I think I spelt it right. I was reading Venus Envy through again this week and it came to my attention about Viele, so I decided to see how she was doing, but I could not find a WTA ranking or anything. I am wondering if anyone knows what Monique is doing, or has she left tennis behind.

Her official web site (http://www.monique-viele.com/) no longer exists, nor does the site of her official fan club (http://www.moniquevielefanclub.com/).

Here's a sad piece of news (http://pub18.ezboard.com/fwtastars35397wtastarsgossip.showMessage?topicID=7 .topic), although I cannot vouch for its accuracy.

Here's a site (http://capriati.www7.50megs.com/vindex.html) that hasn't been updated in several years.

A Wertheim July 2001 mailbag (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/tennis/news/2001/07/02/mailbag/) mailbag has the last official mention of her I can find.

Monique had a few injuries last year during the summer and didn't play for the rest of th year. She hopes to start playing satellites in the U.S. this summer.

sadly her father past away during last year. she played on a bit after that but then got injured in september and said she wasn't laying anymore tennis this year (which was 2002). she said she wanted to focus more on her tennis career and that she would play this year.

i never found out when she was going to start. i guess Selesfan1 answered that one.

but she said she wanted to put more focus on tennis so i think she'll be back.

Here is my Monique site. http://members.lycos.co.uk/capriati/vindex.html She has only played one tournament since I last updated it and lost first round.
