Seles.co.uk, Closed.

Firstly, I have never questioned my love of Monica and I will always support her in anything she does. However, with the uncertainty of her comeback and the amount of money the site costs (just over $20 per month plus anual domain name renewal, which may not seem like a lot but it adds up), I've decided to close the doors on www.seles.co.uk

I will retain the rights to the domain name www.seles.co.uk and it will eventually return to the web. However, it's unknown if it will be just a personal site or a shrine to our beloved Miss Seles.

For those of you that have Seles sites, keep up the great work! And if you want to peruse my vast archive of images and files, please drop me a PM and I'll see what I can do. I have over 2300 images and all of her head to heads and yearly results, plus interview transcripts, etc that I will be perserving for myself and could be willing to share.

I will always love Monica and she will remain my first tennis 'love' always, but the time has come to do the unthinkable, yet the inevitable.

Seles.co.uk has been through many name changes and domain names, but has been continuosly online since February 1st, 1999. This website has been a truly enlightening experience and one I shall not look back upon with any regrets.

What a sad, sad post! But thanks for the wonderful work you've done since '99! Let's just hope Monica will return and compel you to re-open the site... But if (gulp!) she doesn't, you've done her proud!!!

I've followed the evolution of your site since the first time it came out. Your site has been one of my top favorites over the years. It's sad to see it end, but with all the uncertainty lately I understand your decision totally. You have done a great job over the years, and the closing of your Seles site will be a big loss for the Seles fans/community. However, life must go on and I wish you much luck in your future endeavors.

--from a fan who have ALWAYS followed/visited your site almost everyday..........

Heeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreeeeeeee commmmmmmeeeeeeeeeeesssssssss

I respect your decision, but isn't it ironic that it comes just eleven days before Monica's planned return to the WTA Tour?

andrewboard, have you not seen the item in 'general discussion' that suggests Monica won't be playing at either the Pilot Pen or US Open??????

Certain folks are saying it's just one step from her retirement (not me, mind you! But she hasn't said much lately, so you can see how people might start to get edgy about whether or not she'll ever play on the tour again...)....

The US Open WC's have been announced, and Monica is not one of them...

No, I try to avoid visiting General Messages any more - got to keep that Internet addiction under control!

The latest news I've read on Monica is the following:

"Monica Seles is 50-50 to play the U.S. Open. She's trying to get fit enough from a lingering foot injury not to embarrass herself. She tried to come back at the French Open, but wasn't ready. Seles hasn't played a Slam since the 2003 French Open."

All the W/C's are given out and she's not on the 'next-in' list.
