Funny, that's what her doctor called it. 'The injury to Monica's back ....'

What would be better? The 'wound'? The 'incision'? The 'old-news-but-I-don't-have-a-life-so-I'm-focusing-on-an-event-12-years-ago-by-a-player-who isn't-even-competing'?

What Monica Seles got as a result of that attack was an injury.

A narrow but not shallow incision in the upper back, which healed completely in two months or so.

They say if you fall off a horse, you should get right back on. Otherwise, it may be a long time til you can make yourself do it. Monica chose not to come back on the court as soon as she was physically able. In fact, she waited over another year.

I stopped feeling sorry for Monica the third time I heard her say 'I don't want people to feel sorry for me'. That seemed to be the best way to honor a great champion. TREAT HER LIKE A CHAMPION, not a victim.

What happened to Monica in 1992 is OVER. If she were standing next to you, SHE'D tell you to stop bringing it up over and over and over. She's said enough times she doesn't want to focus onthe past, but rather the present and the future. Why is it so hard to accede to your favorite's wishes?
This is EXACTLY what you should have posted to DA FOREHAND. The only reason I brought it up was because, DA FOREHAND in his original post states, "Or was that something only Steffi Graf should have done?"

He is the one who brought it up and was making implications about the Hamburg incident since certain Seles fans felt Steffi should have mentioned Monica in her acceptance speech, which she did. It was an attempt at sarcasm by DA FOREHAND. I was just pointing out the difference in situation between Serena and Monica.

You, in your haste to reply, obviously didn't realize that.

Volcana, you should of quoted DA FOREHAND instead of hingis-seles... hingis-seles was just pointing out the HUGE difference between Serena's current situation and the situation with Monica.

Now as for the question is this thread, I really don't see why the US Open Champion would mention Serena. Even if they wanted to, what would they say? Thanks Serena for not showing up? I dedicate this victory to Serena? By now those who wanted to say Get Well Soon have said it and I doubt that after winning the US Open any player ( except Venus) would even be thinking about Serena.
Congratulations!

You're one of the handful of posters on WTA World, who actually read and understand what is written before responding.

Injuries are part of the game weather forced or ial.

Yes, the champion should mention Serena. Everybody else knows she owns that title. and yes Monica Fans need to let that incident go and stop playing the victim.
Da Forehand isn't a Monica fan. He's a Steffi fan. :rolleyes:

*I'm assuming you meant Da Forehand, since he's the one who brought that incident up and is trying make Steffi look like the victim*
