She looked completely disinterested, deliberately so, at the Exhibition in Paris last year and at the presentation ceremony at RG last year, and during the latest Exhibition. I don't know why she does them. In the latest photos for her book promo she looked very odd.

I don't buy that she is over what happened to her in 93 or what happened to her father. I think she is affected. More so than even when she was playing as no doubt training and playing and competing were distractions.

Id rather remember Monica as she was.
I said all that like three years ago, when I showed the picture of her and Tommy Haas to friends. I had to tell them she is a former world #1 till they finally guesses Monica. They couldn´t even recognize her.

Re: WTF is wrong with Monica?

She is 40, no one expects her to play as a professional player anymore. I highly doubt she showed up for a pay check. As for her looking skinny/unhealthy, she's been like that for years now, not sure what the problem is, maybe she is ill.

Re: WTF is wrong with Monica?

She played tennis ages ago. Her career is long gone. Who cares? She's not a professional anymore so it doesn't really matter.

Off-topic, but Nastya looks amazing for having three children already. And are all the ballgirls models?

People who carried extra weight for years never look good when they become very thin, especially when they don't lift weights. The 'grandma' look isn't automatically a sign she is unhealthy.

Also, if I recall correctly, Esther looked older than her age, too. Monica is simply getting old and genetics might not be on her side. Again, not a sign she's unhealthy.

Dating older men shouldn't come as a surprise if she has body image issues. She knows she won't be judged and it's probably 'comforting' to date older men.

I have no idea why she plays those exhibitions. I'm not sure if I believe her when she says she still loves the sport; you would think she would practice more often if she would. Perhaps she has no idea what to do with her life and the books/exhibitions are a way to fill voids in her life.

Hingis looks amazing. She still got the touch. My favorite WTA player of all time.

Monica is a legend of the sport and made a huge impact on the game. I have an enormous amount of respect for her as should any tennis fan.

Re: WTF is wrong with Monica?

Seriously? STOP IT! At 13:05 you can CLEARLY HEAR Monica tell the ref that she is ill and there's no way she can play. She said she felt like she was going to collapse, but did not want to disappoint the crowd so she stuck it out.

I think Monica looks fantastic and it's stupd to think some random fucking exo can tarnish her legacy or undue her accomplishments.

Re: WTF is wrong with Monica?

Monica was just sick that day. Some people are making too much of it, especially with the ridiculous anorexic comments. That said, she certainly still has major mobility issues (which can be seen in other exhos), and it's no wonder that she never was able to forge a comeback after her 2003 French Open departure.

May Monica fully heal in every possible way.

i'm not sure why you're so defensive about people voicing concern as a result of her appearance? in 2009 when her book was out which dealt with her eating issues she looked healthy and claimed succeeding over her eating disorders was her biggest victory - i think the excessive thinness and frailty of her body at this exo is of real concern as it calls into question whether monica has overcome these issues
