She is so great, and truly a talented tennis lady. One of my three loves (the others being Gaby and Jennifer!!) Would she have been the best ever? When would she have been overtaken and who by? Interesting to speculate.
if she was not stabbled, she surely would be the best ever, already won 8 slams when she was just 19
Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!
Ennis and Jack found something most people don't ever find in this life...true love, the deepest, purest, most beautiful thing in the universes. Ennis and Jack have TRUE LOVE. They are SOULMATES. They have a love so deep, so pure, so strong, that it transcends everything, it's eternal.
Nobody knows what would have happened. Personally I think that she would have stopped playing tennis by now having had so much success and titles. But I don't understand those people saying Steffi is the best when we all know that after Monica attended Grand Slams Steffi won about 1 per year. Still it is a great effort to play as long as she did (same for Martina N.).
As Monica fans we "know" who is the greatest as a person and as a player. Note: Being great is not always the same as being the most successful.
Monica announced her official retirement on February 14, 2008. What a sad day! I'm proud to be a Selestial and I admire Monica for her fighting spirit and her character. The tennis world has lost one of the greatest players of all time! Have a wonderful post-tennis life!
Arantxa, you will always be in my heart. Thanks for all the great matches you gave us and for just being a wonderful person on and off court. All the best for your future!
