--------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br />Associated Press

<br />VENICE, Fla. -- Monica Seles and her mother were treated for minor injuries after a car accident in which the other driver was charged with driving under the influence, police said.

The 28-year-old tennis star and her 62-year-old mother, Ester, were taken by ambulance to Doctors Hospital and later released.

"Monica hopes to be well enough to play in Australia in the new year," Seles' agent, Tony Godsick, said Friday. "Monica and her mother are very appreciative of everyone's concern and support."

Monica Seles was driving her sports utility vehicle Wednesday night when a pickup truck driven by Cynthia Bauman turned directly in front of Seles' path, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report.

Bauman, 42, was taken to the Sarasota County Jail and charged with DUI causing personal injury and property damage, and making an improper left turn, according to FHP reports. She was not injured.

Howard Tidwell, 41, of Sarasota, a passenger in Bauman's truck, also was treated for minor injuries.

A message left with the hospital Friday morning was not immediately returned.

Troopers said Seles, of Sarasota, and her mother were wearing seat belts
