seles chat transcript

seems like everyone is so excited to know about the chat
ok
Monica SELES :Hi everybody!
Kaz :Hi monica, where do you enjoy playing most?
Monica SELES :I really enjoy playing in Australia, probably the
most
Anna : Hi Monica, what do you dislike most about being
a profesional tennis player??
Monica SELES : All the travelling you have to do and being away
from your friends and family
coltpython : What was the hardest part about making your
comeback?
Monica SELES : I didn't really have any hard parts - it was very
smooth for me
Kazz : Hi monica if you are destined to win another slam,
which one would it be?
Monica SELES : Hi Kazz. I would take any one really! I wouldn't
care!
sabatinifan : Monica, who do you think are the most naturally
talented players ever?
Monica SELES :That's a tough one... I'd say Suzanne Lenglen. I
think the way she played the game was flawless
aaronlucas : How busy of a tennis schedule do you plan on
playing for the rest of the year?
Monica SELES: Hi Aaron.. This year I plan on playing a full
schedule - the usual 17 tournaments
Juusox : Hi Monica! What part of your play do you think you
need to develop the most?
Monica SELES: I'd like to improve my serve and my returns
Bernadett : Who is your best friend in the wtatour?
Monica SELES: I have a couple of friends, but I like to keep that
private. They're friends I will keep once I finish
playing tennis
coltpython : How has your approach to tennis changed in the
two phases of your career?
Monica SELES: It hasn't really. I still work very hard, want to win
each match. Still enjoy myself out there and stay
very competitive all the time
yseult24 : Monica, how often do you visit websites like
monica-seles.com, created by your fans and
dedicated to you ? Do you appreciate this kind of
tribute ?
Monica SELES :It's a great honor! My friends give me a tough time
because I don't use the computer that much, but I
really appreciate the time fans give to me.
Sometimes my friends print out messages from
you, which is great for me!
tommyboy : How confident are you, Monica, of your chances at
the French Open?
Monica SELES: First I'm really happy to be playing, after missing it
last year. I was really nervous about nearly
missing it again this year, but I'm looking forward
to some good matches here in Madrid and I'm
looking forward to Paris
aaronlucas :Now that the year end championships have moved
to LA, do you plan on playing?
Monica SELES: Oh definitely Aaron! If I qualify, for sure, it would
be fantastic!
frederik : What are your hobbies except tennis?
Monica SELES: Hi Frederik. I like to spend time with my friends, go
to the movies, go on a boat or to the beach. Lots
of things
aaronlucas : You have not played much on clay this season due
to illness. How comfortable are you feeling on it
going into roland garros?
Monica SELES: I'm feeling very confident and very excited to play
after missing last year.
katrientje :With which ATP-player would you like to play mixed
doubles at RG?
Monica SELES: Oh, I've never played mixed doubles at any Grand
Slam! So, I don't expect to start playing it at this
stage of my career!
tommyboy :I know you had some health problems, with
yourfoot and a bad stomach. How healthy do you
feel?
Monica SELES: I feel really good and very happy and that I've had
enough time going into the French Open
frederik : What is your favorite male player?
Monica SELES: I have quite a few that I like to watch on a
different surfaces and I'm good friends with a
couple of them
coltpython :What do you feel have to do to become #1 again?
is that still your goal?
Monica SELES: Definitely! I have to get stronger and more
consistent than I have been in the past and stay
healthy, of course!
Juusox : What are your plans for the future after you will
have finished playing tennis actively?
Monica SELES: I really haven't decided what I want to do. I'd like
to spend some time not travelling and being home
and then deciding what I want to do.
willy : Monica you live in Sarasota. How is your life in
Sarasota?
Monica SELES: It's great. I really enjoy the little time I get to
spend there with my friends. It's a very quiet life I
enjoy there, with some very nice beaches.
AlvaroMadrid : Do you like madrid tournament???
Monica SELES: I really like the city and the site. It's beautiful
there, and you get some good practice in before
Roland Garros. I like to visit the museums here
too.
hammer : How do you keep motivated to still work hard after
such a long time at the top
Monica SELES:Hi Hammer! I really enjoy playing the game of
tennis and don't view it as hard work
marioo : What do you see yourself doing in 10 years from
now?
Monica SELES : I really don't know right now. I'm really enjoying
myself playing tennis right now and when the time
comes, we'll see!
mishar :Are you worried about playing three weeks in a
row?
Monica SELES :Not really, I'm going to have a day's break
between here and the French because I'm not
playing doubles, so I'll be fine
TomLovesMonica: Hi dear Monica! Which music do you prefer?
Who are your favorite artists?
Monica SELES: Hi Tom! I really like a variety of artists - I like the
CDs that have a variety of artists so I don't get
bored with just one or two!
luke : Monica you are the Best! Who do you find most
difficult to play against?*
Monica SELES: Thanks Luke! All the top players - the Williams
sisters, Capriati, definitely Lindsay, Martina and
the Belgians too.
tommyboy : What is your favorite TV show ?
Monica SELES: I don't really watch TV, so unfortunately I don't
have one!
leontine : Hi monica, do you have other hobbies besides
tennis?
Monica SELES: I like to spend time with my friends, going to the
movies, the beach
Albert ear Monica, Do you plan to play one day with
Arantxa, as you played with MJ Fernandez, you
seemed to have so much fun, Would you do it
again ?
Monica SELES: Oh yes, I would like to! We tried last year, but
then I got injured, but definitely in the future - it
would be great
rythmfr : do you think women should gain as much money
as men ??
Monica SELES: Well, it all depends on how you view the game,
whether it's on time or quality. It's a debatable
question
Ceph : Hi Monica, do you like this chat session? When will
we have another chance
Monica SELES: This is my first time doing a chat - I'm enjoying it
very much. I'm not that computer literate, but I'm
really liking this!
Thanks Mishar! I tried to stay more patient and
add a little bit more topspin to my groundstrokes
so I don't make that many errors

ABrown1202 : Was it difficult handling all of your success in the
early 90's at such a young age?
Monica SELES :Yeah, definitely. Everything came fast - all the
attention and pressure. It's very tough to deal
with that when you're 15 or 16
ZcorpionTennis: Hi Monica, Thank you for your time! The
tournament is in Spain.- Do you speak Spanish?
You can write something for we?
Monica SELES :Unfortunately not! But once I stop playing I would
love to learn Spanish and French
sylvia o you travel a lot outside of tennis?
Monica SELES :No, when I have my off time I like to stay in one
place!
baptiste : And what about your french? I heard you get
french lesson..
Monica SELES: Yeah, I've taken some French lessons, but I
haven't gone that far! It's difficult when you only
get the chance to speak it one or two weeks a
year
iban : Which is your aim this year?
Monica SELES: My aim is too stay healthy until the end of the
season, play consistently throughout the year.
Albert : Don't you think there are too much pressure
between matches of a tournament ? What do you
do to relax after a match ?
Monica SELES: I try to stretch and rest and go home and prepare
for the next match. During the big tournaments
you don't get a chance to relax, but thankfully
there are only five tournaments like that during
the year!
mishar : Do you ever watch videos of your opponents to
prepare for a match?
Monica SELES: No, not really.
Monica SELES: Last question please
Floortje : Hi Monica, do you realise how many fans you'e
got?
Monica SELES :I'm very fortunate and thankful for all the support
I"ve had through my good and bad times. It keeps
me going all the time knowing there are so many
people behind me.
Monica SELES :Thanks a lot everybody!
Monica SELES: Bye bye!

Thanks for posting that. I'm actually good friends with Coltpython. He didn't tell me that he would be at the chat.

that was a great chat!
it was amusing how she wouldn't give ANY details, though, like her friends and her music tastes.
of course, she wants her privacy and I totally respect that. it was just funny how diplomatically well she answered those questions without compromising her privacy - well done!
