The autobiography of the tennis superstar chronicles her rise to the heights of professional tennis, the stabbing by a rival's deranged fan that forced her out of the game, and her difficult, ultimately triumphant recovery from the violent attack

From the Publisher:

At only 17, she became the youngest No. 1 woman tennis player in the world. She won championship after championship, defeating the legends, amazing the tennis world and gaining the love and respect of fans around the globe. It seemed that nothing could stop her. Nothing, that is, but a nine-inch knife in her back wielded by a crazed fan of Steffi Graf's.

The vicious attack shocked millions and had a profound and lasting effect on Monica Seles. As far as people were concerned, Seles had retreated from the spotlight and virtually disappeared.

In this intimate and revealing autobiography, Seles describes, for the first time, the terrifying range of her emotions -- her fears, the feelings of vulnerability, the terror and depression -- and how she struggled to regain her health, self-confidence and drive.

For two years, Seles was isolated from the tennis world that had been her life. Now she is back. Monica is the story of her extraordinary life, from her childhood as a tennis prodigy to her triumphant return. It offers a unique insight into the world of professional tennis, gives a sense of what it is like to be No. 1 at such a young age, and is an inspirational account of one woman's personal struggle.

Review:

'Compelling reading' Sunday Telegraph 'She reveals the secrets of her life...sensational' Daily Express 'Tears and triumph...Monica Seles is a reborn champion caught up in a mass of conflicting emotion' Sunday Times '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
