‘She reveals the secrets of her life… sensational’
‘Tears and triumph… Monica Seles is a reborn champion caught up in a mass of conflicting emotion’
‘Monica chronicles the trials and tribulation of the two-year struggle that she endured before she could face a public return in emotional yet gripping fashion’
Manchester Evening News
At only seventeen, Monica Seles became the number one female tennis player in the world. As she won championship after championship, leaving established starts in her wake, it seemed that nothing could stop her. Nothing, but a nine-inch knife wielded by a crazed fan of Steffi Graf.
The vicious attack had a profound and lasting effect on Seles. After it, and the second blow of her father's cancer that was discovered only days later, Monica retreated from the world's spotlight. For two years she locked herself away from the tennis world that had been her life. Now she is back.
In this intimate and revealing autobiography of an extraordinary life, Monica describes for the first time the terrifying downward spiral of her emotions;
her fear, vulnerability and depressions, and how she struggled to regain her health, self-confidence and drive and make a comeback into the world.
‘Seles slams back in grand fashion’
