Monica Seles talks about the US Open - she looks stunning!

Bianca winning here is so reminiscent of Monica winning in 1991 against Navratilova. What do you guys think? I mean obviously it wasn't her first major but it was her first US Open.

Thanks for the link. Monica indeed does look great, better than she did falling asleep at the Open

I guess it's somewhat reminiscent of Monica's run, but like you said Monica had won 3 slams before that point and was already #1.

It must have been nice for Seles to see her two daughters BB and Bibi duke it out in the semis.

Monica had a nice quote about Serena in the book Facing Serena Williams. ""I came off the court against Serena. I knew my days were numbered."

Re: Monica Seles talks about the US Open - she looks stunning!

Monica looks great, I'm surprised she still has such a noticeable accent, she's been living in the States since she was 12, though she might still spend part of her time in Hungary or Serbia, am not sure.

Looking as good, just as gracious and intelligent and well-spoken as ever.

Hope life continues to treat her well.

language works differently for everybody. usually when you learn to speak another language prior to your teenage years, then you will not have an accent or have very little accent. that is generally true, but not always. i know people came to the states when they were 9 and still speak english with an accent thick as a brick.

Re: Monica Seles talks about the US Open - she looks stunning!

I have known several old Austrian Jewish scientists who came to the UK and US as teenagers escaping the Nazis in the 1930s, who still had thick accents when they died in their 80s and 90s.

Re: Monica Seles talks about the US Open - she looks stunning!

Sofia Kenin came to the US at one year old and she actually has a slight Russian accent

Anyway, it was great to see Monica again I miss her so much. It's a shame she never got to end her career on her own terms; she had that one-sided loss against Nadia Petrova at the 2003 French Open and never played another match.

Kenin, no doubt, spoke Russian at home when she was growing up, and probably still today.

I suspect this is/was Seles' issue as well...(speaking Serbian/Hungarian with her parents/brother)

That's what she said!!!
