On Saturday Monica Seles was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame, big congratulations!
The 35-year old captured 53 Tour titles during her career; was the top lady baller for a total of 178 non-consecutive weeks (fifth all-time); won the 1991 and 1992 US Opens, the 1990-92 French Opens, the 1991-93 and 1996 Australian Opens; and earned the big end of the year prize at the Tour Championships from 1990-92.
Monica had a very memorable career which included the worst single event to ever happen in tennis, back in Hamburg in 1993 in which she was attacked with a knife by a fan. That was a very big turning point in her career but it was just amazing to see her return 27 months later and claim the Australian Open in 1996.
Growing up as a little girl, I could never dream I would be inducted into the Hall of Fame. I have a hard time believing it now.
