She had a foot injury in that match that would end eventually end her career. Ironically, her only loss in the first round of a slam was also her last match ever

She only speaks Russian with her father in her matches.

She looks fabulous! Speaking if her family, does anyone know what Zoltan is up to these days?

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

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.

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.

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

Hope life continues to treat her well.

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."

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