4.0 out of 5 stars It was okay, 20 April 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Return of a Champion: Monica Seles Story (Paperback)
I thought the book was okay but not great. I think what happened to Monica was tragic, but she played great in her first couple of tournaments when she returned but suffered a loss of form after winning the 1996 Australian Open. I think that loss of form was due to lack of conditioning. My point is how can she play so well at the 1995 Canadian Open and 1995 U.S. Open and play not as well since that time period. It was a bad situation but Steffi Graf was unfairly criticized by some tennis fans for the Seles attack by Gunther Parche, when in reality no sane fan would attack a rival of Graf's. Graf held her own against Seles, so the attack by this particular fan was irrational and pointless. It robbed the game of the best player in the world at the time and possibly someone that could have been the greatest player ever. Now Graf has to live with the stigma that she only regained the top spot because of the attack, when in reality we will never know if Graf could have regained the top spot if the attack never happened.
