 PM

May 21st, 2006, 02:52 PM
Tennis' most beloved champion. Come back soon, Monica! :worship:

May 21st, 2006, 02:52 PM
she looks REALLY thin, as thin as she's been since 93 in my opinion

May 21st, 2006, 03:00 PM
She does look a lot thinner. Although even when Monica was rake thin she could still hit with awesome power in her shots as her strokes were all about the timing. Great to see her again and hopefully there will be some pictures of her with ASV from this event soon :)

May 21st, 2006, 03:01 PM
Looking lovely and FIT :hearts:

May 21st, 2006, 03:03 PM
I want Monica back!!!

May 21st, 2006, 03:33 PM
She looks so thin!

I hope she returns for one more go. :)

May 21st, 2006, 03:42 PM
Im going to have to chime in saying the same thing, she is TINY! :hearts:

Looks like she's not coming back.

May 21st, 2006, 03:50 PM
Monica I miss oyu sooooooo much, i love you soooooo much to. Please come back.

The great thing about those pics is, she has been that thin for some time now which means that she is still training and hopefully will come back.

May 21st, 2006, 03:51 PM
pierce0415, this is the BEST post in ages! Thank you so much.

The Empress may not return to the Tour but hopefully we will still be able to see her in such events.

I can't believe I thin she looks! :eek:

I really hope she comes back because her weight was the only thing stopping her from winning slams.

But with her turning 33 in December, I don't really know if she'll be back...

May 21st, 2006, 04:13 PM
She looks so thin so I think she doesn`t eat so many ice creams anymore.
btw, she doesn`t look so young anymore ;) a mature lady

May 21st, 2006, 04:18 PM
Miss you Monica :sad:

May 21st, 2006, 06:38 PM
It's the thinnest Monica I've ever seen! :eek:

I don't really care if she comes back or not anymore. I think we all know that at this point she won't be really making an impact on the Tour if she does. I just want her to do whatever makes her happy :)

Moments have already been built Monica, we don't really need anymore :D

Monica looks amazing!!!! If only she had gotten into this shape 5 years ago? Great to see her again.

May 21st, 2006, 09:11 PM
She looks incredible

We miss you

May 21st, 2006, 09:17 PM
Monica looks so hot, she could give Maria a run for her Money.

May 21st, 2006, 09:30 PM
I was there, and yeah, she was so thin, unreconigzable :eek:

She seemed to be in realy good shape. Tomorrow she will play with Kimiko Date on a 3 v 3

I did some pics. I will post them when I can :)

:wavey: Monica is so nice :yeah:

May 21st, 2006, 09:50 PM
love the photo with her holding the bouquet of flowers.

I love that photo too. I'm using it as my new desktop.

Monica looks wonderful and happy. :hearts: :hearts: I love her and miss her so much...

May 21st, 2006, 09:55 PM
Is this recent?

It's kind of bittersweet to see Monica on a tennis court again. It would be nice to have her back and competing, but she also seems happy right now and if she's in any pain from her injuries I wouldn't want her to play with pain. Still very nice to see her out and about.

May 21st, 2006, 09:56 PM
The pic it's from today

May 21st, 2006, 11:33 PM
i wished monica came back. someone in this thread said that if she did come back she would have no impact on the tour. with monica's game, she could come back and do anything she can. i mean, only a handfull of players can hit the ball consistently hard everytime and go in. like sharapova or davenport. and they dont move any much better than monica, and they are still at the top of womens tennis. aside from that, monica has one of the toughest, if not the best, mental strength in tennis, which is lacking right now from the game. plus, if anything, monica fills up the seats.

She looks good. Nice and thin not rail thisn but conditioned. I think she can do alright with a comeback. I say DO IT!!!


Monica was the very first player on the WTA tour that got me into the tennis game. Ironically enough it was the I want to say 1998 French Open when she beat Hingis. It was her fathers death that got my attention. Her story made me begin to feel for the players. Then of course I loved the game.

Then I saw Venus and became involved in her story and it's been WTA ever since.

Looks the best I've seen her!

BARCELONA, May 21, 2006 – The public of Barcelona enjoyed many exciting moments on the first day of the IWC Tennis Trophy at the Real Club de Tenis Barcelona. Some of the greatest legends of tennis such as Mansour Bahrami, Ilie Nastase and Arantxa Sánchez-Vicario wowed the crowd with their skills.

The day began with a children’s clinic given by Laureus World Sports Academy Member Monica Seles on the centre court. Eighty boys and girls from tennis schools across Barcelona, aged between seven and 10 were divided into four teams to learn from this exceptional teacher. Emilio Sánchez-Vicario collaborated with Seles in the clinic that was organized by Luis Mediero, well-known for his tennis school.

At the end of this exciting activity the children were each given a prize by IWC, a model version of the Spitfire airplane, as well as an autograph from Monica Seles. On courts one and two, some members of the press were able to play against some of the greatest names of Spanish tennis: Alberto Berasategui, Albert Costa, and Javier and Emilio Sánchez-Vicario.

The Pro-exhibition games were the highlight of the day. The trio formed by Arantxa Sánchez-Vicario, Bahrami and Alex Corretja beat former Davis Cup team members Casal and Emilio and Javier Sánchez-Vicario, 6 - 4. This pattern was reversed in the other semi final where Svetlana Kuznetsova, Nastase, and Costa, lost to Berasategui, Sergi Bruguera and Carlos Costa, who also shared moments of glory on the Davis Cup team, in a tight game that finished 7 - 6. The final was just as exciting, with Berasategui, Bruguera and Carlos Costa coming out victorious 6 - 4.

Georges Kern, CEO IWC Schaffhausen, and Edwin Moses, Chairman of Laureus World Sport Academy, presented the winners with a trophy, and commended them for their involvement in the day’s events, while underlining their joint commitment to bettering the lives of underprivileged children all over the world through sports thanks to the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation.

Many of Barcelona’s tennis lovers and their families gathered at the open day at the IWC Tennis Trophy to enjoy the passion and the glamour of the best players of the past few decades. The Swiss luxury watch brand IWC Schaffhausen, a founding partner of Laureus, believes it is vital that the general public is able to share in this way the excitement and the build-up to the seventh annual Laureus World Sports Awards at the Parc del Fòrum, Barcelona, on the evening of Monday, May 22.

Monday glamour at Pro-Am event

Monday’s activities will place special emphasis on the glamour side of the event as Laureus guests come to the Real Club de Tenis Barcelona to watch Pro-Am games and an exceptional Exhibition match. Kimiko Date, Laureus World Sports Academy Member Sergey Bubka and Mercedes-Benz guest Uta Baudsch will play against Seles, Lorenzo Quinn and Argentinian supermodel Valeria Mazza at 10am and then Bahrami, Slavika Ecclestone, wife of Bernie Ecclestone, and Dr. Buhlbecker will measure their strength against the formidable trio of Navratilova, Laureus World Sports Academy Member Hugo Porta and German sports presenter Monika Lierhaus. The winners of both matches will then come face to face in what is sure to be an exciting final at noon.

The final exhibition match will see two exceptional partners coming together in what is sure to be an unforgettable event. Prince Albert of Monaco will pair off with vice-chairman of the Laureus World Sports Academy Boris Becker on one side of the court, while on the other Iñaki Urdangarin will unite forces with Alberto Costa. Both Prince Albert of Monaco and Iñaki Urdangarin share a passion for sports, and both have participated in Olympic Games, Prince Albert as member of the bobsleigh team and Iñaki Urdangarin, as part of the Spanish handball team, won a bronze medal in the Atlanta 1996 Olympics. With such credentials, the game will no doubt be an interesting grand finale to the IWC Tennis Trophy.
