Monica: From Fear To Victory

 
9780006388005: Monica: From Fear  To  Victory

The autobiography of tennis superstar, Monica Seles, describing for the first time her extraordinary rise to the peak of her profession and how she was devastated by a brutal stabbing, but fought back against injury and depression to play again.

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 profound and lasting effect 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.

Monica is the story of Seles’s extraordinary life – from her childhood as a tennis prodigy to her comeback. It gives a unique 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.

From the Back Cover:

At only seventeen, 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, 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.
