Monica: From Fear to Victory by Monica Seles
At only 17, Monica Seles became the number one female tennis player in the world. As she won championship after championship, leaving established stars in her wake, it seemed that nothing could stop her. Nothing, that is, but a nine-inch knife wielded by a crazed fan of Steffi Graf. The vicious attack had a lasting affect on Seles. In this intimate and revealing autobiography she describes for the first time the terrifying downward spiral of her emotions; her fear, vulnerability and depression, and how she struggled to regain her health, self-confidence and drive. This is the story of Seles's life from her childhood as a tennis prodigy to her comeback. It gives an insight into the world of professional tennis, reveals what it is like to be number one in the world, and is an intimate and inspirational account of Seles's personal struggle against her enemies within and without.
