October 13, 1993.
Gunther Parche receives a suspended sentence for his plot to critically injure tennis star Monica Seles. Parche would be set free and never step foot in jail again. Later that same day, Monica Seles is served with a summons for a $10M breach of contract lawsuit by Fila. Fila contends that since Seles is not playing, she is not holding up her end of the deal and serves legal action to have their contract reveresed. Fila and Seles would later settle out of court for an undisclosed amount, widely beleived to be north of $5M.

Yeah, that´s true....I think they should have waiten and see what decision Monica was going to take.
In fact her impending litigation (as she writes in her autobiog) made her decision to stay away even easier. She felt she was being punished, etc.
